He will join Team LeBron, which makes him the fourth injury replacement on the roster after DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall and Kevin Love.

Originally selected by Charlotte with the ninth overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft, the CT product has tallied 20 points or more in 32 of his 51 games played this season, extending his franchise record to 219 career 20-point games. He also ranks ninth in the National Basketball Association in three-pointers made with 141.
