On Jan. 10, Mills was traded from a Portuguese team to one in Madrid. The deal had little to do with Mills' performance. She had been averaging 15 points and seven rebounds per game.
"During the Christmas break, the team hired a Portuguese point guard, who played in the WNBA," said Mills. "The coaching staff felt that with this new addition the team needed to make some changes with personnel.

[They] found me a new team to play for and will still be honoring my contract while I play with the new team."
