2012: Selected by Denver in 1st round (20th overall) of the NBA Draft...2014: Traded to Orlando with Roy Devyn Marble for Arron Afflalo, June 27th.

Became an intriguing NBA prospect after he led his team, PB86 , with 14 points in 26 minutes of action per game at the age of 19 in France`s premier division...Averaged 6.4 ppg during his rookie season in France`s first division at the age of 18...Continuously in motion on the offensive end and is very crafty driving to the basket...Uses his body well to finish at the rim...Plays within himself on the defensive end and avoids taking too many risks...Expected to maximize his abilities due to a tremendous work ethic and attitude...Became the youngest player in French League history to net more than 20 points in a game...Very mature for his age with a lot of room to grow into a complete player...Lack of explosiveness will hurt scoring ability against NBA players...Needs to develop his outside shot to keep defenders honest...Suffered an injury in May that kept him from working out for as many teams as possible, which could hurt his draft stock in the compressed off- season...Will need to adapt to the different style of play and learn the intricacies of the NBA game to be successful.
