Patton (foot) was traded to the 76ers on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Patton was a piece of the deal that also sent Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia, mainly in exchange for Dario Saric and Robert Covington. Patton recently had his third-year team option declined and will become an unrestricted free agent next season.
Patton (foot) had his third-year option declined on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Patton was the 16th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but has played just four minutes of NBA action. He broke his left foot during the summer he was drafted and then broke his left foot this past summer. Patton will become an unrestricted free agent during the upcoming free agency period.
Patton (foot) underwent successful surgery on Tuesday. Prior to the surgery, the Timberwolves declared Patton out indefinitely. After the surgery, that hasn't changed. Considering he played just one NBA game as a rookie after breaking his other foot around this same time last year, a similar situation could be in store this time around.
Patton is considered out indefinitely after suffering a broken right foot. The injury was reported over the weekend and this confirms that Patton will likely be looking at an extended absence. He's expected to undergo surgery in the near future and a more concrete timetable for his return could potentially be released following it. Either way, it's an extremely tough blow for the second-year big man who missed all but one game as a rookie with a broken left foot.
Patton (foot) suffered a broken right foot and will undergo surgery early next week, Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press reports. Patton was the 16th overall pick for the Timberwolves last year. However, he played just four minutes of NBA basketball after suffering a broken fifth metatarsal in his left foot, and he wasn't healthy until February. He experienced a setback after the season, requiring a second surgery on the same foot in mid-April. Now, while working back from that surgery, he's suffered a break in his other foot. Considering he'll need surgery again, he could be sidelined until the calendar turns to 2019.
