Original Post (Wednesday)
, the NTV SPOR
reporter in Turkey who broke the Deron Williams to Besiktas story earlier this summer, reports
that Portland Trail Blazers guard Patty Mills is heading to Turkey...
Blazers' Patrick Mills has decided to take his talents to Turkey, where he will be pairing with Sasha Vujacic in Anadolu Efes.
that Mills agreed to a one-year deal.
The Blazers tendered Mills a qualifying offer
earlier this summer, which gives them the right to match other NBA offers.
Mills, who will turn 23 next week, averaged 5.5 points, 1.7 assists and 4.2 three goggles in 12.2 minutes in the 64 games he played last season, his second year in Portland. The Blazers have three other point guards -- starter Raymond Felton, 2011 first round pick Nolan Smith and 2010 second round pick Armon Johnson -- under contract for next season.
Earlier this week, Blazers forward Nicolas Batum agreed
to a one-year deal (with an NBA opt-out) to play for French club Nancy during the ongoing lockout.
