Nuggets exit interview: Injuries aside, veteran Paul Millsap makes strong case in contract year

EDITOR’S NOTE: Part of a series of Nuggets player evaluations for the 2019-20 regular season, which would have concluded April 14. Evaluations done so far: Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Will Barton.

Nuggets veteran Paul Millsap has always been a student of fundamentals.

Now 35 and in the final year of his $90 million contract, his rebounding and defense continue to be staples of Denver’s identity. This past summer, he even stole a page from the new school of basketball.

Millsap reduced his heavy lifting and placed an increased emphasis on biomechanics — the study of structure, function and the motion of muscles.
