2010: Selected by Minnesota in 1st round (4th overall) of the NBA Draft...2012: Traded to Phoenix in a three-team deal, July 27th...2013: Signed with LA Lakers to a one-year deal worth $916,000, July 15th...2014: Re-signed with LA Lakers to a one-year deal worth $1 million.

The 2010 Big East Player of the Year was also an All-American First Team selection...Began college career at Iowa State, but quickly transferred to Syracuse where he became one of the most dominant players in the nation...His success is due largely because of his athletic abilities...Tremendous wingspan, to go along with outstanding leaping ability...A pure shooter that can drive the lane, or connect on the mid-range and three point shot...More than just a shooter, possessing excellent court vision...Unselfishness makes him a tremendous passer...Great rebounder with solid leaping ability...Could stand to bulk up some to deal with the more physical players at the next level...Tends to rely on the jump shot too much at times, and refuses to drive the line, which ultimately keeps him off the foul line...Has trouble creating off the dribble at times and is more of a spot-up shooter.
