San Antonio Spurs
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mills continued his solid play off the bench in his eighth season for the Spurs. The Australian guard averaged 9.9 points, 3.0 assists and a career-high 2.2 rebounds across 23.3 minutes. He appeared in 80 contests but made just one start. Mills drained 1.9 threes per tilt for the second straight season and has averaged a healthy 1.7 triples over the last six seasons. Entering his 11th NBA season, Mills' value lies primarily in his three-point shooting, which he's converted at a solid 39.1 percent clip in his career. Mills' playing time could take a step back in 2019-20 with Dejounte Murray expected to be back after suffering a torn ACL that forced him to miss all of last season. Derrick White showed a lot of upside and is expected to start in the backcourt with Murray. Mills is a late-round target in deep leagues, but he doesn't need to be rostered in standard formats.

College/International Summary

Additionally, Mills led St. Mary's in points per game (18.4), steals per game (2.2) and assists per game (3.9). In his freshman year, he helped lead St. Mary's to the NCAA Tournament. Mills declared for the 2009 NBA Draft after his sophomore season at St. Mary's. He was selected in the second round (55th overall) of the draft by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Impresses off bench
GSan Antonio Spurs
March 3, 2020
Mills registered 24 points (7-13 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three steals and one assist in 23 minutes during Monday's 116-111 loss to the Pacers.
ANALYSIS
Mills remains a consistent scoring force off the bench for the Spurs, and this was the ninth time this season where he scored 20 or more points while operating as a substitute. The veteran point guard is more than capable of putting up big numbers on a nightly basis, but he has lacked consistency of late, as he has scored in double figures just twice in San Antonio's last five outings while shooting an ugly 33.3 percent from the field during that span.

2018

Mills is one of the NBA's true iron men. In 2018-19, he appeared in 82 games for the second season in a row. In fact, he has missed only three games over his last four campaigns. Mills started one game, but he was one of the Spurs' key pieces off the bench. He essentially replicated his 2017-18 campaign last season. For the second year in a row, he averaged 3.4 made field goals per game and 1.9 made three-pointers. The Australian also averaged 9.9 points after averaging 10.0 points the year prior. Mills came up big by making six threes and scoring 22 points in a 108-107 win over the Grizzlies on Feb. 12. He racked up eight assists twice during the campaign. In the playoffs he averaged 5.3 points per contest over seven games off the bench.

2009
With Tony Parker getting older and also playing in just 55 games due to injury, Mills saw his most extensive action since joining the NBA in 2009. He wound up starting 36-of-82 games, while averaging a career-high 25.7 minutes. That translated to 10.0 points, 2.8 assists and 1.9 rebounds, though it was his three-point shooting that kept him on the radar in Fantasy leagues. Mills recorded 1.9 three-pointers per game and hit at a 37.2 percent clip. Still, the Spurs turned to promising rookie Dejounte Murray to work with the top unit over the final few months of the season, which resulted in Mills becoming a fixture in the second unit. San Antonio has clearly committed to Murray as the point guard of the future, so Mills is set for backup duties once again heading into 2018-19. He'll provide a reliable scorer and a ball-handler with the reserves, though he's unlikely to see much more court time than the 25.7 minutes he averaged a year prior, even with Parker signing elsewhere in free agency. As a result, Mills will simply be a three-point specialist for those in deeper leagues looking for a boost in that category.
Mills had yet another solid campaign backing up Tony Parker at point guard this past season, playing in 80 games and posting averages of 9.5 points, 1.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 three-pointers across 21.9 minutes. The 9.5 points marked his best scoring average since the 2013-14 season and he shot 44 percent from the field and 41.4 percent from the the three-point line, both of which were improvements from the previous year. Mills' reliability as a reserve point guard netted him a four-year, $50 million contract extension this offseason, and his role should be on the rise moving forward. The Spurs are slated to be without Tony Parker through at least January because of a ruptured quadriceps, which leaves Mills with the most experience at the position. He'll be the favorite to open the season as the starter, but should receive plenty of competition from impressive second-year player Dejounte Murray. The two could end up taking a committee approach, although that should be sorted out during training camp. Either way, Mills' value should be on the rise.
Shoulder surgery sidelined Mills for the first 31 games of the season in 2014-15, though he finished the next 51 games of the season relatively healthy. His production dipped from previous years, most likely due to the aftermath from the recovery of his shoulder procedure. Mills averaged 6.9 points, 1.2 three-pointers, 1.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 0.5 steals in 16 minutes per game. From an efficiency standpoint, Mills had the worst season of his career in 2014-15, shooting 38 percent from the field, 34 percent from three, and 83 percent from the free-throw line. Healthy, Mills will most likely be the primary backup to Tony Parker, though he'll get some competition from Ray McCallum and Jimmer Fredette. With Parker aging and the Spurs owning one of the deepest teams in the league, Mills could see increased action at the lead guard spot should coach Gregg Popovich decide to reduce Parker's minutes to fewer than the 29 per game that he played last season. Mills is a small shoot-first guard who is probably best in a bench role that affords him the luxury of being able to launch long-range shots without leaving the Spurs' core out of the equation. We've seen Popovich use his third-string guards to fill in at starter when Parker sits so that the rest of the rotations can remain intact, and that makes Mills' bench roll pretty much only a bench role with little hope for growth.
Patty Mills was a key piece in the Spurs' championship run last season. Entering his sixth campaign, Mills will be recovering from rotator cuff surgery on his right shoulder which is expected to sideline him until February. Last season, Mills averaged 10.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.1 blocks, and 1.7 three-pointers in 19 minutes per game through 81 games. He shot 46 percent from the field on 82 attempts per game and 89 percent from the line on 1.0 attempts per game. Mills signed a free-agent deal with the Spurs this offseason, despite the offseason surgery and was looming as a late-round fantasy sleeper. The injury pretty much rules Mills out of all discussion in standard leagues in drafts, but he still retains value in dynasty and deeper league formats. Mills finished last season seventh in three-point percentage, hitting 42 percent of his shots from deep, and also finished ninth in turnover percentage, turning the ball over just eight percent of the time. When Mills returns and has shaken off the rust, he should regain his role as the Spurs' backup point guard and go-to scorer on the second unit.
Patty is giving Cory Joseph a run for his money in the race for the backup job in camp, impressing with his scoring abilities. Even if he wins the role, Mills should only see limited touches in the second team offense with options such as Ginobili, Belinelli and Diaw on the floor.
Mills finished the 2011-12 season with the Spurs after playing in China during the lockout. He has some scoring ability - he posted back-to-back 30-point games in the last two contests of the year - and could carve out a decent-sized role as primary backup to Tony Parker.
A second-round selection in this year's draft, Mills suffered a broken foot shortly after the draft and has been sidelined since. The Blazers haven't offered Mills a contract yet, but he could be with the team once he returns to the court in late November.
