Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap is drawing interest from the Brooklyn Nets. ESPN New York (citing the New York Daily News) reports that the Nets want Millsap as their starting power forward. No word on who Brooklyn is offering, but the franchise has been trying to unload Kris Humphries and MarShon Brooks.

A deal would also potentially open up minutes in Salt Lake City for Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter.
