Not sure what affect if any this has on Patterson, or Donovan's long term decision if there really is a decision to be made there, but Randolph Morris has signed a 2 year deal with the Knick's ending his career with Kentucky.

did not need to be drafted was unsigned last year without agent ........................sorry for spelling /grammer
He was a free agent. I think you can count out UK getting Patterson/Lucas. Probably an NIT season next year for the Cats.
Not only that, but I would assume that this will make getting a top-notch coach a little harder. I know that the UK job is one of the top ones in the country, but anyone who accepts the job has to know that their first season would be incredibly difficult. Not only are they likely to lose a relatively large number of games, but the UK fans don't give the coach much slack.
