Patty Mills has agreed to a two-year, $12M contract with the Brooklyn Nets, per ESPN Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Mills spent a decade with the San Antonio Spurs. He now becomes the last player who was part of their 2014 title team to depart from the organization.

He also becomes the fourth member of last year’s roster to sign with a new club, including Trey Lyles (Detroit Pistons), Gorgui Dieng (Atlanta Hawks), and Rudy Gay (Utah Jazz).

The undersized sharpshooter exits with the seventh-most games played, second-most three-pointers made, and the second-most points scored off the bench in franchise history.

Patty was the longest-tenured active Spur before this signing. That designation now belongs to Dejounte Murray, who San Antonio drafted 29th overall in 2016.

Mills represented the Silver and Black to perfection, serving as a role model for younger players while always finding the time to give back to the local community.

The Australian floor general averaged 10.8 points and 2.4 assists per game last season and should have an opportunity to compete for an NBA championship as Brooklyn’s sixth man.
