Romello White is an athletic, energetic big man that recently declared to enter the 2021 NBA Draft. He has been a solid collegiate role player for both Arizona State and Mississippi, and he was fairly productive in his role for them throughout his collegiate career.
Unfortunately, it may be tough for him to transition his game to adjust to the rigors of the NBA. He seems to fit the mold of a classic tweener, as he doesn’t possess much of an outside shot nor possesses the ideal playmaking skills to play the three, but he is also undersized to play the four. Currently, he may be a long shot to be drafted, but his ability to score and rebound in the paint could allow him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA.
