Houston Rockets Have Suspended Royce White

by January 06, 2013

And the Royce White Saga continues. ESPN reports the Rockets have suspended the 6-8 rookie for “refusing to provide services” required by the contract he signed when he joined the team: “The Houston Rockets have suspended first-round pick Royce White for ‘refusing to provide services’ required by his contract. General manager Daryl Morey said Sunday that the team will continue to work with White in hopes of finding a resolution. Last week, White refused his assignment to Houston’s D-League affiliate. The 16th overall pick in the June draft has spent most of the season on Houston’s inactive list while he and the team figure out how to handle his anxiety disorder and overall mental health.”
