Mills? Maybe in very short spurts but the stints I have seen on him, he is fast but just overpenetrates and gets blocked or too far under the rim and jumps to pass and can't find anybody. I'd add that wrinkle, but also toy with putting Roy at the 1 for short stretches (w/ Matthews, Batum, Crash, LA) or Camby in that lineup too and he can bring the ball up, make a pass to someone on the wing, then duck into the post on JKidd.
