Paul Millsap officially signs multi-year deal with Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets have officially signed Paul Millsap to a multi-year contract, president of basketball operations Tim Connelly announced on Thursday.

The 11-year veteran agreed on a three-year, $90 million deal on July 2.

Millsap — a 6-foot-8, 246-pound forward — spent the previous four seasons with the Atlanta Hawks, where he was named an All-Star each year and helped the team to a No. 1 seed in the East in 2014-15. He averaged 18.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists last season.

He was drafted 47th overall in the 2006 NBA draft and spent his first seven seasons in Utah, averaging 12.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals in 540 games (265 starts) with the Jazz.

Millsap, 32, spent 12 years of his childhood in Denver’s Montbello community before returning to his native state of Louisiana for high school and college. At Louisiana Tech University, he became the only player in NCAA history to lead the nation in rebounding three consecutive years.

Millsap will have his introductory press conference as a member of the Nuggets at 1 p.m. Thursday at Montbello Recreation Center.
