    Re: Excellent article on Royce

    While I agree 100000% with the story, I don't agree with the headline. He's not being punished if he drops in the draft. NBA owners and execs have every right to do what they want when investing that amount of money into somebody. If White makes them uneasy so be it. I think it's a mistake, but not a punishment.

    I understand the angle though and I think I like it.

    Re:Excellent article on Royce

    It's going to require some balls to pick him early. That trait is lacking in average management. I still think he'll go 10-15.

    This. But it's possible, perhaps probable, that Mr. Medcalf doesn't write his own headlines.

    Eddy Curry, to use on example, most likely has several dozen mental disorders that have not even been discovered yet. Royce has a better chance of curing cancer than that guy had of being a franchise cornerstone.

    I know. He's a good writer from what I remember of some of his work.

    Re: Excellent article on Royce

    I could see him going to Minnesota at #18, I think they will deal Derrick Williams for a SG or SF, then I think Royce will would fit perfect as their 3rd big behind Love and Nikola Pekovic.

    No way the T-Wolves trade Derrick Williams. He is a talented young player who can play in and out. He will be a great compliment to K-Love because their skills mesh very well. Towards the middle of the season when Rubio was starting to role Williams' numbers started to rise as well as his numbers.

    I live in Minneapolis so if they drafted White I'd be ecstatic but he doesn't fit their roster. The T-Wolves need a wing who can shoot ala Derrick Williams.

    Adelman only played Williams at PF last year though and with Love holding down that spot for the next 10+ years, it would be a waste to have a #2 pick backing him up.

    I love Williams' game but I'd like to see the Wolves trade Williams + to Charlotte who wants to move out of #2, draft Beal at 2 and Royce at 18

    Rubio - Beal - ???? - Love - Pekovic
    Bench- White, Barea, Ridnour, Wes Johnson

    But I digress, this is a Clones forum afterall

    Re: Excellent article on Royce

    If they move Williams to the 3, they still need a 3rd big and White would still fit and they worked him out the other day.

    Sure this was already posted but http://www.mndaily.com/blogs/upon-fu...ct-royce-white

    Re: Excellent article on Royce

    I'm tired of hearing about Royce's "anxiety issues." I can only imagine how he feels about it

    Talks about it all here ...

    Cavaliers report: Iowa State's Royce White an intriguing player - Cavs - Ohio

    White, who measured 6-foot-8 at the combine, earned honorable mention All-America honors after playing one season at Iowa State. He was the only player in the nation to lead his team in five categories: scoring (13.4 points), rebounds (9.3), assists (5.0), steals (1.1) and blocks (0.9). He had 18 points and 17 rebounds against Kansas forward Thomas Robinson, who is expected to go within the top five picks of the draft, and he had 23 points and nine rebounds in an NCAA Tournament loss to a loaded Kentucky team that ultimately won the national championship.

    Yet White is projected to go late in the first round and could be on the board when the Cavs select at No. 24. ......

    His talent is tantalizing on the court. He is athletic enough to run the point and powerful enough to play on the blocks. He is considered a “point forward” and left teams walking away impressed at last week’s combine.

    “He’s one of those guys who is hard to peg,” one Western Conference executive said at the combine. “He could be a late lottery pick or he could be on the board late [in the first round].” ....
