    Why?
    He might be thrilled to get Millsap back....

    Problem is if/when he opts out after this season. So maybe it isn't worth giving up a starter for a rental.

    Codman knows Ashley and Lauren (wives of Jason Smith and NenĂª)... and he's mentioned/referenced both Millsap and Korver before...

    Because as much as everyone hates Anderson on Clutchfans (for some reason), he makes Harden's life much easier. Even when Anderson's shot is off he spreads the court like no other allowing Harden to create.

    Millsap may be better than Anderson but he can't do the things that Anderson can do passively.

    I like Millsap but honestly other teams have better trade pieces to acquire him.

    I would like Korver and Millsap. It would need to be for non rotational guys + picks & maybe Nene.
    Millsap is the main reason we lost to the Hawks earlier this year.

    I like what we have at the 4. We need another 7 footer for the playoffs.

    We need someone that can defend the likes of Marc Gasol, LMA, Blake Griffin. Don't think he fits that role. Pass.

    milsap would be great - but i fear it would cost too much and screw our chemistry

    and kyle korver possibly? playoff contenders should take note.

    Who do you think can defend those guys? You realize Millsap was voted the second best defender of NBA PF's in the world just 7 months ago? I feel like there are not more than 3-4 players who can defend all 3 guys you listed better than Millsap. Maybe Gasol would be a stretch to defend, but Millsap was playing C most of the time when he won this award.

    Can he veto trades? Would increase chances of us getting him probably.

    The NBA is a ridiculous sport where less than 5 ever year have a shot of winning a title. Ppl falling head over heels for any board line All-Star.

    I think for a guy like Millsap, D'Antoni and Morey wouldn't care much about position and size. Millsap is great at basketball and that's what matters for the most part. D'Antoni, for one, never cared about size or position all that much.

    But Millsap makes $20M so it's hard to acquire him without giving up one or more main rotation pieces and I'm not sure they want to sacrifice, say, Ryan Anderson for him.

    Korver and Sefolosha are two much cheaper contracts. Would be interesting to add an elite shooter like Korver to this team. We can have 48 minutes of insane spacing every game.

    i disagree - if anything - the addition of ryno and gordon to the rockets show the value of the right player in the right situation.

    korver's shooting and milsap's all around hu$tle would improve pretty much any/every roster in the league (at the right price).

    This I agree with.

    Milsap too expensive to acquire but I would be all about getting Korver or sefalosha
