The next domino could be close to falling.

The Atlanta Hawks are reportedly poised to send Kyle Korver to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a still yet to be determined return. However, the Hawks could be nowhere close to finished with tweaking the roster and the next domino could be falling in the near future with a trade involving Paul Millsap.

Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports that Millsap discussions are taking place with the Hawks and “several teams”. This makes a great deal of sense given the choice to sell on Korver, as it could signal a wholesale shift toward building to the future.

In addition, Millsap was already linked to trade talks earlier this week and he would be the biggest and most obvious trade candidate given his pending free agency. At the time of this post, specifics are tough to come by, but the Atlanta Hawks could be moving in an entirely different direction moving forward.

UPDATE

The Vertical’s Shams Charania reports that the Hawks are in discussions with several teams about forward Paul Millsap and that Atlanta is motivated to move him sooner rather than later.

Atlanta (19-16) is engaged in discussions with several teams on forward Paul Milsap, and the organization is motivated to move him sooner rather than later, sources said. Toronto, Denver, Sacramento and Philadelphia have expressed an interest in Milsap, who can become a free agent in July.

UPDATE

Add the New Orleans Pelicans to the list of teams interested in dealing for Paul Millsap
