Hawks are reportedly listening to trade offers for Paul Millsap

The Atlanta Hawks are just two years removed from winning 60 games, but at just 18-16 this season and facing the possibility that their best player could leave in free agency this summer without compensation, the team is listening to trade offers, according to a report from ESPN.

The Atlanta Hawks have begun listening to trade pitches for All-Star forward Paul Millsap in recent days, according to league sources.

S‎ources told ESPN.com that the Hawks, fearful of losing Millsap in free agency without compensation in the summer, are not openly shopping him but are taking calls on the 31-year-old and other pending free agents, notably sharpshooter Kyle Korver and swingman Thabo Sefolosha.

Here is what is important to remember. The fact the Hawks are listening doesn’t make a trade of Millsap imminent or even likely. Something could happen at some point. However, Millsap is not on the trading block.
