Should the Hawks Trade Paul Millsap?

With Paul Millsap having a player option to enter free agency after the coming 2016-2017 season, trading Millsap is an option worth exploring. When Chris Haynes reported the Hawks and Suns had spoken about a potential Millsap trade for a draft pick package, it made sense financially, at the time, to make room for Al Horford and Dwight Howard. Even after Horford signed with Boston later that day, a trade involving Millsap still could make sense. Now, before Hawks fans lose their collective minds about shipping out the other half of their All-Star frontcourt tandem, let’s review the NBA...
