Sixers expected to pursue Patty Mills in free agency

Add Patty Mills to the growing list of players that the Philadelphia 76ers are expected to pursue this offseason.

According to a source with team knowledge, the Sixers will look into acquiring the San Antonio Spurs guard on the open market.

Mills’ connection to the Sixers is obvious, as he spent two years under Sixers current coach Brett Brown when he was serving as an assistant with the Spurs, and the two also have a shared history with the Australian National team. Brown has publicly stated his affinity for Mills several times.

On the court, Mills would make a logical addition as well, as his ability to play both on and off the ball as a guard could complement Ben Simmons – and the Sixers young big men – well.

Mills, 28, will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and thus free to sign with any team. He averaged 9.5 points, 3.5 assists, and 1.8 rebounds in 21.9 minutes of action per game for the Spurs during the 2016-17 season.
