In his latest 2012 NBA Mock Draft at Draft Express, Jonathan Givony projects the Boston Celtics to select Royce White of Iowa State and Fab Melo of Syracuse, respectively, with the 21st and 22nd picks in the 2012 NBA Draft.
White, a 6-foot-8 power forward with perimeter skill, has been rumored to have received a promise from the Celtics if he falls to their spot in the draft. The 21-year old averaged 13.4 points, 9.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists during his lone season at Iowa State.
Melo was named the Big East Defensive Player of the Year after averaging 7.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.9 blocks during his sophomore season. The seven-footer projects as a defensive presence in the NBA, but there are questions about whether he can develop the rest of his game.
