Here’s What the Miami Heat Would Be Willing to Offer in a Deal for Paul Millsap
- Updated: June 13, 2020
The Heat are looking at two possible options in their pursuit of Millsap.
Was told it is interest only as mid level type addition to join a contender type of scenario
if other teams scoop up Goran (&/or others) on lucrative multi year contracts…..they would try for a balloon 1 year offer to a player like Millsap (rolling over space to 2021) https://t.co/j3dRpeg2fO

By signing Millsap to a one-year deal, whether under the mid-level exception or in a bigger deal, Miami would still have that option the following offseason.
With point guard Goran Dragic, forwards Solomon Hill, Derrick Jones Jr. and Jae Crowder and center Meyers Leonard all set to hit free agency in 2020, Miami could find itself with more money than expected to offer Millsap.
Center Kelly Olynyk can also opt out of his contract at the end of this season, which would give Miami another hole to fill.
Millsap, 35, has seen his production decline the past three seasons. After being named to four consecutive All-Star teams when he was with the Atlanta Hawks, Millsap has averaged just 12.9 points per game over his three seasons with the Nuggets.
The Heat still have the 2019-20 season to focus on, as they currently hold the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
