    Updated: 9 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — General Mills said its profit fell by more than half after it took a charge to write down the value of its Green Giant frozen and canned vegetables business, to which it plans to devote less resources.

General Mills CEO Ken Powell noted that the frozen category has been declining, and that people also seem to be gravitating toward traditional "blocks" of frozen vegetables, which cost less than the vegetable blends and packages with sauces Green Giant offers. As a result, General Mills decided to pull resources from Green Giant.

The 6-foot-5, 201 pounder with a 39-inch vertical averaged 15.9 points and 5.3 rebounds a a junior at Arkansas. But the 21-year-old entered the draft this year knowing he might not be a first-round pick because it was time to " provide for my family and my son ."
