Hawks' Paul Millsap to reportedly void contract at season's end

The veteran forward would have liked to have stayed in Atlanta, but the Hawks did not make a play to re-sign him.

Paul Millsap's days in Atlanta might be numbered.

According to a rare NBA report from ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter, Millsap will voidhis contract at the end of the 2016-17 season. Schefter, who was the sideline reporter for Wednesday's game between the Hawks and Wizards, added that Millsap would like to remain in Atlanta.

Millsap, who is set to earn $21.4 million next season, is reportedly seeking a max five-year, $207 million deal from the Hawks. The 6-8 forward would be open to taking a four-year, $154 million contract from another team, according to Schefter.

Millsap has missed the last two games for the Hawks with a knee injury and was not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.
