From what I've read, he's a very solid player, but they don't know how he'll handle the more physical centers in the NBA. Some scouts also don't think he's got a high ceiling like Meyers Leonard. Zeller's a center. He's not quick enough to play the PF position, IMO.

White is one of my faves. I truly feel like he'll be a top 15 pick when it's all said and done.

Same here and heard he is doing very well in team interviews.

Hes white

lol
he lacks strength especially at the center position
doesn't have a lot of upside compared to other players in this draft
doesn't have elite anything, but is solid or good at most things

and hes white
but he'll still probably be a lottery pick

Need some insight, The Rockets have the 14th and 16th picks overall in the 2012 draft, now I have heard rumors of a Center, SG and PG at those spots. Who are the top guys who likely be available at 14 and 16?

I hear Meyers Leonard, Tyler Zeller, Jared Sullinger, then Deon Waiters, among others.
Anyone think the new Memphis Grizzlies' owner Robert J. Pera, BILLIONAIRE out of California, will consider relocating the team? I've heard the rumor before that San Jose is interested in a basketball team but it seems unlikely considering SoCal and NorCal both have two teams each already.

Thoughts?

So basically he is the new tyler hansborough? So he will be a solid bench hustle player.
