ESPN’s Chad Ford just announced on Twitter that Danny Ainge has bestowed a promise ring to Iowa State forward Royce White and they’ve agreed to wait until the Celtics pick in the first round to make their nuptials official.
In this age-old battle of who has the better sources, it really comes down to who you want to believe. My eyes tell me Amick because his Twitter background is him sitting in a relatively empty TD Garden looking deep in thought.

Now you may know White already if you watched the Michael Schmitz scouting video over at DraftExpress (embedded below). If you don’t know White here are some bigger points of interest:

You may have noticed that I listed him as a “forward” above and also claimed that White has “good size”. To clarify: Royce isn’t laterally quick enough to really be a small forward but has a ton of guard skills yet the thickness to guard centers. He’d be a beast in a small lineup.
