Royce White
 
One of the most underrated players in the draft. If he had stayed with Kentucky, I'm sure he would be a top ten pick. His anxiety problems surely do not help, but if he can overcome those he can surely help this team. PG in a 4's body and he is physically ready for the NBA. Hope we get him.

Draftexpress has us picking fab melo, I hope celtics pick royce. Fab looks another of those centers that would be out of the league by his 3rd season

They have 2 picks, they potentially could get both. I'm interested in seeing how this draft shakes out.

Fab is a low risk high reward in my eyes, he's only 19-20 so with a great staff, you can build him into what you want. I think at 18-25, he's worth the risk.

I like ROyce White, Im praying Terrence Jones from KY because he's essentially what jeff Green is at 21.

He is going to be a steal for whoever gets him. Celtics would be very lucky to grab him in the 20s right when they are about to start rebuilding.

I was upset that we missed out on this guy, but the C's did OK.

I'm surprised you guys didn't get a shot at Royce because I figured teams would shy away from his anxiety issues. He seems to be dealing with them in a mature way so I guess the Rockets were ok with it. The guy is def a top 15 talent in this draft tho.

Sullinger and Royce White have a lot of similarities. Both are PFs who are probably too slow to defend athletic NBA SFs.

White's handle, back, and court vision are superior to Sullinger's.

Sullinger's jumper, size, and post skills are superior to White's.

Basically you are looking at a jump shot versus play-making.

The minor back issues and personality/anxiety issues are other factors.

White is a 3 in a 4's body. Sullinger is a 5 in a 4's body.
