Notes: 2011: Selected by Phoenix in 1st round (13th overall) of the NBA Draft...2014: Signed with Phoenix to a four-year contract extension worth $32 million.
Not as polished a scorer as his twin brother Marcus, but is much more ready physcially for the NBA...Closed out his junior campaign with a selection to the Big 12`s Second Team and was an All-American Honorable Mention...Averaged 13.6 ppg last year and led the Big 12 in rebounding at 8.3 rrpg...Prototypical body for the NBA...A strong physical specimen that enjoys the physical aspects of the game down low...Does an excellent job finishing around the rim and has a variety of post moves...Surprisingly has a nice jump shot for a big man, but does most of his damage in the paint...Improved offensively over the years,
but he is known more for his play defensively...A tenacious athlete with a non-stop motor...Very aggressive, an intimidating force on the glass...While he has improved offensively, his jump shot is still inconsistent, especially the farther he gets from the basket...Not a great ball handler and will struggle beating players off the dribble.
