A little love for Patrick Patterson

So, I'm not a big DMC guy.  If we stay at #4 I think we'll suck it up and take Wes Johnson.  He fits the need, is athletic and has no attitude baggage (I still hope we trade for ET and this point is moot).  Now with 16 someone will fall to us, and I know we're all in love with Paul George and Xavier Henry, but they will likely be gone, and if we take Wes, its less likely that another rookie wing is gonna help us win.  However, it is likely that Patrick Patterson will be there waiting for us and I think he might be the best pick no one's talking about.

As I look at our PF problem with Al and KLove, they are both really good players but I just don't see us maxing out Al's skills with our new system.  KLove should fit ok, but needs up his conditioning.  Thus, if we end up trading Al at some point we are going to need a legit backup PF and I don't think Pekovic is that guy.  Pek is a better C on our team than he would be a PF.

Patterson could be a terrific add to our team.  He's got a terrific skill set on offense, a chiseled body, and plays with high energy on D.  I think he could be a perfect fit to our "running" team that Kahn wants to make happen.  I really feel he should be a very solid rotation guy right away with some potential starting ability down the road.
