Notes:
2008: Selected by Minnesota in 2nd round (31st overall) of the NBA Draft...2010: signed with Minnesota to a three-year deal worth $13.3 million, Aug. 23rd; Made NBA debut...2013: Re-signed with Minnesota to a five-year deal worth $60 million, Aug. 14th

A very aggressive young man, with explosive talent and a hard work ethic...He is extremely strong, and uses his physical gifts to dominate the paint...Prototypical low post player, who loves to play with his back to the net...Very tough in the paint, and will get most of his points in the post...He is surprisingly mobile for his size and runs the floor well...He also plays well without the ball in his hands...Very sound defensively as well, using his long arms and tough play to cause problems for the opposition...While he works well offensively in the paint, the youngster does not possess a mid-range jumper and also struggles from the foul line.
