    Royce White on 1700 the Champ

    Did anyone else catch this interview? I was extremely surprised at Royce's comments regarding his status next season.

    I thought there would have been a thread on this, so I don't have an exact quote, but the gist was that Royce hasn't decided if he will stay or take a shot and enter the NBA draft. He will be taking advice from Coach Hoiberg about whether or not he should pursue the NBA after the NCAA tournament run - which I think is the obvious move.

    However, he made the comment about how his staying another season could cause some tense situations in the locker room regarding playing time promised to other "younger" players. He made it sound as if his position may already have been filled for next season (possibly Niang or Gibson?).

    Could Royce be one of the open scholly's we are looking to fill next season? Just wanted to get what everyone's thoughts were on this.

    This should be good.

    Royce needs to to what's best for Royce. If that's going to the NBA, then fine. If not and the other guys want playing time, they need to step it up.

    I can't imagine that anyone has promised anything to anyone regarding playing time. Time will be found for those who can bring it on the court. I can't imagine we'll be so deep that Royce can't coexist with other players. Not to mention, Niang doesn't sound like the kind of guy who will demand playing time at the expense of anyone, as he seems to indicate that he's willing to do whatever Fred needs.

    Exactly. If Royce is going to go to the NBA, because he wants to give other guys playing time......WTF is he thinking.

    I doubt Fred has promised ANYONE Royce's position.

    Re: Royce White on 1700 the Champ

    This new draft rule really ****s over guys like Royce. Now he can't even test the waters and come back if he wants to.

    THIS....playing time should never be promised, it must be earned by being the best person to be on the floor. Sure, they came thinking the lion would be out of the cage, but if need be, they need to grab a chair and whip and start taming.

    Re: Royce White on 1700 the Champ

    Isn't he projected 2nd round? IMO he really needs to come back for at least 1 more season.

    Re: Royce White on 1700 the Champ

    Royce can be back, and other guys can still get playing time. They gotta beat Royce, though. Simple as that.

    Re: Royce White on 1700 the Champ

    And if Royce leaves, we better get Pelle. I still think we can be a good team next year if Royce goes to the NBA, it will just be a different style of team.

    Re: Royce White on 1700 the Champ

    I just can't imagine him leaving if the money isn't there. Do they have a podcast?

    I would guess the main person hes talking about is percy and percy has already proved hes a big 12 quality player and he needs minutes. It wouldnt surprise me at all if fred told Gibson he would get more PT next year especially if he improves his defense. Hell Gibson could start next year IMO

    Re: Royce White on 1700 the Champ

    I should add that he was very adamant that he will be basing his decision on Coach Hoiberg's opinion. It sounded that if Fred told him it would be worth it to stay at ISU, then that's what Royce will do.
