So much for that draft option. He's going back to school
Kentucky forward Patrick Patterson has withdrawn his name from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season. The Wildcats are expected to make Patterson’s decision official by issuing a press release later today.
A forward, Patterson averaged 17.9 points and a team-high 9.3 rebounds last season for the Wildcats, who should have one of the top frontcourts in the country in 2009-10 with Patterson and incoming freshmen DeMarcus Cousins and Daniel Orton.
