College/International Summary

Patterson played three seasons at the University of Kentucky under coaches Billy Gillispie and John Calipari. He chose the Wildcats after a prolonged recruiting battle that included Duke and Florida. In his freshman campaign, Patterson averaged 16.4 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game. He was named the SEC Rookie of the Year and was rewarded with a spot on the All-SEC Second Team. However, he injured his left ankle in late February and missed the remainder of the season. Patterson returned for his sophomore season and increased his per-game averages to 17.9 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks. The 6-foot-9 forward also led the SEC with a 60.3 field-goal percentage. He was again named to the All-SEC Second Team and participated in three NIT games before Kentucky was eliminated in the quarterfinals. In those contests, Patterson averaged 15.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. Kentucky brought in a trio of talented freshman -- John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe -- the following season, and the result was a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Patterson averaged 14.3 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks during his junior campaign. He was named to the All-SEC Second Team for the third straight season and also garnered recognition by securing SEC All-Defense honors. In the NCAA Tournament, Patterson averaged 9.8 points and 8.5 rebounds as Kentucky reached the Elite Eight. Following the season, he declared for the 2010 NBA Draft. Patterson was selected by the Houston Rockets with the fourteenth overall pick.

Patterson produced 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-3 FT), six rebounds and an assist across 25 minutes in Saturday's 105-100 scrimmage win over the Wizards in Orlando.
ANALYSIS
Patterson led the Clippers in scoring, but the absence of Montrezl Harrell has to be taken into account when analyzing Patterson's numbers. Harrell is expected to return to the bubble soon, but there isn't a clear timetable for his return. Ivica Zubac is on his way as well, but his status for the first seeding game is also in doubt. JaMychael Green started in Harrell's place in the starting lineup Saturday, but expect Patterson to be in the mix more often while Harrell and Zubac are out.

2016

Patterson continued to play a key reserve role for the Raptors during the 2016-17 campaign. He came off the bench in all but eight of his 65 contests and averaged 24.6 minutes on the season. The veteran posted per-game averages of 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists. Patterson also made a career-high 1.4 three-pointers per contest while converting 37.2 percent of his shots from deep. In his third game of the season, Patterson established a career high with five blocked shots in a win over Denver. On Nov. 23, he tallied a career-best four steals in a victory versus Houston. Seven days later, the University of Kentucky product tied his career mark with 13 rebounds while scoring 14 points to lead Toronto to a win over Memphis. The Raptors finished the season with a 51-31 record to claim the third playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. In Game 2 of the opening round against Milwaukee, Patterson scored eight points and tallied three steals in a 106-100 victory. Overall, the 6-foot-9 forward played in 10 postseason games and averaged 3.4 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per contest.

2015

However, he played a key role in Toronto's rotation by averaging 25.6 minutes in 79 games.The veteran posted per-game averages of 6.9 points and 4.3 rebounds while making 1.3 three-pointers per contest. He also finished with the highest free-row percentage of his career at 85.3 percent. On Dec. 5, the 6-foot-9 forward collected 10 rebounds -- his top mark of the campaign -- against Golden State. Patterson scored a season-high 18 points against Sacramento on Dec. 20, adding eight rebounds and three steals. He knocked down three or more treys 12 times during the campaign and shot 36.2 percent from deep on the season. In the postseason, Toronto advanced to the Conference Finals before falling in a six-game series versus Cleveland. In total, Patterson played in 20 playoff games, averaging 7.7 points and 3.9 rebounds per contest. He was a key factor in Toronto's Game 2 victory in the opening round against Indiana; in that game, Patterson scored 14 points and grabbed six boards while making 5-of-6 field-goal attempts.

2014

Patterson signed a multi-year contract with Toronto prior to the 2014-15 campaign. For the first time in three seasons, he played the entire campaign with one team, logging a career-high 81 games and averaging 26.6 minutes per contest. In a steady bench role, Patterson established career highs with 5.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. He also continued to develop his outside shot, averaging 1.3 treys per contest -- a career high -- while shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc. Patterson scored a season-high 19 points in a victory over Denver on Dec. 8, adding eight rebounds and drilling five three-pointers.

