The duo they were a guest on an Australian Fox Sports News show, speaking on winning the title, their experience with the Spurs, Mills learning from Tony Parker, Baynes’ future in the NBA, Team Australia’s chances at the 2014 FIBA World Cup and much more.

One of the hardest things about reporting live is your surrounding environment. Anything can happen. Rowdy fans, background noise, planes roaring overhead - it’s all part of the business. I thought Mills and Baynes were a couple of Collingwood punters. Oops. I guess the NBA championship trophy - which has been beamed around the world countless times over the years - should’ve given it away, but my mind was fixed on reporting the latest news on Nick Maxwell, Dane Swan and the ‘Pies. I can honestly say that this is the first time I’ve been punked by a bloke with a newly-minted three-year $12 million NBA contract. And I’m pretty confident in saying that I’ve never previously been photobombed with a major US sporting trophy. Melbourne Herald-Sun

Willing to wait for Patty Mills to completely recover from surgery to repair a right shoulder injury, the Spurs on Wednesday agreed to terms on a three-year contract with their valuable backup point guard.

Terms of the deal remain unknown, but two teams that had expressed interest in negotiating with Mills before his injury was disclosed believe it will begin with a salary next season that's in the $3 million-plus range.
