Teams and soon to be free agents around the NBA are beginning to set up visits for when the negotiation period officially starts on Monday. Whether it be meeting with outside free agents or those who are already on your roster, a number of meetings will be taking place as soon as 12:01 a.m. ET. One of those meetings will take place between the Utah Jazz and their free agent power forward Paul Millsap.
From Chris Haynes of Comcast SportsNet Northwest:
Utah Jazz will have a meeting in person tonight with the representatives of their free agent power forward Paul Millsap, I’m being told.

Millsap is also expected to be heavily pursued by the Boston Celtics, but the fact that he is deciding to give Utah the first crack at negotiations could mean that he is hopeful he can return. Of course, he could just be using his former team to set the market.
Last season, Millsap averaged 14.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks per game.
