The power forward was recently traded to Philadelphia after an uneventful stint in Brooklyn.
Before that, Millsap saw his minutes and point output dwindle while playing for the Denver Nuggets.
He has come a long way from the heyday of his career when he was putting up nearly 20 points and nine rebounds a game.
So far, it doesn’t look like his time in Philly will be much different from his last few seasons.
Paul Millsap did, indeed, get into tonight's game – just with the 76ers losing by 43 points after 3 quarters.

In his first game with the 76ers, Millsap showed some impact, scoring 9 points, 3 rebounds, and 1 assist – including two three-pointers.
However, he only entered the game when the team was down by 43 points to the Boston Celtics.
What does this mean for the future of Millsap?
Milly In Philly
Obviously, all of the attention on Philadelphia lately has been about James Harden, but Millsap is also hoping to contribute to the team.
Speaking with the press the other day, he seemed ready to help the 76ers.
“Coming here with the talent, the players, the coaching staff, and the organization, mixed with that energy and talent, it’s unbelievable,” Millsap told Liberty Ballers.
Yet it remains to be seen where he will fit in.
He’s obviously a bench player, and comfortable with that, but Philly definitely has its eye on using him.
The 76ers’ front office has had an interest in Millsap for some time, according to reports.
However, with Embiid playing so well lately and the season heating up, that means that Millsap won’t get much time on the floor at all.
