Notes:
2011: Selected by Sacramento in 1st round (7th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Charlotte in a three-team trade, June 23rd.

Took up the sport of basketball later than most, yet has developed quickly and is one of the more aggressive defenders in this year`s draft...Is listed at a mere 18 years of age, but some speculate he might actually be older given how well he has played with ACB team Fuenlabrada where he averaged 6.4 points and 5.1 rebounds per contest in a mere 17 minutes per outing...More impressive is his penchant for blocked shots, posting more than two per game in limited action...Exploded onto the U.S. scene in the middle of April at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland where he recorded a triple-double with 12 points, 11 rebounds and a game-high 10 blocked shots versus the USA Jr. National Select Team...Plays very well off the ball on defense and can handle his own man no matter how physical...Quick off the ground as he works the glass, he shows soft hands and great determination...Needs to refine his offensive game and his accuracy at the free-throw line...Sports a huge wingspan at 7-7, making him an easy target to find on offense and a large obstacle to get around at the defensive end...Clearly rough around the edges and a work in progress, but his potential has scouts and general managers planning for years down the road and not necessarily immediate returns on their investment.
