2014: Selected by San Antonio in the 2nd round (60th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Brooklyn for cash, June 26th.
All-Big 12 Conference Third Team selection in 2013-14, averaging 13.3 ppg and 8.2 rpg ... Posted similar numbers in 2012-13 (13.3 ppg, 8.0 rpg) while blocking a career-high 1.9 shots per game ... Field goal percentage dipped from .610 as a junior to .500 as a senior ... Impressive combination of size, athleticism and length ... Strong defender and rebounder ... Solid touch on his jump shot and can even knock down a 3-pointer ... Bulked up in recent
years and projects as a natural power forward ... Raw talent without many offensive moves ... Needs to continue to get stronger ... Not an efficient passer.
