Paul Millsap Returns To Hawks For $58 Million

The Toronto Raptors snatched DeMarre Carroll earlier Wednesday from the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks wasted no time to seal a contract with their best available free agent, Paul Millsap, for the next three seasons.

The Hawks will re-sign unrestricted free agent forward Paul Millsap – a two-time All-star, with the franchise, according to RealGM.com – for three seasons and an aggregate salary of $58 million. The final year of the deal will be a player option, which could free up 30-year-old Millsap to sign another big contract after he gets a salary hike in 2016 summer.
