Thank you all for warm welcome
Milsap is definitely declining, but maybe Greene could fill in starter role and Nnaji could get some minutes.
I don't see us getting much in return for Milsap in regular trade, so maybe we should wait for some bigger trades and try to switch Milsap and Barton for something more useful.
Millsap will have more value as an expiring, although closer to the deadline IMO. Barton could be the same but with his rollercoaster play who knows if he'll opt in or out (I'm guessing his ego will convince him to opt out). Having both expire here may have more value than trading both
It would depend on who or what you were getting, but trading Millsap goes against what the front office has always been about.
It was pretty widely reported that Millsap and Boston were close to a deal when the Nuggets made their offer, so he reportedly choose to stay here for his family.
The front office likes to say that everybody is family and that they always take care of their players. They even bragged about trading Beasley and Juancho somewhere that they would get guaranteed minutes last year which both wanted. So if you trade Millsap it is going to have to be to a team that is at least as good as the Nuggets, a team willing to buy him out to go ring chase, or Atlanta (I say Atlanta because that is where he and his family stay during the offseason and he owns several businesses down there.).
Also you have to be aware that Millsap was signed to a 1 year deal using Bird Rights, so he has a no trade clause, making me think the only place they will be able to trade him would be Atlanta.
Barton I think they would trade in the right deal just so he can go be a starter elsewhere, but Millsap I don't think they will even try unless the Hawks want him.
