Already with four really solid starters in Karl-Anthony Towns, Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins and newly signed Jeff Teague, the Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly in the mix to add another All-Star.

According to Basketball Insider's Michael Scotto, the Wolves are meeting with four-time All-Star power forward Paul Millsap on Saturday. Millsap led the Atlanta Hawks with 18.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game last season.

Millsap could be the defensive big the Wolves need. He considered one of the better defensive power forwards in the league and was recognized as such by making the 2015-16 All-NBA Defensive second team.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reported late Friday that Denver and Minnesota were leading the race to sign Millsap.

Also interesting with Millsap is that he and Teague played together in Atlanta from 2013-16.

Stay tuned for updates.
