Patty Mills Rumors
Anthony Tolliver, his Pistons teammate from 2016 to 2018: We’re actually business partners now. I brought him in on a deal that I was doing called BigBlanket.com, and of course, he’s the perfect spokesperson for it. We had a photo shoot at my house actually earlier this year, and, yeah, he’s literally the perfect person for that. Patty Mills, his Spurs teammate for the 2015-16 season: (I introduced him to) the word Bala, which means brother in my language. I played against him whenever it was, the under-19 world championships, that was probably 2006 or so. I’ve kinda known him playing international at the junior level, and seeing him around.
Calling the devastating brush fires raging across Australia, “a national crisis that is hard to comprehend,” Spurs guard Patty Mills said Monday he is teaming with other Aussies in the NBA to raise awareness of the staggering toll the disaster has had on their homeland. “Us Australian boys have come together and are working on something to make the right impact and will make the right sense, something that can be long lasting,” Mills said.
Patty Mills, DeMar DeRozan and Dejounte Murray journeyed to Austin on Friday for the season opener of the Spurs’ G League team, which includes 2019 draft picks Luka Samanic, Keldon Johnson and Quinndary Weatherspoon. “I think it was important for us to go up there and show our support because we do have a core group of young guys now who are all going through that process together,” Mills said Saturday after the Spurs 135-115 loss to Boston. “The more they can see us supporting them, the more they can settle into that process and environment to get the most out of it. “And we had fun, us three hanging out there and supporting them.”
Tom Orsborn: Patty Mills on the preseason’s biggest surprise: “Really pleased with how Trey Lyles has been able to slide into the system so well so early. He’s a player who can learn on the fly, adjust on the fly and his type of game suits the system we’ve had for so long. Impressive.” #Spurs
