Mills sitting on the Pine

Looks like Mills is spending alot of DNP Coach decision alot this season. Is this is final year on his contract with the Spurs. i can see a trade with him and Blair going on, possible with someone else like a Jackson.

Looked like he was on the up towards the end of last season. You're right... those DNP's just keep acruing. From memory he has another year to run on the current contract.

Lets hope so hey, Patty definitely deserves more minutes after that great display he put on during the olympics. Looks like Pop is using Nando De Colo as the primary back up to TP, I personally hate De Colo because he keeps stealing pattys damn minutes!! He needs to find a team where he can fit the rotation better or just wait to the big 3 fossil out!

Stuff happens, a lot of games in the season/post-season. He could barely see the floor again, or finish the season playing 15-20 mins a game, who knows...

I believe Patty had rolled his ankle in practice so he's been sitting out a few games. He'll be back in rotation soon enough

Benno you hate De Colo because he is 'stealing' mills' minutes!! Popovich is one of the best coaches in the game, if De Colo is playing more minutes its because he is playing better/is better! Take the green and gold googles off

He's 6ft tall and averages more rebounds than assists. Enough said.

@Curtley: which might not be such a bad thing....if he wasn't averaging only 1 rebound a game (3.2 per 36 minutes).

Patty only gets minutes against the undersized backups eg Aaron brooks, JJ Berea ect - Pops all about defending your position and against bigger guard Stacks gets bum raped
