Last summer, Millsap was regarded as one of the best value signings in the league when he went to the Hawks for two years and $19 million. He averaged 17.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in 74 games for an injury-riddled Hawks team that held on to make the 8-seed in the East. Prior to a bevy of injuries for the Hawks, they were sitting third in the East. They made quite a bit of noise in the first round of the playoffs, taking the 1-seed Indiana Pacers to seven games. They were up 3-2 in the series before dropping the last two games.

Millsap provides a solid defender and a very dangerous offensive weapon for Team USA. He can stretch the floor (35.8 percent from 3-point range last season), play inside, hit the offensive boards, and pass the ball quite well.
