If you go to the draft forum, I posted a link to day 1 of the combine. I'm sure from there you could find day 2 too

Drummond is a fucking beast: 6'9.75 without shoes, 7'6.25 wingspan, 279 pounds (7.5% of fat). His wingspawn is bigger than shaq's

Drummond looks great physically. Really great. There hasn't been a center prospect like him in a long time.

I worry about his skill level, though. You just can't put a 30% free throw shooter on the floor when the other team is in the penalty.

Royce White seems like an interesting prospect to me. he is undersized, but very athletic with good handles, and is a great passer. oh yea and he is 270lbs

Worst case he's Deandre Jordan.... Best case, who knows.... would be tough to pass on him if he fell to us.

I know, dude. That's what I've been saying for a couple of weeks when I discovered he is eligible for the draft. I watched him play a couple of games during the NCAA tourney and he looked great, especially the game against Kentucky. The guy averaged 5 assists a game during the college season while playing in the frontcourt. He has a point guard skills in a PF body.

The Raps wouldn't really have any minutes to give him unless someone was shipped out via trade, because he is sort of like James Johnson and Kleiza in the sense that he could probably play SF and PF, and would also be fighting with PFs, like Davis and Bargs or Amir, for minutes at the PF spot.

If the Raps end up making a trade that involves them sending out a couple of their frontcourt players and the 8th pick while getting back a late 1st rounder in the return package, I hope the Raps consider this guy.

Royce White has a serious fear of flying on an airplane. Coach Cal apparently wanted him to recruit White to Kentucky, but when he was supposed to fly to meet Callipari, he had a panic attack and wouldn't go. Hence why he ended up at Iowa State, more low key transportation.

If he wants an NBA career, he's gonna have to get past him fear.

That fear is well publicized. He has been open about it and addressing questions at the combine. There have been a couple of articles written about his progress. The fear stems from the anticipation of getting on the plane, moreso than the flying itself. Once he gets himself on the plane, he is okay. He's been working on techniques to deal with the pre-flight jitters. There is definitely still a gamble involved, since you don't know if he'll have a random panic attack out of nowhere during the season, but that's why he is projected to go in the mid to late first round, rather than the lottery, despite having lottery talent.

small price to pay...draft him, drop as much cheddar as you need to on the best fucking shrink in North America and set that animal loose. If Lebron can become a fourth quarter champion with behavior modification then getting Royce White to take a couple extra steps onto a plane will be cake

That's the beauty of having a guy like Valanciunas to plug in when need be. Guy looks like he'll be a 75-80% FT guy.

Yeah, do you imagine White flying from Toronto to Miami, Orlando, Dallas or Los Angeles?

I can't believe teams actually don't want to draft him because he is afraid to fly.. I'm sure that with little help from psychologist he will be fine, and than he will get use to it.
