ATLANTA - As fans of the Atlanta Hawks prepare for a very different team from the one that registered 60 wins just two seasons ago, Paul Millsap took to Instagram to say goodbye and thank you to Atlanta.
Millsap is involved in a three-team trade that will send him to the Denver Nuggets on a reported 3-year and $90 million contract.
Tried to find the words to better help explain how much the fans and the city of Atlanta has meant to me but words can not explain it. From an average Joe to a 4 time All ⭐️. Atlanta I could not have done it without you. Thank you for an amazing 4 years! Thank you for embrace me and my family and for always having my back. I will always hold a special place in my heart for you. #truetoatlanta #anchormanout #untilnexttime
In part of the post, Millsap says:
Thank you for embrace me and my family and for always having my back. I will always hold a special place in my heart for you.
The Atlanta Hawks are receiving Jamal Crawford, Diamond Stone and the Clippers 2018 1st round draft pick in the trade. Crawford is expected to be bought out.
Millsap averaged 17.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game during his career with the Hawks. He helped the team reach the Eastern Conference Finals in 2015.
