2013-14

After having played his entire career with the Utah Jazz thus far, Millsap is taking his talents to the Atlanta Hawks in his eighth season. He had a rather sub-par season in his 2012-13 campaign, averaging just 14.6 points (49 percent from the field, 74 percent from the line), 7.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 block in 30 minutes per game. His points, percentages and rebound numbers were the lowest he'd posted over the past three years. Millsap's production may have been affected by the emergence of Derrick Favors, and perhaps as a member of the Hawks, he will be able to break out from his 30-minute ceiling as the main replacement for departed forward Josh Smith. Millsap is likely to start alongside Al Horford, who is arguably not as ball-dominant as his previous teammate Al Jefferson. Being on a team with an offense focused on fast breaks and offensive rebounds, Millsap could truly thrive as a dominant all-around fantasy contributor, given his ability to produce multiple statistics (such as three-pointers made, steals and blocks, among the typical points, rebounds and field goal percentage).

2012-13

Millsap kept chugging along in 2011-12, averaging 16.6 points and a career-high 8.8 rebounds per game. The Jazz have never regretted their decision to match Millsap’s offer sheet when they let Carlos Boozer walk in the summer of 2010. Though somewhat undersized at 6-8, Millsap is a good rebounder and very strong. He can keep up with the league’s bigger fours on defense as well. He had a career-high 1.8 steals per games last season and averages 1.0 blocks per game for his career. Health has not been an issue. He hasn’t missed more than six games in any of his six NBA seasons. Entering his prime, Millsap should be a pretty safe fantasy pick, although the Jazz do have a logjam at power forward. Looking ahead to the upcoming season, Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin will attempt to balance the need to develop Derek Favors at power forward along with giving Millsap the minutes he deserves. With Millsap entering the final year of his contract, and a replacement ready at power forward, he seems like a candidate to be traded before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in next summer. The Jazz offered him a contract extension, but Millsap rejected it, preferring to test the free-agent waters. Whether he stays in Utah or is traded, Millsap should continue to be a productive power forward.

2011-12

After being stuck on the bench behind Carlos Boozer for his first four seasons, Millsap was finally given the chance to start in 2010-11, and he didn’t disappoint. The former second-round pick out of Louisiana Tech easily posted a career-high with 17.3 points per game. Despite the increased usage, Millsap remained as efficient as ever, hitting 53.1 percent of his shots from the floor and 75.7 percent from the line while limiting his turnovers to 1.9 per game. He also provided strong play on the defensive end of the court with 1.4 steals and 0.9 blocks per game. The one area where Millsap came up a bit short was rebounding (7.6), which is surprising since that has always been considered his greatest strength. The 26-year-old is undersized (6-8, 250) for a power forward, but he uses his body well to create space and get easy buckets. With young big men Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors both vital parts of the Jazz’s rebuilding efforts, Millsap could eventually give way to a youth movement, but his expanded role should hold steady for at least one more season.

2010-11

You have to feel for Paul Millsap. He was one of the league's biggest surprises filling in for Carlos Boozer, and was all set to take over Boozer's starting spot last season. But Boozer stayed put, sticking Millsap in a bench role. Boozer is gone now, which might mean Millsap will have his moment in the spotlight… except that the Jazz acquired Al Jefferson in the offseason. Even in a limited role, Millsap has the ability to put up numbers – he averaged 11.6 points, just under seven boards and two combined blocks/steals in 2009-10 – but that's nothing compared to the regular double-doubles he posted as a starter.

2009-10

When Carlos Boozer missed 45 games with a knee injury last season, Millsap was one of the better players in the league. During 38 games as a starter, Millsap averaged 16.0 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks while shooting 54.5 percent from the field. To put that in perspective, only one other player in the NBA last season averaged double-digit rebounds and at least one steal and one block per game (Dwight Howard). Millsap clearly proved himself worthy of a starting job. However, Boozer somewhat surprisingly decided not to opt out of his contract during the offseason, so he remains the Jazz’s property. At press time, a trade does not appear to be imminent, and if Boozer somehow remains in Utah all season, Millsap will once again be relegated to the bench, where his numbers dropped to 11.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 0.8 steals over 38 games last season – still serviceable, but not even close his production when in the starting five.

2008-09

Millsap belongs with guys like David Lee and Jamario Moon in the “per-minute” hall of fame. The statistics show that he’s a highly-capable producer when given the opportunity – unfortunately, they can’t do anything about the fact that he’s fighting with Mehmet Okur, Carlos Boozer, Andrei Kirilenko and now Kosta Koufos for playing time. He’s worth a look in most drafts because of his “garbage man” skill at racking up numbers in harder-to-get categories, but he probably won’t meet his considerable fantasy potential unless one of Utah’s other frontcourt players is injured.

2007-08

Millsap was one of the more impressive rookies in the NBA last season, getting solid minutes and producing the occasional fantasy-worthy line on a Jazz team with playoff aspirations. Unfortunately, he plays the same position as Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur, which means that he does not often get enough court time to make a fantasy impact. Millsap is a strong rebounder that blocks a surprising amount of shots considering that he’s a 6-7-post player. He is worth a flyer late in most drafts because he’s only a Boozer injury away from putting up David Lee-type numbers. Boozer has missed almost 90 games over the past three seasons so Millsap getting the call isn’t exactly an unlikely scenario.
