Patty Mills is expected to be out seven months after undergoing shoulder surgery this week.

Less than 24 hours after announcing he will undergo shoulder surgery that will keep him out seven months, Spurs free agent guard Patty Mills agreed to a three-year deal with the team on Wednesday, according to a tweet from San Antonio Express News reporter Buck Harvey.

He made $1.3 million last year while averaging 10.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 18 minutes per game. 

Mills, who turns 26 next month, suffered a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder that he reportedly played with last season. He played an integral role in the playoffs last postseason, hitting a number of clutch threes in Game 5 of the Finals against the Heat to win the NBA championship. He had 14 points in Game 4 and 17 points on 5-8 from three in that final game.
