NBA Draft 2012: Royce White, Jordan Taylor To Work Out For Wolves On Tuesday

According to a report by Jerry Zgoda from the Startribune.com, Minnesota natives Royce White and Jordan Taylor will be working out for the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center on Tuesday. White is an interesting figure because he has displayed that he can play at the next level but has unique off-court issues (such as an anxiety disorder that includes a fear of flying) that make him a question mark come draft day.

Without the off-court issues, White is probably a top-10 pick but he has been projected as potentially being on the board as long as pick 20. With the Wolves picking at No. 18, the team may decide to add White to utilize him as a wingman who can handle the ball.

In terms of Taylor, he was Mr. Basketball at Benilde-St. Margaret's in 2008 (coincidentally, he won the award a year before White won the honor at Hopkins High in 2009).

He is looking to prove he can play at the next level.

Courtesy of the StarTribune.com:

"I'm excited. I'm always self motivated. Ever since I was a kid, they told me I was too small, too slow, can't shoot, whatever it is. I can play this game pretty well."
