I accept. Had a really hard time finding a taker for Millsap. I think he's quite underrated by most of you. I was looking to shed some salary, which this helps me with. While the money I save isn't drastic, I was able to get back a player that didn't significantly hurt my 8th seed chase and didn't cause me to take on additional long-term salary. I plan to continue to shed salary so that I am not over the hard cap come draft night.
Millsap is 35 years old, averages 12/6, and is getting paid $34.9M next year. No contender wants to take on a declining vet with that salary and no young team wants to waste cap space on him. He'll have more value next season when that becomes an expiring contract. Good trade for LAC
