Report: Patty Mills, rumored Warriors target, to join Nets

Steph Curry Patty Mills

Patty Mills will not be returning to the Bay Area after all.

The 32-year-old guard (he turns 33 on Aug. 11) has agreed to a free-agent contract with the Brooklyn Nets, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday.

The Warriors were interested in signing Mills, who played two seasons of college basketball at Saint Mary's from 2007 to 2009.

The 12-year veteran averaged 10.8 points and 2.4 assists over 68 games last season with the San Antonio Spurs, while shooting 37.5 percent from deep (on 6.3 attempts).

Mills has played very well against the Warriors throughout his career, as his 10.7 points per game average vs. the Dubs is his fourth-highest mark against any team in the NBA.

The Warriors -- who have added Otto Porter Jr. and Nemanja Bjelica on minimum contracts in free agency so far -- still have the $5.9 million taxpayer mid-level exception at their disposal.

And don't rule out a trade.
