2014 NBA Draft: Lamar Patterson drawing interest of several NBA teams

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It's not a given that former Pitt forward Lamar Patterson will be taken in the NBA Draft. So far, though, he is drawing his share of interest by pro teams.

With the Combine ending last week, Patterson has already met individually with the Miami Heat, Washington Wizards, Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs, Milwaukee Bucks, Atlanta Hawks, and New Orleans Pelicans. You can probably add the Chicago Bulls to that list by now as he was supposed to work out with them after the Combine as well.

Patterson is considered a fringe prospect, but you can (obviously) count his agent as one of the guys that thinks he has a better chance to be drafted than not:

"I know there are some teams that are absolutely convinced Lamar is an NBA player,’’ Pensack said. "I’d say the odds of him getting drafted are much better than not getting drafted.’’

We'll see. It's not even mildly surprising that his agent thinks he has a very good shot at getting drafted. But as I wrote before, several projections had Patterson as a late pick as well, so it's certainly not out of the question.
