He then played college basketball at Virginia before being sleeted by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 33rd pick (2nd round) of the 2014 NBA Draft.

After playing with the Cavs, he would be traded to the Orlando Magic but waived and subsequently become a free agent. He would later sign with the Nets, where he has played the last several seasons.
