Steve Nash did not expect to have to push Paul Millsap out | NBA

“An unfortunate situation. » That’s Steve Nash’s description of the Nets’ inconclusive marriage to Paul Millsap. The latter, who hardly plays anymore, has agreed to end his short experience in New York to find playing time elsewhere.

“Paul was great in terms of his state of mind and how to behave as a good teammate, he accepted a limited role which was difficult for him. It’s not what I initially expected, but it’s rarely what you expect. We will therefore try to find a solution, a positive solution, for Paul “, details the coach.

After four seasons in Denver, the 36-year-old signed with the Nets last September for a season at minimum wage ($2.6 million). Upon his arrival, we imagined him eventually occupying the starting position in position 4. But other interiors finally passed him: LaMarcus Aldridge, Nic Claxton, Blake Griffin and even the young Day’Ron Sharpe.

“We add it all up and we end up with five pivots”, calcule Steve Nash. “It makes things difficult. For different reasons and at different times of the season, you press different buttons. And while he had a few chances, he didn’t have many, which is unfortunate for Paul, I realize. It is a difficult situation that we had not necessarily foreseen. But here we are. »

The former Jazz and Hawks player should thus remain at 24 games played, with a minimal contribution (3 points and 4 rebounds in 11 minutes), before finding a new base.
