Notes:
2014: Selected by Philadelphia in the 1st round (10th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Orlando for Dario Saric and a 2017 1st round pick, June 26th.

A two-time First-Team All-Sun Belt Conference member, and won the league`s Defensive Player of the Year honor following his junior season ... Led the Ragin` Cajuns to the NCAA Tournament this past season in an upset win over top-seeded Georgia State in the Sun Belt championship game ... Earned national defensive honors by receiving the Lefty Driesell Award, given to the nation`s top defensive player ... Played for Team USA on the FIBA U19 World Championship squad in the summer of 2013 ... Averaged 19.2 ppg for Louisiana in 2013-14, adding 6 rpg, 5.9 apg, 2.3 spg, and attempted 8.6 free throws per contest ... Tall and very quick for a point guard, with a killer crossover and an extremely explosive first step ... Can get to the rim seemingly at will, and is a strong finisher at the net ... Scored most of his points driving to the basket, but can be a decent spot-up shooter ... Needs work on his jump shot and shooting consistency, but not much else ... Is an elite defender who reads passes well and can jump the lane ... Solid rebounder for a point guard, who finds his way to the free-throw line often.
