Paul Millsap wooed by Nuggets — and Broncos, too

A team of top-level Nuggets representatives visited Atlanta on Saturday, zeroing in on what, according to The Denver Post, would be one of the most high-profile free-agent acquisitions in franchise history: power forward Paul Millsap.

The coveted 6-8 forward decided Tuesday to leave the Jazz after Cheap Custom NFL Jerseys seven years and sign with the Celtics. His new contract is a four-year deal worth $128 million, according to the Vertical.

“This was a life-changing decision for me and my family, and Cheap NFL Jerseys Usa something we took really seriously,” Hayward wrote at The Players’ Tribune. “And from the very start of this process, one thing stood out as important: I knew that I wanted the fans and the organizations to hear my decision directly from me.”

Samuel’s size (5-11, 196 pounds) and quickness suggest he’ll see heavy slot duty as a rookie. But the Panthers can also benefit from his ability to line up and stretch the field outside. With his hybrid rushing skills, he also can cause matchup Cheap Nike Eagles Jerseys nightmares when lining up in the backfield along with McCaffrey.
