The Atlanta Hawks and free-agent forward Paul Millsap have agreed to a two-year contract worth $19 million, according to multiple reports.The deal can't be made official until the NBA's moratorium period ends on July 10.
The Utah Jazz have now lost Millsap and Al Jefferson who agreed to a contract with the Charlotte Bobcats on a three-year, $41 million deal. The Jazz recently absorbed nearly $24 million in expiring contracts from the Golden State Warriors for multiple draft picks in what appears to be a rebuilding effort.
Millsap started 78 games for the Jazz last season and averaged 14.6 points-per-game on 49 percent shooting from the field with 7.1 rebounds a game.
