As a freshman, he averaged over 15 points per game and over 7 rebounds. In May 2011, he announced that he would enter the NBA Draft. He was selected 19th overall by the Charlotte Bobcats and immediately traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a trade involving the Bucks, Bobcats, and the Sacramento Kings.
