Paul Millsap has finally found a new home in the NBA, and it’s with one of the Celtics’ top rivals in the Eastern Conference. As reported by Shams Charania on Thursday, the Brooklyn Nets have agreed to a deal with the veteran forward.
Millsap turned 36 years old in February. He spent the 2020-21 season with the Denver Nuggets, averaging 20.8 minutes per game to go with 9.0 points and 4.7 rebounds.
In all, Millsap has played 15 seasons in the NBA with the Jazz, Hawks, and Nuggets. He ranks 13th among all active players with 14,421 career points.
The Celtics most recently signed center Robert Williams and guard Josh Richardson to contract extensions under new President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens. They lost to the Nets in five games in an opening-round best-of-seven series during the 2021 NBA Playoffs.
