Notes:
2013: Selected by Utah in 1st round (21st overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Minnesota, June 27th...2014: NBA All-Rookie Second Team.

First-Team All-Big East Conference performer and the Big East Defensive Player of the Year as a junior in 2012-13, as he helped guide the Louisville Cardinals to the NCAA Championship...Led the Cardinals in rebounding with 9.4 per game last season, accounting for a team-best 83 blocked shots as well...Delivered a modest 9.8 ppg (third on the team) as he shot 53.4 percent from the field, but only 65.2 percent at the free-throw line...Only player to start all 40 games for UofL in 2011-12, posting 9.1 ppg and team highs with 9.1 rpg and 128 deflections...An intimidating presence in the paint, particularly on defense, he still needs to refine his offensive skills and be more aggressive at that end of the floor.
