    Henson and Lamb will end up being great pros. That draft really turned out to be deep.

    It's too soon to consider 2012 1th-round draftees busts except for one...

    Very accurate list I think. I would elevate Beal and Jones before Barnes and MKG and probably put Zeller behind Leonard, but other than that its right on.

    I still can't understand how teams let Drummond pass all the way to the 9th pick!!! That I would call simply incompetence. Lillard was a bit similar, but that can happen.

    T. Jones was a great pick. I like his work ethics and potential.

    White was the complete opposite. Not sure what Morey was thinking when he picked White.

    The Royce White pick has to be in the top 10 worst picks of all time.

    Not even close. It may have been a spectacular failure from Rockets point of view, but no where close to whiffing in the top 5.

    When you look at games/minutes played? He is not only a bust, but a bust that never made it to the court in a regular season game. How many top 16 picks can that be said of?

    didn't he had to deal with an injury? I remember he was great in playoffs as a stretch-4. I don't know if he can guard big 4s, but I liked a lot what GSW did with him.

    I'd rather have a 16th pick flame out like White than having a top 5 pick and picking the likes of Thabeet, Kandiman, Sheldon Williams, Wesley Johnson, etc. After the top 5~10 picks you're really looking at a crapshoot. And plenty of players amount to nothing. There's a reason why most picks are lottery protected and not top-20 protected.

    Royce was a gamble on greatness that didn't work. Dallas supposedly wanted him and Morey took a shot and it failed. However, if we look at Lamb who helped us get Harden and TJones who appears to be a real steal at #18, our 2012 draft provided us the foundation to help Morey orchestrate the turnaround. Get over Royce, he's off the team and out of the league--bye, bye.

    Yes, I know... OP had it spelled as "Dian." Joke fail (on my part). LOL.
