Brooklyn Nets has revived point guard Patty Mills and center Nick Claxton on a two-year contract when the NBA's free agency opens Thursday, ESPN reported.
Mills has signed a two-year, $ 14.5 million contract, and Claxton has reportedly signed a two-year, $ 20 million contract.
Mills joined Brooklyn as a free agent last August, shooting 40% out of the 3-point range in 81 games (48 games started), averaging 11.4 points and 2.3 assists. He couldn't play while he wasn't vaccinated with COVID-19, so Kyrie Irving was out of the lineup and became a part-time starter.
Australians will be 34 by next season. He turned down the $ 6 million option at Nets on Wednesday in search of a bigger deal.
Nets chose Claxton in the second round of the 2019 draft (31st overall). He has made 94 career appearances (20 starts), averaging 7.3 points and 5.0 rebounds per game.
In 2021-22, his third NBA season, the 23-year-old 23-year-old shot 67.4% in 47 games (19 games), 8.7 points and 5.6 per game. Recorded the highest rebound record.
Nets reportedly added Mills and Claxton to the fold the same day he acquired Forward Royce O'Neal from Utah Jazz and received a trade request from superstar Kevin Durant.
