Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Patterson and the Blazers have agreed to a training camp deal.

Portland tips off its training camp on Sept. 28.

At 32 years old, Patterson last played for the Los Angeles Clippers with the team signing him in Aug. of 2019.

Last season, he appeared in 38 regular season games with five starts, averaging 5.2 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. For his career, Patterson holds averages of 6.7 points and 3.9 rebounds in 20.8 minutes played per game.

Patterson, who was selected No. 14 overall by the Houston Rockets in the 2010 NBA Draft, also got to know new Trail Blazers head coach Chauncey Billups over the last two seasons with the Clippers. Couple that relationship with Patterson’s veteran experience, it spells two factors that could help him stick with the Blazers.

Patterson now joins Dennis Smith Jr. and Marquese Chriss to compete for the Blazers’ final roster spots.
