2. Patty Mills

Patty Mills doesn't have a massive contract. He made $2 million last year and is an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Miami could bring him back if they choose, but that hasn't much upside. Mills offers a solid base of good shooting and pesky defense, but it's not a must for Mills to return.

Terry Rozier, Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, and potential draft picks fill the Heats' guard room. This group has a mix of funky ball-handling, post-game, and excellent three-point shooting. These three are very different, bringing their unique spices to the kitchen. Mills' skill overlaps in a few of these areas; he's just not as good and a little older. Mills is 36 years old and less impactful than his veteran teammate, Kevin Love. He's a good guy and a solid vet in the locker room. That's a plus attribute, but nothing on the court screamed, "Bring Patty Mills back."
