According to Mitch Lawrence of The New York Daily News, the Brooklyn Nets are eyeing Millsap as a trade target.
This should come as music to his ears.
The Nets are about as crowded as the Utah Jazz at the power forward position. But, there is no young, rising talent set to take Millsap's spot in Brooklyn—he would finally be "the man" at his position.
Reggie Evans would get his fair share of minutes as the team's rebounding maestro.
Andray Blatche, with his efficiency, and Kris Humphries, with his rebounding prowess, would garner some playing time as well.
To acquire Millsap, however, at least one of those players would be dealt.
Millsap is the combination of a space-the-floor scorer and interior banger that the Nets have been looking for. Paired with Brook Lopez, it's quite likely that Brooklyn will have found its frontcourt of the future.
Best of all for Millsap, he's an unrestricted free agent. If it doesn't work out as the paper rosters would suggest, he's free to sign elsewhere.
