But Mills won’t be with the Rockets for long — or at all, actually. Instead, he is headed to the Thunder, as relayed first by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Along with Mills, the Thunder will receive draft picks to take on Mills’ $6.8 million expiring contract, Wojnarowski added.

The Rockets will receive the Bucks’ 2028 second-rounder and trade a future second-rounder to the Nets as part of the deal.

Mills, 34, has long been one of the league’s most-reliable players off the bench. He averaged 6.1 points on 41 percent shooting in 40 games last season. That included 37 percent on 3-pointers.

“Patty was an exemplary representative of the Nets during his two years in Brooklyn, both for his contributions on the court and his impact in the community,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said in a statement. “We thank Patty for all he has brought to our organization and wish him and Alyssa nothing but the best in their next chapter.”

Mills has also spent time with the Trail Blazers and Spurs.
