Even though he is expected to miss seven months due to rotator cuff surgery the San Antonio Spurs are bringing back guard Patty Mills.

Mills was one of the keys to the Spurs post season run and he is being rewarded with a new three-year deal that will keep him on their bench.

The Spurs will pay Mills $12 million over the course of the deal.

Last season, Mills averaged 10.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game while sinking 42.5 percent of his three-pointers.
