NBA RUMORS: Patty Mills

Patty Mills

Per the New York Post, the New York Knicks are interested in San Antonio Spurs free agent point guard Patty Mills.

The Knicks will look to use their mini mid-level exception to obtain a free-agent starting point guard and one may have emerged out of the Finals massacre of Miami in Spurs backup Patty Mills.According to a source, Mills, unique because of his indigenous Australian heritage, would be intrigued by the idea of playing in New York and increasing his role from Tony Parker’s backup to a more marquee role.“New York is definitely a city Mills would want to play in,” the source said. “He has that personality.”

Mills averaged 10.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.8 assists this season, shooting 46 percent from the field and 43 percent from beyond the paint.
