Report: Knicks interested in free agent Spur Patty Mills
Diminutive point guard Patty Mills could garner the mid-level exception from New York.
The Knicks will look to use their mini mid-level exception to obtain a free-agent starting point guard and one may have emerged out of the Finals massacre of Miami in Spurs backup Patty Mills. According to a source, Mills, unique because of his indigenous Australian heritage, would be intrigued by the idea of playing in New York and increasing his role from Tony Parker’s backup to a more marquee role. “New York is definitely a city Mills would want to play in,’’ the source said. “He has that personality.’’
Mills averaged 10.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists this season, shooting 46 percent from the field and 43 percent from three. He shot 57 percent from three in the Finals.
The Knicks don't have much wiggle room in free agency, if Carmelo Anthony re-signs with the team after opting out. They need point guard help. But Mills is just 6 feet, and while he played extremely well for the Spurs in their championship run, he had few responsibilities. He basically had to defend and shoot. That's it.
Is that going to be worth the mid-level? Maybe. Mills is fearless and a good teammate. But the Knicks need to be careful with what they do and not get ahead of themselves.
