Free agent forward Paul Millsap has agreed to a two-year, $19 million contract with the Atlanta Hawks, multiple media outlets reported.
The Utah Jazz relinquished their rights to Millsap earlier Friday to clear space for a trade with the Golden State Warriors. In that deal, the Jazz acquired the expiring contracts of Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush.
Millsap averaged 14.6 points and seven rebounds for the Jazz last season.
Forward DeMarre Carroll, Millsap's teammate in Utah, also agreed to sign with the Hawks. Carroll will sign a two-year deal worth $5 million, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He averaged 6.0 points and 2.8 rebounds last season.
These two moves may indicate the Hawks have given up on re-signing free agent forward Josh Smith.
