In a base salary last offseason to go shooting net Paul milsap, but are not under coach Nash’s reuse, since January 14, after the game against the thunder, Paul milsap have not on behalf of the team to play a game, so far, he only played 24 games for the nets, plunged to 11.3 minutes of playing time,He averaged 3.4 points and 3.7 rebounds and shot a career-low 37.6 percent from the field.Leaving the Nets at the trade deadline seems a sure thing.According to NBA reporter Jake Fischer, the Lakers will pursue Millsap if he is bought out.The purple and gold, lacking in the interior, seem to have a special liking for the Nets’ interior, but after really coming to the Lakers, also did not get too much reuse.The most typical example is the Jordan, in the nets last season while in was abandoned after, but somehow he can still win on the accounting data is averaging 7.5 points and 7.5 rebounds, the results at the end of the season to join zijin corps, small Jordan because of their weak defense, has been completely abandoned in the near future, averaging only 4.3 points and 5.6 rebounds.The lakers have been exploring the possibility of trading him recently, but he’s a negative asset and no team seems willing to pick up the slack.Also for Millsap, even if it is true to join the Purple and gold later, I am afraid it will be the “next small Jordan” tragedy.Millsap, 36 years old, is only 2.01 meters tall, in terms of height is a disadvantage, plus the increase of age, mobility has also appeared a significant decline, in fact, during the last season with the Nuggets, he was tired, if not for jokic’s FIG leaf, to help him in the penalty box “wiping his ass”,Millsap would have been the target of much criticism from fans.In the offseason, millsap, who didn’t know what he was up to at the time, was seeking a mid-level contract, although the Bulls were rumored to be interested in him, but the two sides of the contract disagreement, millsap did not move to Chicago.As a mini inside height than James, Paul milsap on both ends of a sharp degradation, the lakers if really want to take him on, it will definitely make it become “the second little Jordan”, become the team’s bench and a cheerleader, you know better than Howard had the best defensive player around the league, only in the team as a coolie blue-collar,Not to mention millsap, a player who has never even made the all-nba team.The lakers would rather pursue millsap, a 36-year-old veteran who averages 3.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game in the Nets, than replace Howard, who is not worth it.Howard was responsible for the lakers’ championship success in 2019-20.Howard was a barrier for the lakers inside during the regular season, and he limited Jokic in the Western Conference finals.In the ’20 offseason, however, the Lakers didn’t give Howard enough respect, and Howard stormed out.Last offseason, Howard returned to the lakers, expecting to be reassigned by Vogel, only to see his playing time erratic.So far this season, Howard has played in just 40 games, averaging 14.7 minutes per game, 5.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.7 blocks, and shooting 61.5 percent from the field and 66.7 percent from 3-point range.The lakers went a lot smaller in order to get Westbrook comfortable and open him up, and the defense dropped several notches.And Howard in order to play on the ball, even began to practice three, let a person sigh unceasingly.More than half a season later, the lakers’ problems have become apparent, with a limited ceiling around Westbrook.With an aging James and a return to the top of his game, the Lakers could do better to repeat what they did in 2019-20 and put Howard back in the fold.If we had to chase Millsap and stick to a smaller lineup, the season would have been over.
