2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Royce White


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-8, 250

School: Iowa State, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Strength
  • Establishing position down low
  • Rebounder
  • Quick on his feet for someone his size
  • Several post-up moves on the block
  • Face-up game
  • Can play point forward position
  • Handles the ball like a guard
  • Can take bigger opponents off the bounce
  • Passing ability



    Weaknesses:
  • Perimeter shooting
  • Free throw shooting
  • Decision-making; forces too many passes
  • Effort isn't always there
  • Character questions regarding arrest as a freshman at Minnesota

    Summary: After sitting out of basketball for two years, White has shown what the hype surrounding him coming out of high school was all about. He is a unique talent and should be a first-round pick at the next level if teams are able to overlook his recent off-the-court issues prior to arriving at Iowa State. Since he is technically in his third year of college, his exit to the NBA could come sooner than later.

    Player Comparison: Anthony Mason. This is a throwback comparison. Mason was a bit undersized but used his size, strength, and ability to handle and distribute the basketball to be an effective pro. That accurately describes what White will bring to the next level.
