The Kings signed recently waived Hawks shooting guard Lamar Patterson on Thursday.
Patterson had a great Summer League and preseason last year and had some nice moments on the floor for the Hawks before heading to the D-League. Atlanta grabbed two forwards in the first round in Taurean Green and DeAndre’ Bembry and that could start pushing Kent Bazemore into the shooting guard slot, and it appears they had too many wings including Tim Hardaway Jr., who they essentially traded Jerian Grant for last year. It looks like Patterson was the odd man out and the Kings did well to grab a player that profiles much better than what can usually be found on the waiver wire.
