2012; Selected by Golden State in the 2nd round (52nd overall) of the NBA Draft.

Drew attention from NBA scouts while playing in the second division of Spain`s professional league...Flew under the radar until this past season when he averaged 10.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks in 24.5 minutes per game...Finished the 2011-2012 season strong with an average of 15.2 rebounds per game over his last four games...Made huge strides over the past few seasons and reportedly has a strong work ethic to go with great size and length...Very active player in the paint off the ball who constantly fights to gain a positional advantage...Does a great job of using his physical traits to his advantage against smaller, weaker opposition...Has decent agility and mobility for a player of his size...Very disruptive as a defender and shot blocker...Needs to develop more strength as he struggled against powerful centers...Has not shown to be a reliable threat away from the basket...Has great height but a thin frame...Has an aggressive style of play that should only improve due to a strong work ethic...Quick development into a viable draft prospect might be overshadowed by lack of experience against quality competition...Very fundamental post player.
