Iowa State's Royce White isn't a flashy player, but he could pay dividends for an NBA franchise before too long.
The 6'8, 260-pound power forward averaged 13.4 points, 9.3 rebounds and five assists during the 2011-2012 season with the Cyclones. He nailed 53 percent of his field goals and used his thick build to crash the boards.
For a low-post player, White is an excellent passer and ball handler. Those facets will certainly bode well for him in the pros.
However, the Minnesota transfer has some question marks.
He's shorter than most NBA power forwards, he shot just 49 percent from the charity stripe, and has a troubled history. Those shortcomings will be tough to eliminate, but White may be able to avert his flaws.
Swishscout.com analyzed the double-edged sword that is Royce White:
Versatile point forward with a unique style of skilled play in getting to the rack, creating for teammates and rebounding the ball. White has copious red flags off-court, lacks a reliable jump shot and can be a defensive liability, but his talent is undeniable as a first round pick with high upside in the 2012 NBA Draft.
