Re: Royce White is a Charles Barkley clone
There are rumors that the Celtics gave White a promise. Although I gotta say at 21 and with two back to back picks, I'm not sure what the point of a promise is from the players standpoint. If you're available and they like you why wouldn't they just take you. Why would you stop working out, which is the point of the promise.
I guess if he sees it as a guarantee he doesn't fall out of the first round maybe.
