Millsap Opting Out of Contract

It appears Paul Millsap will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

According to ESPN sources, Millsap has informed the Atlanta Hawks he’s opting out of the $21.4-million player option on his deal.

This comes as no surprise as most expected the 32 year old to opt out of his final year in order to seek a max deal on the open market. The Hawks have expressed optimism in retaining him and the all-star did mention earlier this month that he would like to stay with the team whose Bird Rights allow them to offer him a five-year deal worth about $205 million.

Throughout his 4 years in Atlanta, he averaged 17.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.2 blocks.
