2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Patrick Patterson


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-9, 235

School: Kentucky, Junior


Strengths:
  • Physically gifted
  • Combination of strength and length makes him effective on the glass
  • Tremendous athlete
  • Runs the floor well
  • Strong finisher
  • Improved outside shooter
  • Very unselfish; lets the game come to him
  • Does a nice job of finding open space on offense
  • Versatile enough to guard the three or four
  • Uses quickness to defend in the post



    Weaknesses:
  • Must improve his ball-handling
  • Needs to play with more aggression on the defensive end
  • Free throw shooting
  • Still evolving his perimeter game

    Summary: Patterson possess many of the assets that are ideal for an NBA power forward. He briefly tested the NBA Draft waters after his sophomore season but chose to return to Kentucky for his junior year. That decision makes sense, as he has become a better all-around player now that he is in John Calipari's dribble-drive motion offense. A terrific start to his junior season has vaulted Patterson into a likely lottery pick with the potential to be picked in the top 10.

    Player Comparison: Kenyon Martin. Martin was a man among boys at Cincinnati and Patterson is in a similar mold. He is absolutely ripped from a physical standpoint, but is also a tremendous athlete. Patterson has the potential to take over games like Martin did at the collegiate level, though Patterson is a better shooter than Martin was at this point of his career.
