Notes:
2013: Selected by Boston in the 1st round (16th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Dallas then traded to Atlanta, June 27th...2014: Traded to Toronto with Lou Williams for John Salmons and a draft pick, June 30th; Made NBA debut.

Known in his home country of Brazil as Bebe Gigant (Baby Giant)...Stood at 6-4 at the age of 14 and is seen by some as the next big thing in the NBA...A true seven-footer with the athleticism to run the floor like a gazelle...Speed for his size is amazing, with the ability to make very quick and sharp moves...Outstanding leaping abilities, which makes him a terror on the glass, and a force around the rim...Tremendous shot blocker...Possesses a solid shooting stroke and he can also hold his own at the foul line...Still needs to grow into his body to withstand the physical nature of the game in the NBA...Still a bit raw offensively, but is steadily improving.
