Royce White Cut By the Philadelphia Sixers

All told, Royce White seemed to take the news in stride when it was reported that he was among those waived by the Sixers. Per the Delaware County Daily County Times: “Khalif Wyatt sat in the 76ers’ locker room Wednesday, before their preseason finale, and said he was still living in Norristown, his hometown, with his mother. He had expressed a desire to wait until he earned a roster spot with the Sixers before he bought his own place. Then Thursday’s news trickled down. The 76ers released Wyatt and fellow guard Vander Blue and forwards Royce White and Mac Koshwal Thursday night, according to a league source. The team has until Monday at 5 p.m. to make at least one more cut, to be in compliance with league guidelines, prior to Wednesday’s season opener. Three of the Sixers’ cuts are somewhat surprising, as Wyatt and Blue were believed to be competing for the same job, and White, who has had a brief yet tumultuous run in the NBA, appeared to have found a home. Sixers coach Brett Brown hinted that the first round of cuts would come Thursday.”
