Patrick Patterson returns to play for title at Kentucky

2

Patterson, a 6-foot-9 forward, is arguably the top returning forward in the SEC after averaging 17.9 points and 9.3 rebounds for Billy Gillispie this past season. Patterson was projected as a first-round pick in the June 25 draft. The NBA's deadline to withdraw from the draft is June 15. We had him slotted to the Bulls at 26. "He said, 'Wait a minute, I want to do this,'" new Kentucky head coach John Calipari said. "He said he would be wasting everybody's time by staying in the draft, mine, yours and the NBA and 'I just don't want to do it.'" (Hat tip to Norsktroll from the comments!)
