Lamar Patterson signs with Brisbane Bullets of NBL

The former Panther will continue his career in Australia

Big East Basketball Tournament - St. John’s v Pittsburgh

Well, I was working on the NBL app today and I happened to see this so I figured I would write about it:

NBL iOS app

Patterson moves to the top tier professional league in Australia after putting up ridiculous numbers in the Chinese NBL (45.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists per game). The Chinese NBL is considered the second tier league so this will be a step up in competition for Patterson.

The Bullets finished in last place out of eight teams last season, so hopefully Patterson can help spearhead a turnaround. The once proud franchise folded in 2008 due to financial problems. They returned for the 2016-2017 season after years of public outcry.

More details of the signing can be found here.
