Notes: 2010: Selected by Toronto in 1st round (13th overall) of the NBA Draft...2013: Traded to Memphis in a three-team deal, Jan. 31st...2014: Signed with LA Lakers to a two-year deal worth $2 million.
Leaves North Carolina after just two years in Chapel Hill, but the forward was a huge help off the bench his freshman season during UNC`s title run...At 6-10, he is very long and has a tremendous wingspan, making him a top notch shot blocker...Has a variety of post moves that also make him a dangerous scorer...Can work well in the post, but can also do damage when faced up against a defenders...While he shows he is able to play with finesse, he can also finish with power thanks to his impressive leaping abilities...Excellent
work ethic, as the forward is continually trying to improve his game and make the extra effort to become a better player...Will need to add some bulk and strength to maximize his potential at the next level.
