2011: Selected by Cleveland in 1st round (4th overall) of the NBA Draft...2012: NBA All-Rookie Second Team.

Started 34 of the team`s 36 games as a freshman and averaged 13.1 ppg and 7.8 rpg...Was tabbed as the Big 12`s Freshman of the Year and earned spots on the league`s All-Second Team, All-Defensive Team and All-Freshman Team...A true post presence that has enjoyed plenty of success thanks to his length and explosiveness...A powerhouse in the paint and plays with a tenacity that makes it hard for any opponent to handle...Very smart and versatile player who can score with either hand around the basket...At times he has been able to beat players off the dribble and power towards the net...A terror on the glass...Will need to add some more muscle if he wants to bang around down low in the NBA...Still raw offensively and needs to work on his jump shot...Even worse is his performance at the foul line, a below 50.0 percent shooter from the charity stripe...Tends to disappear in games and lose interest if he is not the focal point.
