2014: Selected by Utah in the 1st round (23rd overall) of the NBA Draft.

Second Team All-ACC selection in 2013-14, netting 16.1 ppg while boasting impressive percentages from the field (.464), 3-point range (.420) and the foul line (.807) ... Sat out the 2012-13 campaign per NCAA transfer rules after averaging 10.3 ppg and 4.8 rpg as a freshman at Mississippi State in 2011-12 ... One of the best pure shooters in the draft with the ability to score from nearly anywhere on the court ... Quick first step off the dribble ... Bulked up over the past few years without losing much speed or quickness ... Solid defender ... Not very physical ... Rarely attacks the rim ... Not an effective rebounder ... Lacks the length of most NBA small forwards ... Defensive effort questioned at times ... Has never been the go-to scoring option.
