Veteran Paul Millsap has been one of the better free agents available for weeks now, but that came to an end Thursday morning.
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Millsap agreed to a deal with the Brooklyn Nets, joining one of the favorites to win the 2022 NBA Championship.
Charania also reported that Millsap had offers from various playoff contenders, including the Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls, and Los Angeles Clippers.
Millsap, who is 36-years-old, spent the past four seasons with the Denver Nuggets, playing in 215 games and averaging 11.8 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.
Over his career, Millsap has averaged 13.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per game in 1,057 career games.
A second-round pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, Millsap has been named to four All-Star teams, making the All-Defense team in 2015-16z
The only thing missing is an NBA Championship.
To that point, the Nets are coming off a very strong season, finishing second in the Eastern Conference, and will be returning all of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, Joe Harris, Blake Griffin and Bruce Brown. Brooklyn also went out and acquired Patty Mills in free agency, while drafting Summer League standout Cam Thomas.
