NBA Mock Draft Pick #29 -- Justin Patton, Center, Creighton

SBNation’s San Antonio Spurs blog Pounding the Rock explains their pick:

In a deep draft, the Spurs were hoping that a high-upside talent might fall to them at 29 for a second year in a row. They feel they got that in Justin Patton, a long, mobile seven-footer brimming with potential on both ends of the floor. Patton has the size, motor and offensive instincts to play spot minutes early on, but the Spurs are more intrigued by his long-term outlook, as a multifaceted scorer and passer who can develop into a defensive anchor. There are a few fundamentals in his game that need smoothing out, but luckily the Spurs have an unsanctioned assistant coach/Hall of Famer/new member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who should be able to help with that.
