Paul Millsap says Hawks didn’t even offer a contract for him to stay

New Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk’s impact is being felt in Atlanta, as the team reportedly didn’t even make a single contract offer to keep Paul Millsap in Atlanta.

“They didn’t want to make an offer,” Millsap told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “So it was pretty simple. Denver was the team.”

In April, Hawks principal owner Tony Ressler was singing a different tune.

“We love Paul Millsap,” he told the AJC. “We are trying to re-sign him. We want him to stay here. We think he is a really special player and a special person that we want on our team and in our locker room and we are going to make every effort imaginable to keep him.”

Since then, the Hawks fired GM Wes Wilcox, and brought on Schlenk, the former Warriors assistant GM. He was far less convincing than Ressler was with regards to Millsap.

“We’d like to have him,” Schlenk told the AJC. “The reality is, he might get better offers than we can make him.”

According to reports from Knicks reporter Ian Begley, the team doesn’t envision Tim Hardaway, Jr., fresh of inking a four-year, $71 million deal in New York, and Anthony sharing the floor together next season.

Wojnarowski previously reported the Knicks were looking to Cheap Vintage Hockey Jerseys move Anthony and were in preliminary discussions over a potential four-team deal that would move Anthony to the Rockets to play with Chris Paul and James Harden. However, it sounds like those deals are off, or at least paused, and that with Perry the team may meet with Anthony to try and convince him to return to the Knicks Cheap USA Jerseys without any problems next season.
