Paul Millsap to Phoenix move being explored

On the 356 day anniversary of a Paul Millsap to Phoenix move being explored.

Remember last summer? When we were teased with the possibility of Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap joining the Suns only to have what would have been the most Suns move ever melt away in the Phoenix sun?

Well if that potential transaction falling apart bummed you out, fear not Phoenix faithful. It’s 2017. And we get to do it all over again.

On the talking picture box ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported that the Suns are one of a few teams that are exploring obtaining Millsap’s services.

From Windhorst’s report:

“There are three or four teams out there that are willing to give Paul Millsap a max-level contract, and sources have told me that the Hawks have already begun getting some feelers on Paul Millsap sign-and-trades. Teams like the Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Denver Nuggets [are] interested in Paul Millsap, and this is so interesting because, at midseason, Paul Millsap was put on the trade block and there was a revolt in the locker room and Mike Budenholzer, the team president, pushed back against it. They took him off the trade block and then here we are a few months later - they're probably going to lose Paul Millsap anyway and Mike Budenholzer is no longer in charge of the team.”

Last year we hated it. Do we hate it again this year? I’m pretty sure we still hate it.

Or do we?

Yes we do. But feel free to disagree. What’s a package you feel comfortable putting together for a player of Millsap’s caliber?
