Former Creighton Star Justin Patton is the other big piece in The Jimmy Butler Trade.
Justin Patton is 7’0″. You can’t teach size. Patton is young. He left Creighton after two years. Big wingspan! He’s a shot blocker, space taker and rebounder. He gives JJ Reddick space to shoot. Patton looks very strong along side Toby Harris in the paint. Defensive Paint that is.
It’s early, but the young Patton looks to impress. He’s better than Nerlens Noel and will hopefully develop into a “big” big man in the years to come.
