Notes:
2014; Selected by Boston in the 1st round (17th overall) of the NBA Draft.

Named to the All-SEC Second-Team and the All-SEC Freshman Team by league coaches ... Final Four NCAA All-Tournament Team ... Averaged 14.3 ppg and 4.3 rpg in 40 games played, which included 39 starts for the freshman ... Was second in Kentucky single-season freshman history with 82 made 3-pointers ... Helped lead his young Kentucky team (which consisted of five starting freshmen in the NCAA Tournament) to the national championship game in 2014 as the eighth seed in the Midwest Region of the bracket ... A big, talented scorer that can play a number of different positions on the court ... Prides himself on his jump shot ... Needs a bit of work defensively, but that part of his game should develop with time ... Finishes strong through contact at the rim, and is already an excellent rebounder.
