Notes:
2014: Selected by Philadelphia in the 2nd round (47th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to New Orleans, June 27th...2015: Traded to Memphis in a three-team deal, Jan. 12th.

Named to the 2014 John Wooden Award All-America Team ... Was a semifinalist for the Naismith Trophy Player of the Year Award ... Helped lead Louisville to a national championship run his junior year, and took his Cardinals back to the Sweet 16 in the 2014 tournament ... Led Louisville to a victory in the AAC championship game over eventual national champion UConn ... Averaged over 18 ppg in each of his last two seasons, and recorded over 2 spg in three of his four years at Louisville ... Has a fearless tenacity with the ball in his hands, and has proven to be one of the top scorers in the nation ... Possesses an extremely quick first step, and can leave defenders behind with explosive side-to-side movements ... Strong finisher at the rim ... His size is a deterrent, since he`ll be matched up with much larger players at the next level, but offensively he proved size doesn`t matter with his ability to attack the basket ... Strong man-to-man defender.
