    Notes:
    2008: Selected by Philadelphia in 1st round (16th overall) of the NBA Draft...2012: Traded to Memphis in a three-team deal, Jan 4th; Re-signed with Memphis to a two-year deal worth $8.7 million, July 13th...2013: Traded to Cleveland in a four-player trade, Jan. 22nd; Signed with Golden State to a three-year deal worth $11 million, July 12th.

    Was the one of the top players in the SEC this past season...His combination of size and strength are perfect for the next level...Surprising speed and impressive moves in the paint...Could develop into a dominating scorer in the paint...Speights plays with a tough edge and his defensive play and rebounding is top notch...To become an elite player in the NBA he will have to work on his outside jumper...Needs to hit the gym and begin a legitimate conditioning regiment.
