The Rockets have sent 14th overall pick Patrick Patterson to the Rio Grande Vipers of the NBA’s Developmental League.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, via Friedman’s twitter, cited depth on the front line and the lack of playing time that Patterson is receiving as reasons for the demotion. Patterson should get a lot more minutes and time to work on his game for the Vipers.

Patterson had picked up DNP-Coach's Decision in all six of the Rockets games to date.
