Houston Rockets Trading Royce White to the Philadelphia Sixers

To make room for Dwight Howard’s contract, and to get rid of an ongoing nightmare, the Houston Rockets will ship Royce White to Philly. The Sixers will give up future draft considerations. Per Yahoo! Sports: “The moves clears White’s $1.7 million contract for next season, giving the Rockets further flexibility to deliver a maximum contract offer to free-agent star Dwight Howard. Along with White, who clashed with the organization and never played a minute in the regular season, the Rockets will send the draft rights to an international prospect and cash. White, the 16th overall pick in the 2012 draft, has an anxiety disorder that has limited his ability to participate in the NBA. He spent most of the season suspended or playing with Houston’s D-League affiliate.”

  • shockexchange

    Completely forgot Royce White existed.

  • RunNGun

    And this folks is what you call addition by subtraction… Morey made it happen!

  • RKJ92

    Agreed, he better not act up now that he’s left Houston or he’ll have a one way ticket to play on Andray Blatche’s old YMCA mens league team rofl

    solid move, we really didn’t give up anything and Royce could be high reward with hardly any risk.

  • Vince

    He has had one helluva busy offseason so far.

  • robb

    hardly any risk? the guy’s mental issues are a big risk. Not sure what the Sixers are trying to do

  • cflip

    If he doesn’t straighten out, then oh well. It’s not as if we signed him to a big contract or traded away anything important for him, plus he has a team option, we could just let him walk in a year if he doesn’t pan out.

    How are they gonna get him on a plane to Philly?

  • LP @ThisisEther

    hardly any risk???? This MF can’t travel. The risk is huge, no matter what you traded. Extreme risk, mediocre reward.

  • LP @ThisisEther

    he’s walking

    rumor has it the new CBA only allows for one player of white or dh12 characteristics and forced HOU to make a trade.

    too bad for HOU

  • cflip

    What Risk!? We’re TANKING! We’re not fighting for the playoffs or a title right now. we didn’t give up anything, what possible damage can he seriously cause?

  • spit hot fiyah

    Thé loss of a few million dollars

  • Drig

    That’s a pretty great off-season workout to boost stamina lol

  • Roy Blumenfeld

    I wish this guy the best. He has mental health issues, but in my opinion he handled them the wrong way last season by constantly blasting the Rockets front office via twitter. That to me also signaled that he has maturity issues. He was a talented player in college and I hope he can sort everything else out in order to stay in the NBA.

    A rebuilding team giving away drafts picks for Royce white, who can only play in home games…..

  • cflip

    future draft considerations = 2nd rounder (which we collect more of when trade certain guys that aren’t likely staying) or nothing at all. We got him for free.

  • LP @ThisisEther

    I don’t know man… 2nd round picks, to me, can be so valuable…teams treat them like fortune cookies the way they give them away
