Notes:
2012: Selected by LA Clippers in 2nd round (53rd overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Houston, June 28th...2013: Traded to Philadelphia, July 13th.

Considered one of the top rebounders in Europe after averaging 14.8 points and 15.9 rebounds in the 2011 Under 20 European Championships and was awarded a spot on the first team of the competition...Contributed 6.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in 17 minutes per game while playing for Galatasary Medical Park in Turkey`s Premier League in 2011-2012...Has great coordination and foot speed for a player of his size...Consistently alert on the offensive end and has a good feel for the game...Smart defender with quick lateral movements and great timing on blocks...Has very little one-on-one moves in the post...Plays like a center but will have to adjust to playing power forward in the NBA...Scored the majority of his points off of offensive rebounds or easy finishes...Not an elite athlete, but has enough strength to play inside...Withdrew from the 2011 NBA Draft but has greater buzz surrounding him this year.
