Boston Celtics are expected to make several changes to their roster under new president of basketball operations Brad Stevens.

According to Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald, Patty Mills is among the 7-8 free agents the Celtics are planning to pursue once teams can begin negotiating on August 2.

The veteran guard is coming off a four-year, $48 million deal with the San Antonio Spurs, where he spent the last 10 seasons of his career.

In 68 games coming off the bench last season, Mills averaged 10.8 points, 1.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists per contest, providing a spark as a back-up guard.

Mills is competing in Tokyo Olympics with Australia during the time, being one of the top players of the competition so far.
