Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap is a nice trade chip, but according to one report, he’s no longer available.
Millsap reportedly has been available on and off since the summer, as the Hawks decide whether to rebuild of carry on as is.
After trading Kyle Korver to Cleveland last week for Mike Dunleavy, Mo Williams, cash and a draft pick (report), it appears the Hawks will stand pat.
That’s the word from Yahoo Sports, which reported the Hawks have pulled Millsap off the market.
Sources: Atlanta GM Wes Wilcox has started informing teams today that Paul Millsap is no longer on the trade market.

Millsap, 31, enters free agency at season’s end. Because of that, it is believed the Hawks did not receive the type of package or player they sought in return.
There is also the possibility that Millsap could be placed back on the market prior to the trading deadline in late February, sources told Pro Basketball Digest.
