The Atlanta Hawks' first-round draft pick in 2010 didn't spent any time at The Highlight Factory, heading to the then-New Jersey Nets in a Draft-night deal. In Jersey, he became the kind of player many expected he'd turn into at the NBA level. Standing at 6-foot-7, he gave a few inches up to most of his competition, and didn't quite develop the outside game to stretch the defense as much as he'll need to in order to stick up in the NBA. But he's getting there. Additionally, he still pulled down nearly four rebounds in 18 minutes a night across two seasons with the Nets, and looks like a player bound for another shot. Soon.
