Notes:
2014: Selected by Atlanta in the 1st round (15th overall) of the NBA Draft.

Named Second Team All-Big Ten Conference as a senior with Michigan State, even though he missed several games due to an ankle injury ... Also All-Big Ten Second-Team selection as a junior in 2012-13 when he started 24 of the 36 games in which he appeared ... Placed on the preseason watch lists for both the Naismith and Wooden Awards heading into 2013-14 ... Finished career as the all-time leader in blocked shots for the Spartans with 141, and also watched his season scoring averages increase every year, ending at 16.4 ppg ... One of only nine players in MSU history to register at least 1,200 points and 700 rebounds ... A strong presence in the paint with 7.3 rpg as a senior, 5.3 rpg for his career, he also showed great shooting touch out on the perimeter with 42.3 percent accuracy behind the 3-point line last season ... Can be a versatile player who puts all of his effort into every play at both ends of the court.
