Notes:
2014: Selected by the Orlando Magic in the 1st round (12th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Philadelphia with a 2017 1st round pick for Elfrid Payton, June 26th.

Led the Adriatic League in scoring in 2013-14 with 16.7 ppg (on 49.7 percent field goal shooting), while adding 9.7 rpg and 3.2 apg ... Won both the league MVP and the Finals MVP in 2014 ... FIBA European Young Player of the Year in 2013 ... Gifted and well-rounded talent offensively ... Handles the ball as well as anyone his size, often filling the role of "point forward" ... Great instincts and court vision ... High basketball I.Q. ... Plays with tremendous energy and grit ... Can finish well in transition ... Impressive post moves ... Attacks both the offensive and defensive glass ... Odd shooting mechanics, but can knock down open shots from long range ... Merely an average athlete with less-than-desirable speed and quickness ... Lacks vertical leap to finish well above the rim ... Holds his own on defense, but needs to improve against stronger NBA forwards ... Turnover prone ... Widely regarded as the top international forward prospect, and his offensive repertoire should earn him a selection in the top half of the first round.
