"The baseball thing, it's good to have options," Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "But I think once he came to Portland, he was invested in being an NBA player. And that's what he's done. … Pat's a very smart player. He's a good all-around player. He's tough. Obviously, he hasn't gotten the chance to play a lot, but he comes to work every day, practices hard, works on his all-around game — offensively, defensively, ball-handling, shooting, passing. He's been a great teammate and hopefully he has a bright future."
