• Paul Millsap and JJ Redick are players that can help fill up open roster spots
  • Both men can still provide quality minutes off the bench for any team
  • Millsap and Redick may retire if no team picks them up

The NBA free-agent market is practically wiped out of talented names at this point.

However, two players could still be worth a look such as Paul Millsap and J.J. Redick.

Teams who still have open roster spots may consider getting either player. But the thing here is that Millsap and Redick may have to settle for veteran minimum deals.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors are two NBA teams who still have open roster spots. However, both are also pressed financially.

At this point in their careers, it would be foolish to think that either of them can get better deals. Outside their ages, Millsap and Redick can still bring a lot to a team even if they come off the bench.

Unless something official comes out, both may find themselves without a team this coming 2021-22 NBA season. As far as hooking up with a team in the coming months, such holds no promise.

Millsap is coming from a down year where he had the lowest numbers in his NBA career. In 56 regular-season games, the 6-foot-7 forward averaged 9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 20.8 minutes of playing time with the Denver Nuggets.

If he is unable to sign with any team when the coming NBA season starts, there is a chance he could get one in the midseason.

In the eyes of pundits, that could work to his advantage as Millsap allows his body to recover and join a team where he could be of use.

Redick is someone who can still help teams if given the chance. The Lakers could add him to the fray although other teams such as the Philadelphia 76ers, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets may also consider him.

As far as the Lakers, expect additional criticism if they do sign the 6-foot-3 guard. Age has been a big issue for the franchise, and most feel they should take in young players who they can develop instead.

Like Millsap, Redick could wait until midseason to see if any team would sign him up. If nothing comes for either player, it may be time to call it an NBA career.
