Athlete Biography

Patty Mills will play in his third straight Olympic Games in Rio. The 27-year-old outshone a host of global superstars to lead the scoring average at the London 2012 Games. Mills put up 21.2 points per match with his best performance coming against host nation Great Britain where he scored 39.

The Melburnian played his college days at St Mary’s before being taken as the 55th selection by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2009 NBA draft. He signed with his current club the San Antonio Spurs in 2011 and has since been a key part of the side’s strong playoff performances in recent years.

Alongside Andrew Bogut, Luc Longley, Aron Baynes, Andrew Gaze and Matt Dellavedova, Mills is one of only six Australians with an NBA Championship to his name. Mills was a part of the Spurs team that won the 2014 NBA Finals after defeating the Miami Heat 4-1 in the best of seven series including a playoff high 17-point performance in the series clinching match.

He helped the Spurs make history in the 2015-16 season by becoming the first team to win 40 of their 41 home matches throughout the regular season. Mills played 81 of the 82 regular season matches for the Spurs where he averaged 8.5 points and 2.8 assists.

Mills scored 26 points, had 9 rebounds and 8 assists across the two match Oceania Championship series where Australia qualified for the Rio 2016 Games.
