Curry = top 10
Smoov = top 20
Durant = top 3
Millsap = top 50
Yes, the way Sloan is playing him it looks like they are preparing him to come off the bench once Okur gets back. Millsap went from 15-16FGA to only 10FGA in recent games and he's only playing around 30-31 mins instead of 38-41 earlier in the season.
The way I see it, Millsap will be a 14-15/7-8 guy for most of the season when Okur is back.
