Report: Patty Mills signs 4-year, $50 million deal with Spurs
The Spurs were in dire need to lock down a veteran point guard, especially with the recent season-ending injury to starter Tony Parker in the second round of the playoffs.
Mills has been one of the main cogs off Gregg Popovich‘s bench, providing another shooter at the point guard position and sometimes as an off-guard spotting up in the corner.
His familiarity with San Antonio’s system and willingness to do whatever is asked of him played a great role at landing a long-term deal with the team, given the organization’s reputation for keeping culture over glamour.
The 6-foot point guard had yet another solid season with the Spurs, averaging 9.5 points, 3.5 assists, and 1.8 rebounds per game on 21.9 minutes per game off the bench.
