The deal is reported to be a three-year deal with a player option for the fourth.

With the opportunity to seek a higher wage at rival NBA clubs, the opportunity Mills has received in San Antonio along with the organisational culture was likely a big part of Mills' decision.

Mills averaged 9.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 21.9 minutes a night, during his last season with the Spurs and will once again look to provide a scoring punch off the bench as the Spurs compete in an extremely competitive Western Conference.
