It’s no secret that the Rockets drafted three guys in the last two seasons who play the same position as Patterson. Terrence Jones, Royce White and Donatas Motiejunas were all impressive in the NBA Summer League just a few weeks ago while Patterson watched from the bench as a spectator. Jones and White can also play the small forward spot, but one or the other will play at the four position. Motiejunas doesn’t have the strength or body to play center anytime soon. Power forward is stacked for the Rockets, and right now Patterson is falling behind. It’s been said that Patterson has been working harder than ever this offseason to improve his game and take over Luis Scola’s spot in the starting rotation, but while he was in the gym, the kids were getting the spotlight on NBA TV.
