   Sham's 2010 NBA Draft Night Recap, Part 1

Pick 14: Well, Carl Landry was easily replaced. Houston picks Patrick Patterson out of Kentucky, an extremely efficient face-up power forward and surefire Reggie Cleveland All-Star.

Patterson showed a three point jumpshot last season after not needing to own one before then. This will benefit him greatly. He is not a slasher or a ball handler, but with efficient offense, good rebounding, post-up play, a strong right hand, a mid-range J, some developing range and sufficient defense at both forward spots, Houston might have just scored the next Donyell Marshall.

   DeMar DeRozan thrives in the arcane, but can he make his team better from there?

[...] DeMarre Carroll and Jonas Valanciunas are not drawing much defensive respect outside of the paint, while Patrick Patterson is not making enough shots this season to capitalise. Although somewhat effective, backup point guard Cory Joseph is not the scoring counterpart of DeRozan in the same way Lowry is, while Delon Wright and Fred VanVleet are not NBA calibre primary playmakers at this time. And while Serge Ibaka has become one of the better stretch bigs in the game, he is not creating looks with or without the ball so much as just taking what crops up. DeRozan is at his best as the first or second scoring option in a two-option line-up, but without Lowry, Toronto has thus far only had one.[...]
