2014: Selected by Milwaukee in the 1st round (2nd overall) of the NBA Draft.
Consensus First Team All-America selection as a freshman in 2013-14, averaging 19.1 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg and 1.1 spg while logging impressive percentages from the field (.473), 3-point range (.358) and the foul line (.748) ... Scored a career-high 30 points in the regular-season finale in a win over nationally-ranked North Carolina ... Extremely polished offensive performer despite being only 19 years old ... Outstanding step-back jumper ... Can slash and drive off either hand ... Great touch and form on his jump shot ... Strong ball-handler who can beat his man off the dribble ... Good finisher above the rim ... Adept at drawing contact ... Plays composed and smart, yet aggressively ... Great size and length ... Fluid athlete with quick feet ... Very good rebounder ... A primary scorer who doesn`t play selfishly ... High-character leader ... Solid playmaker on defense in terms of generating
turnovers, but oftentimes struggles in one-on-one matchups against top competition ... Needs to match intensity shown on offense with stronger play on defense ... Caught between small forward and power forward, and it`s unlikely he`ll be adequately able to defend either position early in his career ... Not the athletic freak most top picks are ... Expected to be selected in the top three, and likely be an immediate impact player.
