Patty Mills to Spurs - confirmed yet?

Can't find anything on the spurs site mentioning Patty Mills, does this mean the move is unconfirmed? Or will it take a day or two?

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Portland still haven't released Patty's rights yet. And now the Spurs are interested in Derek Fisher as he's soon to be a free agent.

Well a few teams have shown interest in Fish, rumors are the Thunder specifically.

still nothing on the spurs website. Me thinks a D-League affiliate may be the team he ends up with???

Nothing is there because he's still contracted to the Blazers.. They haven't released him yet.

Mike Tokito: Just to clarify on Patty Mills ... Spurs seem to be hesitating on him because Derek Fisher is now available. Perfectly reasonable. 59 minutes ago

Spurs are wanting fisher now and want him first, if fisher signs with houston or somewhere else, they will go for patty however i know houston were in serious negotiations with patty. Just want to see him signed sealed and delivered and playing some good minutes. Might only play 10 mins a game at spurs but think he would be a better player being around parker and pop.

I'm by no means a Patty Mills hater, in fact I am a massive fan. But there is still nothing about him on the spurs website. I would consider all other press just rumours. Until the spurs anounce it, I'm calling it a rumour.

It's more than a rumour, howdy. The fact that the Spurs passed on Fisher means that they are serious.

The Spurs signing of Patty Mills is being delayed due to government work visa issues according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Wojnarowski also writes that the Spurs have "no plans" to talk to Derek Fisher, so it appears the team is confident that Mills will ultimately be signed. He'll serve as a backup behind Tony Parker once he comes into the fold.

INACTIVE
Timberwolves: Pekovic, Rubio
Spurs: Bonner, Joseph, Mills

Its official he has signed, why else would he be on the inactive list?