2013

Patterson opened the 2013-14 campaign with Sacramento, with whom he played 17 games. In those contests, Patterson averaged 6.9 points and 5.8 rebounds while logging 24.4 minutes per game. One season after he was part of a six-player trade, the fourth-year forward was moved to Toronto in a deal involving seven players. With the Raptors, Patterson played in 48 games, averaging 9.1 points and 5.1 rebounds per contest. He continued to evolve as an outside shooter, averaging nearly one three-pointer per game while shooting a healthy 41.1 percent from deep. Patterson tallied a season-high 22 points and tied a season best with three treys in a win over the Pelicans on Feb. 10.

In the final game of the series, he scored 16 points and grabbed eight boards while making all five of his field-goal attempts and all six of his tries from the charity stripe.

2010
Patterson was expected to take on a bigger role with the Thunder last season, but saw just 15.5 minutes per game following the acquisition of Carmelo Anthony. However, with Anthony no longer in the picture after being traded for Dennis Schroder, Patterson should have the opportunity to start, or at least crack 20 minutes per night. The veteran played 11 games last season where he saw between 20-29 minutes, averaging 5.0 points and 3.8 rebounds on 33.3 percent shooting from beyond the arc. He shot much better with a smaller workload, drilling threes at 41.2 percent when seeing between 10-19 minutes.
A mid-August knee surgery will keep Patterson on the sidelines for much of training camp and into the preseason, but the 28-year-old doesn’t seem to be in long-term danger since it was merely a clean-up procedure. After three and half years of efficient play in Toronto, he’ll provide an upgrade to the Thunder’s starting lineup after the team deployed rookie Domantas Sabonis as a starter in 66 games last season. Most importantly for the Thunder, the 28-year-old will stretch the court beyond the arc. Being that Patterson has shot above 36 percent from three-point territory in each of the last five seasons, opposing defenses will have to respect his shot, leading to one less defender able to collapse on Russell Westbrook or Paul George when they drive to the basket. In terms of counting stats, most of Patterson’s value comes by way of averaging nearly half a steal and half a block per game throughout his career, while also averaging 1.3 three pointers over the last three seasons, which is more significant given his power-forward eligibility.
Patterson's first full season in Toronto had its moments, but for the most part, he played the role of useful but unremarkable stretch four, averaging 27 minutes, 8.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.5 blocks, and 1.3 three-pointers in 81 games while shooting 45 percent from the floor, 37 percent from three-point range, and 79 percent from the free-throw line. The three-point shooting, both in accuracy and volume, were career-bests for the 26-year-old, and the Raptors were comfortable enough with his performance at both ends of the court that they made no real effort in the offseason to replace power forward Amir Johnson, instead allowing Patterson to slide into the starting spot and signing Luis Scola and Bismack Biyombo to soak up frontcourt minutes with the second unit. Patterson has never received a full starter's workload in his five-year career, so there are questions about how his game will hold up with extended minutes, but his pick-and-pop skills match up well with Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan's aggression in attacking the rim, so even if his limitations on the glass are exposed in a starting role, he still seems poised for a career year.
Traded for the second time in as many seasons, Patterson found new life in his game once he arrived in Toronto and became a key member of their revitalized second unit. The fourth-year stretch power forward saw increases in his numbers almost across the board after the deal, and between Sacramento and Toronto, he averaged 8.5 points, a career-high 5.3 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.8 three-pointers, and 0.6 blocks in 24 minutes per game over 65 games while shooting 46 percent from the field, 36 percent from the beyond the arc, and 70 percent from the free-throw line. Like most of the Raptors' young roster, Patterson is an athletic specimen, and his well-rounded skill set allows him to contribute on the court in all situations and see plenty of minutes in crunch time. Starting power forward Amir Johnson is in the final year of his contract and has had trouble staying healthy recently, so after Patterson signed a three-year deal this offseason to remain in Toronto, there could be opportunities for him to see increased minutes and production this season with an eye toward him inheriting Johnson's spot in the starting five in 2015-16.
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.
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.
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.
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.
