2012 NBA Draft Results: Rockets Select Royce White With No. 16 Pick

With their second selection, the Houston Rocket drafted Iowa State forward Royce White with the No. 16 overall pick.

The 6-foot-8, 261-pound White has been called a "point-forward" because of his size and athleticism. He led Iowa State in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and blocks per game last season.

He isn't great on the defensive end, and made headlines recently with his fear of flying on airplanes. He also had some off-the-court issues in college. But he's a versatile talent that some thought could get into the lottery. He can play several positions, which can be both a strength and a weakness.
