The Toronto Raptors have extended a qualifying offer to Patrick Patterson, making him a restricted free agent. That means the Raptors have a right to match any offer made by another team to Patterson. I'd say that's good news for the big guy.

  • Why Florida's Patric Young, Scottie Wilbekin and Casey Prather were not drafted:

    Like it or not, Florida's seniors, who were good enough to lead the Gators to one of the best seasons in school history, and the precipice of one of the best seasons in college basketball history, were not good enough for 30 NBA teams to use draft picks to pick them up. That doesn't mean that they weren't good at or for Florida, just that the NBA is a different and more difficult game.

    I think this is right. They were great college basketball players, but the NBA is an entirely different game.

  • Big Ten Powerhouse asks, "Is Tom Crean on the hot seat?" Consider:

    There are clearly two factions of the fan base here - one which believes Crean will lose his job if the NCAA Tournament is not reached this year , and one which believes Crean saved the program from permanent collapse and therefore deserves much more time.

    Well? What do you think?
