    Default Patty Mills?

    Hey everybody! so this is my first post ever on rr but love the site!

    Now that we have a need for another guard off the bench with barbosa gone I was just wondering what the general thoughts were on signing someone like Patty Mills. Being from Australia I've kept an eye on his game, both with the blazers and for the national team, and I think he could be a really great spark player off the bench for the raps.
    Personally i feel that his presence could help push bayless to another level, as he might see mills as a legitimate threat to take his backup spot. At the very least Mills is better than forbes. And he's not a headcase, which is always a good thing.

    I'm not sure what his situation is with the nba at the moment. I think his rights are still held by the blazers, so this could all be a moot point. But i just wanted to get your thoughts on the guy!

    Welcome to the Republic.

    As for Mills, he is a RFA and he can only sign with Portland until July 1st.

    He is a non-issue for this year as the Raps can't sign him anyways and Portland can't trade him.

    Why can't we sign him because he is RFA with Portland?

    And he's signing in Turkey. Great teammate though, from all I've read about him that quality alone could have been of value for this year's blazers.

    It is just the rules of the collective bargaining agreement - it is what it is.

    IMO Patrick Mills is the last thing this team needs. With Barbosa gone I think our first priority is to get a solid bench 2 guard(unless we shift Forbes down to the 2 or up if were talking of him playing pg) and Patrick mills couldnt fill that spot at six feet being unable to drive and can only shoot from deep. Our priorities after that imo should be a rental at the 5 for the season so Amir can go back to playing 4 and we don't have Aaron Gray starting. I just dont see Mills filling that hole even if we could get him
