After adding Otto Porters Jr., Nemanja Bjelica and Andre Iguodala at the start of free agency, the Golden State Warriors could have their eyes on another veteran free agent before the new season begins.

According to Mike Singer of the Denver Post, the Warriors are one of the teams interested in Paul Millsap. The Brooklyn Nets are also interested in the veteran forward, per Singer.

Via @msinger on Twitter:

Over his career, Millsap has been a productive scoring forward, earning four bids to the NBA All-Star team. Now, at 36-years-old, the Lousiana Tech product is a different player, but he’s still shown the ability to knock down a 3-pointer and rebound in the paint.

During the 2020-21 campaign, Millsap played in 56 games, averaging nine points on 47.6% shooting from the floor with 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 20.8 minutes per contest.

As James Wiseman and Jonathan Kuminga develop in Golden State, Millsap could bring a consistent level of scoring off the bench behind Draymond Green in Steve Kerr’s frontcourt rotation.

While the Warriors still have the full $5.9 million taxpayer midlevel exception available to spend, However, with the free agency window winding down, the Warriors could explore more creative routes to bring Millsap to the Bay Area.
