After Orlando made an aggressive offer, Paul Millsap decided to return to the Hawks on a three-year, $58 million deal. Millsap is coming off of another consistently good season in which he averaged over 16 points and more than seven rebounds per game. The Hawks were starting to see their 60-win team from last season slip away. With DeMarre Carroll signing with Toronto earlier in the day and the offer being made to Millsap, Atlanta had reason to worry, but in the end Millsap decided to return to the Hawks.

Millsap was a part of a improbable season for Atlanta where they ended up as the number one seed in the Eastern Conference before getting swept in the Conference Finals to Cleveland. The Hawks will need to find a way to replace the production by Carroll, but resigning Millsap was a top priority to keep their front court intact. With both Millsap and Horford back in Atlanta, the Hawks need to focus their attention on the wing position with Carroll gone and Kyle Korver recovering from an injury.
