Paul Millsap signs 3-year, $90 million deal with Denver Nuggets

Paul Millsap has signed a three-year, $90 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, a person with knowledge of the situation has confirmed to The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract cannot be signed until Thursday.

The 32-year-old Millsap gives the young Nuggets a proven, defensive-minded veteran who should fit perfectly with coach Michael Malone and budding star Nikola Jokic. Millsap is a four-time All-Star who averaged a career-high 18.1 points last season with the Atlanta Hawks to go with 7.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists.

Yahoo! Sports first reported the agreement.
