Patty Mills Rejects Participant Choice, Turns into Free Vendor

Nets guard Patty Mills declined his $6.2 million player selection for next season to become a free agent, league sources say Brian Lewis of The New York Post (Twitter link).

Mills, 33, had a solid season in his first season with Brooklyn in 2021/22, averaging 11.4 PPG, 1.9 RPG and 2.3 APG shooting .408/ .400 / .814 in 81 regular season games (48 starts, 29 MPG). He’s averaging career-high on three tries and hits, 2.8 and 7.0, respectively.

Last season was the 13th of Mills’ long NBA career, spending his first few seasons with Portland before playing 10 games with the Spurs, including an NBA championship in 2014. This veteran keeper also led the Australian national team to a Bronze Medal. at the Tokyo Olympics last summer.

While Mills isn’t as fast as he used to be, he holds a career three-point rate of 38.9% and a number that attracts a lot of interest from competitive teams. He will receive a contract of the same annual value as the one he rejected (the taxpayer’s middle class exception), but he will likely be looking for a multi-year contract to maximize your income.
