MBSK 09_10 UK_FLA Web 17.jpgReports out of Houston indicate that former Kentucky forward Patrick Patterson has signed an NBA contract with the Houston Rockets, who selected Patterson with the 14th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

Patterson's agent, Odell McCants, told FOX 26 Sports in Houston that Patterson will sign a standard two-year deal with two one-year team options.

"It feels great and I'm happy for Patrick," McCants said, according to the FOX 26 story. "The Rockets are a great organization and I know they have big plans for him."

Patterson scored 18 points in his Rockets' Summer League debut Friday night.

"Patrick's dream is to play in the NBA," McCants said. "So this is a dream come true for Patrick when he signs the contract (Tuesday night) making it official that he is in the NBA and with the Rockets."

With Eric Bledsoe's announced deal with the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, all five UK players drafted in the NBA have now signed NBA contracts.
