Earlier this week Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Spurs still intended to sign Australian guard Patty Mills and that the deal wasn’t final because he was having visa issues. Now MySA is reporting that Mills is still having visa issues but that the deal is in place. Goodwin told the Express News that now that the process should move much faster now that an agreement has been reached.
“It shouldn’t be too much longer,” agent Aaron Goodwin told the Express-News. “There is a deal in principle. He just has to get a visa.”
Goodwin added Mills should be in San Antonio no later than a week from now. Hopefully Mills is in uniform before that. Last night Tony Parker left the game against Minnesota earlier because of some hamstring discomfort. His status for Friday’s game against Dallas still isn’t known, but the Spurs start their first back to back to back of the season Friday. Then they get a day off to travel to Phoenix, where they then start a back to back with the Suns and Kings. Hopefully Mills will be around for at least the back to back in Phoenix and Sacramento.
The Spurs are still targeting recently bought out forward Boris Diaw. The earliest he can sign with the Spurs or any other team is Friday.
