2009: Selected by New York in 1st round (#8 overall) of the NBA Draft; signed to a 2-year, $4.3 million deal...2010: Traded to Houston in a three-team deal, Feb. 18th...2012: Traded to LA Lakers for Derek Fisher and a 1st round draft pick, Mar. 15th; Re-signed with LA Lakers to a two-year deal worth $7.1 million, July 21st...2014: Re-signed with LA Lakers to a two-year deal worth $18 million.

NBA DRAFT ANALYSIS: Proved to be one of the top players in the nation this past season, averaging 18.3 ppg, to go along with 11.0 rpg, earning a spot on the All Pac-10 First Team...Outstanding athletic ability along with impressive strength...Added size entering his junior year at Arizona and it showed, as his inside game improved drastically...A terror for the opposition because of his athleticism and leaping ability...It might take some time for his offensive game to translate at the next level, but he should have no trouble collecting rebounds at either end of the court in the NBA...Does not have many flaws, but will need to be more disciplined at the next level and stay out of foul trouble.
