NBA Comparison: Damon Stoudamire/Fat Lever

Strengths: Mills is a tremendously quick PG with good ball-handling skills ... A tremendous competitor who rises to the challenge in big situations. He proved that he is very difficult to stop at the open court and loves pushing the ball (vs. USA at the Olympics) ... A fundamentally sound and skilled player. Mills is always looking to score and he is more of a shoot first-pass second PG 18.4 PPG ... Has a quick first step ... Possesses a good outside jump-shot as well as NBA range ... Solid mechanics on his shot ... Sets up his defender well to get open when coming off the screens; if he sets his body and feet are squared to the basket he is difficult to stop (vs. Gonzaga 6-8 for 3PT) ... Mills can create shots off the dribble at any time due to his ball handling ability and his cross-over ... Has a good ability to play the pick and roll with a big man and making the right choices, helped by his quickness and passing skills ... Possesses solid passing ability and court vision; can find open teammates cutting to the basket or passing the ball to the low post 3.9 APG ... Defensively he is very tough and has long arms that helps him get steals (does a good job of playing passing lanes) 2.2 SPG. Good leader on the floor. A tremendous FT shooter .859% ... Possesses great International experience playing on Australian National Team in the Olympics (where he was the surprise leading scorer) as well as FIBA U19 World Championship ... A tremendous character guy who teams see as a perfect back up PG ...

Weaknesses: Lack of size and strength ... Not a true PG at this point as he is better at scoring than running a team ... Relies too much on his outside shot and can be a very inconsistent shooter .338 3PT% ... Takes too many contested and wild shots ... Questionable decision maker. Has to do a better job of attacking the rim and finishing under pressure ... Avoids contact under the basket ...
