I would love to see Royce White with the Cav's more than anything. Almost as much as seeing him stay here another year. Actually I'd much rather him stay here but oh well. I think Barnes could develop into the better player, but I think White has a lower bust rate.
Royce could be drafted higher if he can address his fear of flying. So we can literally say that sky is the limit for Royce.
HB is good but he has been playing with 5-star players that it's difficult to know how good he is.
HB is surrounded by talented players which should make it difficult for a defense to focus on him alone, yet even with that advantage he is unable to create his own shot. He is dependent on someone else setting him up to be effective on offense. He is a below average defensive player.
RW was surrounded by role players yet he made everyone better by his presence. He may lack an outside shot, but his ability to create his own offense and to create offense for his teammates is an elite and special talent. He also grew as a player from the beginning to the end of the season. He wasn't the best defensive player to start the season, but he was very impressive against some NBA bound players by the end of the season.
If I were an NBA executive, I would take the selfless RW long before the self promotional, ego driven HB. At this stage, HB looks like a potential NBA bust to a role player at best.
