While many expected the San Antonio Spurs to be strong suitors for the services of Derek Fisher after he recently agreed to a buyout deal with the Houston Rockets, apparently the Spurs are set on Patty Mills.
According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Spurs are just waiting on a work visa in order to sign Mills.
"San Antonio still waiting on government work visa to sign Patty Mills, sources tell Y! Sports. Spurs have no plans to talk to Derek Fisher," Wojnarowski said via his Twitter page.
While Fisher has far more experience to go with five rings, Mills seems to be the Spurs' man, and they are likely just days away to signing, signaled by Cory Joseph being sent back down to the Austin Toros.
While it i still unclear what role Mills would play with the Spurs, some San Antonio media say Mills will not serve as Tony Parker's primary backup, but instead play spot minutes behind Gary Neal.

That settles it. Mills will be sub pg for the spurs. The more important issue is, will the spurs signed another big man. Will it be Kaman, Turiaf, JJHickson and now Nocioni. The spurs I think have until Friday to decide.
mills is not just a scoring point, he can pass the ball too and there aren't that many options the spurs can choose from at this point and mills was the best option, oh yeah and hes a playmaker whether it be passing or scoring he can make plays.
Mills is a scoring point guard just like Tony, it sure was a nice change of pace having the backup pg being a distributor...
Kaman is a Hornet, Hickson a Sun, and Nocioni is a SF. The spurs should fight for Turiaf or even look at 7' Hollins
@imwithstupid At least now they can keep a pace, Neal is a better shooter than passer
