Paul Millsap (born February 10, 1985) is an American professional basketball player who plays for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association (NBA). As a 6'8', 253 pound power forward from Louisiana Tech University, Millsap was selected by the Jazz in the second round (47th overall) of the 2006 NBA Draft. His game was initially compared to that of Udonis Haslem. He was an early entrant to the draft as a junior. He is the only player in NCAA basketball history to lead the nation in rebounding for three consecutive years. In late 2006, some sports journalists were referring to Millsap as a potential Rookie of the Year candidate, an award not traditionally given to players taken so late in the draft. Though the award would ultimately go to Brandon Roy, Millsap had a strong first season, leading all rookies with six double-doubles.
