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

With the No. 16 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets selected Royce White from Iowa State.

White is a banger who has been popular with draft experts and scouts, but an inability to work out individually for teams due to anxiety flying threatened to drop him. But he didn't fall too far. The Rockets acquired this pick in a 2010 trade from the New York Knicks.

The Rockets picked up UConn guard Jeremy Lamb at No. 12 and also own the No. 18 pick. They do not have a center on the roster, leading many to believe that North Carolina center Tyler Zeller would have been the choice at No. 16.
