Both are having breakout seasons and both are unrestricted FA's this summer. Both of their respective teams would have a difficult time resigning them for more than a mid level exception. In Lee's case, the Knicks are way over the cap and would have to scrap the idea of luring two elite FAs in 2010. In Millsap's situation, if Carlos Boozer exercises his player option (as well he should, considering his string of nagging injuries), he'll likely only get an offer at best slightly above the mid level. Both these guys are double double 4's. They both "go after it. Does anybody think that either Millsap or Lee wouldn't be able to run a pick and roll with Rose? Does anybody think the Knicks are going placed with a tandem of Duhon and Lee?
So they're not all stars (yet), but an $7-8 million contract would be a steal. Would the Bulls be better off (especially defensively) with Stoudamire or Bosh? For the same money, we could pay two guys. Barring someone trading Dwight Howard, how else is Pax going to fill that gaping hole in the paint?
