Mills, 28, has been with the Spurs for six seasons. He averaged 9.5 points, a career-best 3.5 assists and 1.8 rebounds last season.

He ranked 11th in the NBA in three-point field goal percentage last season and tied Kawhi Leonard with a team-high 147 made three-pointers.

Mills averaged 10.3 points per game in last season’s playoffs while playing a playoff career-high 26 minutes per game.

He started six postseason games after Tony Parker suffered a season-ending leg injury.

Mills is a valuable member of the Spurs bench and a popular teammate in the locker room.  

Mills initially signed with San Antonio in March 2012 and was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers in 2009.
