“He’s getting better every day,” one NBA scout said of Patton. “He’s only a freshman whose body needs to improve.” “The sky is the limit, he has tremendous upside,” a second scout said. After Patton destroyed St. John’s to the tune of a career-high 25 points along with 9 rebounds and 4 assists in Creighton’s 85-72 win over the Red Storm on Wednesday night, Chris Mullin offered up this praise of the 19-year-old Patton.
“He reminds me of Marcus Camby,” Mullin said when I asked what he thought of Patton. “[He has] great hands and even banged a three. Especially tonight, he looked All-NBA.”Follow Adam Zagoria on Twitter And like ZAGS on Facebook
