During his one season in College Park, he averaged 12.5 points and 5.4 rebounds in 35 games. The Wisconsin native had a breakout game early in Big Ten play with a Terps freshman-record 39 points against Penn State. But he struggled to consistently display the form that made him ESPN's No. 6 overall recruit in its top 100 for 2015.
After the Terps lost in the Sweet 16, Stone declared for the 2016 NBA draft, and the New Orleans Pelicans drafted him in the second round at No. 40 overall, before trading him that night to the Clippers.
Stone didn't receive much playing time in the Clippers' deep frontcourt behind stars Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, but with the Hawks appearing to rebuild under new front office executives, Stone could find a role on his third team in three years.
