I think he will make it. I don't think the Blazers FO is *******s enough to cut somebody without letting them prove themselves. That is what they pride themselves on also...Nicolas Batum...Ime Udoka...Travis Outlaw.
I think they will keep Mills around for the year because they want to see what he can give, also because he played in the Olympics against the World's best talent and did well. We saw what Rudy could do in the NBA after doing well in the Olympics...maybe the same from Mills.
IMO...Mills = biggest steal of the draft in the past five years. In some mocks, they had him going late first round and Blazers get him late second.
