SAN ANTONIO (July 13, 2012) – The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they have re-signed guard Patty Mills. Per club policy details of the contract were not released.

"Patty came in and impressed us from the moment he joined us last season," Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said. "He gives us some added depth at the guard position and we are excited to have him back in San Antonio."

Mills, a 6-0, 185-pound product out of St. Mary's (CA), was signed by the Spurs this past season on March 27. In 16 games (three starts), Mills averaged 10.3 points, 2.4 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 16.3 minutes. In his final two games of the regular season Mills set career-highs for points and assists. On April 25, he registered a career-best 27 points at Phoenix only to surpass that the following night in Golden State scoring 34 points and handing out a career-high 12 assists.
