He will probably stay on with the NBA Players Union and maybe one time return to the NBA in the front office for the league or some franchise (maybe the Magic).

One thing you have to say abotu Pat is that he never complained about his lack of min and he did what he could when he was on the floor, which was make open 3's which he was really good at. He's not a big loss for our team but at the same time you don't get a guy as classy as him to often.

It was already clear that the Magic weren't going to sign him again. Sure he didn't play much and all, but he is a real nice guy. He had his good times with the Magic, so best of luck to you Pat.

Maybe he could be a commentator now. So he doesn't go broke like other retired players.
