It’s been an eventful couple of days for an NBA veteran as he’s already been traded three times in 10 days.
Patty Mills, who was a key player for the San Antonio Spurs when they won their last championship in 2014, is on the move yet again. The Brooklyn Nets traded the guard to the Houston Rockets a few days ago, with the Oklahoma City Thunder subsequently stepping in to absorb his trade in exchange for draft compensation.
ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski is now reporting that the Australian has again been traded, this time to the Atlanta Hawks, in exchange for TyTy Washington, Usman Garuba, Rudy Gay, and a second-round pick.
A former second-round pick himself, Mills enjoyed a 10-year stint in San Antonio and, as mentioned above, helped them win their fifth championship nine years ago.
Mills, who signed with the Brooklyn Nets in August of 2021, played in 81 games for the team in his first season but was only afforded 40 appearances last term.
With this latest trade, the Hawks are saving $4.5 million as they’ve dealt away two bench players, as well as Gay, who triggered a $6.5 million player option this offseason.
According to Woj, this might not be the last stop for Mills as the Hawks still have to decide which direction they want to go with him.
