Patty Mills’ true feeling on joining Kevin Durant, Nets

Nets, Kevin Durant, Patty Mills, Spurs

For the San Antonio Spurs, it was hard to see Patty Mills join the Brooklyn Nets especially after spending 10 seasons with them.

Mills is very popular with the Spurs organization and fanbase since his infectious enthusiasm and absolute team-first mentality are pretty much commended. His departure was surely felt by the whole organization.

However, Mills thinks it’s clearly time for him to move on as the Spurs and the guard’s timeline are very different as of now. The Spurs are clearly focusing on rebuilding while Patty wants to contend.

“I think it was an opportunity for me to turn a page in a new chapter.”

Mills is also very excited to play for the Nets since he will have a chance to play with one of the best players to ever lace it up in Kevin Durant. He also adds how big of a factor KD and the others were in persuading him to join the Nets.

“The conversation that I had with Kevin [Durant] was so pure and so genuine, being able to understand that he’s such a pure hooper.”

“The familiar faces around the organization were very comfortable, especially for my wife.”

Everyone in the Nets organization seems to be excited in having Mills since he is the type of player who can contribute right away. He also provides the team with another veteran voice in the locker room.

Patty Mills can score in bunches as he did with the Australian National Team. He also added that in Brooklyn, he feels like he can be himself again.

The newly signed Nets guard will look to help Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden in winning it all next season.
