HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Rockets have reached a deal with its
top draft pick, forward Patrick Patterson of Kentucky.
Patterson's agent, Odell McCants, tells KRIV-TV in Houston that
Patterson will sign the deal tonight after the Rockets' summer
league team plays Toronto in Las Vegas.
No financial terms have been revealed, but McCants tells the
station that the deal is a two-year deal with two one-year options,
which he says is standard for first-round NBA draft picks.
The Rockets chose the 6-foot-9, 236-pound forward from
Huntington, W.Va., with the 14th pick overall in the draft.
