2013-14

Finally, a second player with more upside than warning signs. Patterson had a strong beginning to the 2012-13 season, but lost some of that momentum after being traded from Houston. He is a strong free throw shooter for a big man, and is capable of averaging almost one 3-pointer per game. If Patterson can secure enough minutes, he can be valuable in all formats. One interesting note: Patterson played with Cousins at Kentucky.

2012-13

With Marcus Camby and Samuel Dalembert gone, the starting power forward job is Patterson's to lose. Patterson showed glimpses of what he could do last season, scoring 24 points in a game and registering double-digit rebounds in three contests. Patterson is athletic and has good range on his jumper for a big man, but the offense is likely to run through Kevin Martin and Jeremy Lin this year.

2011-12

The 6-9, 240-pound Patterson showed signs during his rookie year, blocking shots, rebounding and shooting well from the floor. He's set to be in the front court mix both as an undersized center and natural power forward, as soon as he's fully recovered from offseason ankle surgery.

2010-11

The 6-9, 240-pound Patterson is NBA-ready physically, has great athleticism, can block shots and crash the boards. He also has unusual range on his jumper for a big man, and his work ethic has drawn praise from NBA scouts. Patterson's post game is still a bit raw, but he could carve out a role before too long as Luis Scola's primary backup at the four if he can beat out Jordan Hill.
