Lots of offseason turnover, but still another playoff appearance for the Spurs

Patty Mills scored 20 points along with three rebounds, four assists and four treys in 24 minutes in Australia's 70-90 loss to Canada in Friday's World Cup exhibition game.
Mills lead Australia in scoring in their first World Cup exhibition game. With Dejounte Murray returning this coming season from injury and Derrick White's rise, Mills is only a deep-league player at best in 2019-20. Fellow countryman Joe Ingles scored 11 points, six rebounds, two assists and a steal.

Patty Mills put up four points, three rebounds, five assists and one turnover on 1-of-5 shooting in 19 minutes in a 105-94 win over the Mavs on Wednesday.
Mills went 0-of-2 from behind the arc tonight and didn't really finish the season off on a high note. Mills had a pretty good overall season, shooting 39.6 percent from the 3-point line which is better than the 37.2 percent he shot last season. He only started in one game this season and barely finished inside the top-200 in both 8 and 9-cat leagues. Mills shouldn't be looked at as anything other than a deep-league shooting specialist going into next season.

Patty Mills went off on Wednesday for 17 points and six assists on 6-of-13 shooting and 5-of-9 shooting from deep in a loss to the Heat.
He is a deep-league shooting specialist, but he will have random good performances like this one so he can be enticing to own in deeper leagues. However, you should not rush to pick him up as he still only holds appeal as a shooter.

Patty Mills played well vs. the Bucks to close out the week on Sunday and delivered 16 points (four 3s) on 5-of-10 shooting with two rebounds and four dimes.
Bryn Forbes was off his game tonight with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with six rebounds and two triples. Mills has been hit or miss lately, so he's more suited as either a streamer for threes and some dimes or a hold in very deep leagues.

Bryn Forbes (right calf contusion) is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Thunder.
Forbes was forced to leave Wednesday’s game with the calf bruise and if he can’t go, Patty Mills will pick up the slack.

Derrick White scored seven points to go with four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 20 minutes during Friday’s road loss to the Raptors.
This was White’s first game back after missing five contests to right heel soreness. He’ll be on a minutes restriction as he gets back into game shape but should be owned in most formats. Patty Mills added 15 points, a trey and four assists in 28 minutes.

Derrick White (right heel soreness) will play on Friday vs. the Raptors but will have a minutes restriction.
Make sure White isn’t on any waivers as he was playing well prior to his injury. His return takes some of the shine off Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills.

Patty Mills scored a season-high 22 points Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies, including six treys, in 27 minutes off the bench.
Mills is a great three-point streamer since he often adds a decent amount of assists, especially right now with Derrick White out.

Patty Mills started on Wednesday and scored 16 points with four assists and four triples on 6-of-10 shooting in a loss to the Warriors.
Marco Bellinelli was also moved into the starting lineup and scored nine points on 3-of-9 shooting in 25 minutes. Both guys are deep-league shooting specialists, but Mills offers more appeal for his playmaking abilities. They are potential DFS streams when they start, but they are not standard league options when everyone is fully healthy.

Patty Mills came off the bench on Thursday and scored 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting with two triples, four rebounds and five assists.
Mills outplayed Derrick White (zero points, two rebounds and one assist) in a huge way. We still like White's long-term value as he's a stat sheet stuffer, but tonight it was Mills who took over. It should also be noted that White is dealing with plantar fascia.

Patty Mills started the second half for Derrick White (plantar fascia) in Wednesday's 88-95 loss to the Heat and posted 20 points on 8-of-22 shooting, with four rebounds and four 3-pointers.
The Heat, well Hassan Whiteside, declared the paint as "No Man's Land" so Mills used his outside shooting to contribute for the Spurs. He should see an eventual decline in production when the other Spurs players return to full strength. Until then, ride Mills while he's productive.

Patty Mills scored 16 points with three rebounds and three assists in a loss to the Magic on Sunday.
The starting point guard, Bryn Forbes, had 13 points and hit a confident 3-pointer down the stretch, but missed some key shots that could have kept the game within reach. Neither of them are good options to own in fantasy as DeMar DeRozan is getting enough usage to lead the team in assists as well as scoring. However, Forbes is the preferable option of the two as he currently holds top-130 value to Mills’ top-200.

Patty Mills scored 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including four treys) with eight rebounds and seven assists in 29 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Pelicans.
Mills hasn't done much with the absences around him but he's typically a low-end play in 14-16 team leagues.

Patty Mills made just 4-of-11 from the floor and 1-of-5 from deep for nine points on Saturday and added three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.
It was an off night for Mills but owners shouldn't be expecting much outside of 3-pointers anyway, so getting the block and steal are a bonus. There are better options out there in most leagues.
