Notes: 2010: Selected by Houston in 1st round (14th overall) of the NBA Draft...2013: Traded to Sacramento in a six-player deal, Feb. 20th; Traded to Toronto in a seven-player deal, Dec. 9th.
Has the perfect size for the next level, and he uses his body extremely well when working in the paint...Has soft hands and a variety of post moves which makes him a dangerous weapon around the rim...Understands his role on the floor and overall has an intelligent approach to the game, but at the same time he has the gritty, nasty demeanor that most power forwards at the next level must possess...Tenacious at the defensive end as well...Surprisingly his size and strength has not helped on the glass, as he has dealt with issues in rebounding...While overall he is solid defensively, he could have some
problems guarding the quicker forwards at the next level.
