I would rather have Favors or Kanter.
Though Milsap is a great improvement over Sully or Bass.
So would I, but I don't think there is any chance they give up Favors or Kanter unless they are getting a real star in return. They are their future.
I think Millsap is the realistic target. First of all, he is a better fit, because he is a better defender than Al, and the last thing the C's need is another defensive challenged big man. But also, his contract fits in with what the C's would be trying to match with.
I just think to get Al, you would have to give up too many rotation quality players to even match his contract, and Utah might balk at taking on the longterm contracts as well, and require the C's to give up even more talent.
Millsap on the other hand, could possibly be had for a rotation player and a pick or young asset.
And I do think Millsap would be a big upgrade on this team. The problem is, with him hitting free agency this summer, would you want to pay him? And if not, how much value are you going to give up for a rental?
