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.
