Notes:
2014: Selected by Charlotte in the 2nd round (45th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Cleveland with Brendan Haywood for Alonzo Gee, June 27th; Traded to Boston in a five-player deal, Sept. 26th.

Two-time All-Pac-12 Conference First-Team selection ... Averaged 14.0 ppg, 6.9 rpg and 3.1 apg as a senior in 2013-14 ... Named the league`s Most Improved Player in 2012-13 (14.9 ppg, 8.4 rpg) ... Outstanding combination of size and athleticism ... The size of a center with a well-rounded skill set ... Great passer ... Sees the floor well and possesses a high basketball IQ ... Solid all-around defender, averaging nearly a block and a steal per game during his career ... Can stretch the floor with a solid jumper ... Regressed from junior to senior season, most noticeably at the foul line (dipping from 79.6 percent to 68.7 percent), and from 3-point range (45.5 percent to 25.6 percent) ... Right-hand dominant on offense, limiting his effectiveness ... Needs to be more aggressive ... Has put on a lot of muscle since arriving at Stanford, but still possesses below-average strength for a man his size.
