Paul Millsap, a 35-year-old power foward, is not in a hurry to sign with a team once the NBA’s free agency period opens this week. According to Denver Post NBA writer Mike Singer, Millsap is prepared to let the market shake out before making a decision regarding his next stop.

Earlier in the week, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor suggested that the Trail Blazers could pursue Millsap on the open market. The former Jazz and Hawks standout has played for the Nuggets for the past three seasons. According to Singer, the Nuggets are hoping that Millsap will return for a fourth year.

Last season, Millsap appeared in 51 regular season games (48 starts) with Denver. In those outings, he averaged 11.6 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. The emergence of fellow Nuggets big man Jerami Grant, who declined the final year of his deal earlier this week in order to re-work a new contract, could push Millsap further down Denver’s offseason to-do list.
