2012: Selected by Charlotte in 1st round (2nd overall) of the NBA Draft...2013: NBA All-Rookie Second Team.

Named a 2011-12 All-American by several media outlets following his first and only collegiate campaign, as he helped guide the Kentucky Wildcats to the national championship...Named the NCAA Tournament South Region Most Outstanding Player...Placed second on the Wildcats with seven double-doubles, three of those coming against top-20 programs...Produced 11.9 ppg, 7.4 rpg and 37 steals and blocked shots...Benefited from having top-notch talent around him at Kentucky, taking some of the pressure off and allowing him to pick his spots to shine...Plays best in the open court, using his athleticism to exploit defenses...Moves well without the ball, continues to improve his perimeter game on offense and is a tough defender who isn`t afraid to get physical...Can do countless things on a basketball floor, but doesn`t necessarily dominate in any one particular area.
