Mills opts for free agency
POSTED Jun 28, 2:31 AM ET
P. Mills | San Antonio
To no surprise, the San Antonio Express-News reports the deadline date for Patrick Mills to exercise his 2012-13 player option has passed. He will enter the market on July 1 as a restricted free agent, if the San Antonio Spurs tender him a qualifying offer by Saturday -- June 30.
Mills was set to make the minimum next season -- $885,120 --- and he will earn an additional $200,000 if he receives and signs the qualifying offer. Mills, as a Non Bird free agent, may sign sign a contract above the qualifying amount, but it won't be for much more.
Mills will provide depth at point guard next season behind Tony Parker and Gary Neal, if he is re-signed.
