Jazz make qualifying offer to Millsap

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Jazz have made a qualifying offer to forward Paul Millsap, giving the team the right to match any other offers he receives as a restricted free agent.The Jazz had until Tuesday to make the offer and there was no doubt they would.Millsap averaged 13.5 points and 8.6 rebounds last season, playing mostly as a reserve. He stepped in when starter Carlos Boozer missed 41 games with a knee injury and had a string of 19 straight double-doubles.Although the Jazz will have the option of matching any offer in order to keep Millsap, they won’t know how much money is available until Boozer, center Mehmet Okur and forward Kyle Korver decide whether to opt out of the final year of their contracts.
