There are few things that can even briefly pull the attention of the Big Blue Nation away from a basketball game, but one of them is when a favorite son is traded.

On Wednesday night, news broke that former Wildcat star Patrick Patterson would become a member of the Sacramento Kings in a trade. The Houston Rockets shipped him west along with Cole Aldrich, Toney Douglas and $1 million for Thomas Robinson, Francisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt.

In Sacramento, Patterson will join fellow former Cats DeMarcus Cousins and Chuck Hayes in a frontcourt with a distinct Kentucky flavor. In his third season as a professional, Patterson is averaging 11.6 points and 4.7 rebounds.

A former Cat who doesn't figure to be traded anytime soon is rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. the Charlotte Bobcats drafted him largely based on his intangibles and motor. Dunks like the one shown in the video below over Greg Monroe are a nice bonus.
