The Portland Trail Blazers are interested in signing the Denver Nuggets’ free agent Paul Millsap, per Kevin O’Connor of the Ringer.

Millsap is expected to draw interest from several contending teams including the Miami Heat. The Blazers traded for Robert Covington giving away Trevor Ariza.

Portland has to make a decision on Carmelo Anthony and Rodney Hood, who declined his option for next season.

With that in mind and the Robert Covington’s trade, another forward could not be a priority for now. Millsap is losing his offensive effectiveness due to age, but he remains a great defender.
