HoopsHype Patrick Mills rumors

March 22, 2012 Updates

Like Spurs rookie Cory Joseph before him, Mills must jump through a series of immigration hoops to be eligible to work in the United States. Joseph, a Canadian, missed the first eight days of training camp in December working to obtain a work visa. “Signing a contract is the first step in the process,” Goodwin said.

Mills’ deal with the Spurs, believed to be good for two years, is contingent on him clearing all legal hurdles. Mills is already listed on the Spurs roster at NBA.com, but cannot participate in team activities until his visa issue is settled. Though there is no firm timetable for that happening, his agent is hoping for sooner rather than later. “Hopefully it can be expedited,” Goodwin said. “It shouldn’t be longer than a week.” San Antonio Express-News

But it was still a scary situation — particularly with a demanding stretch of four games in five nights approaching. That’s where the scoresheet comes in and an interesting listing among the inactives buried deeply on the box score. Two names were listed: Bonner and Mills. Matt Bonner was out for the night with back spasms. Considering they don’t have a Mills on their roster, could it be an indication of an upcoming roster move? Or one that was already made?
