Royce White isn’t in the NBA right now, and he himself has admitted that’s a reality that may never change.
In a recent radio interview with Sirius XM’s Off The Dribble show, White (via KurtHeilin of NBC Sports’ ProBasketballTalk) was very candid about what his future may or may not hold:
White admitted there is a chance he would never play in the NBA. He said it worked in college because there were fewer games and far less travel — he had 15 flights in college, there were 96 scheduled flights for theRockets this season.
Listening to White didn’t make this sound any closer to getting dealt with. He feels that this stand is something he has to take, the Rockets are not looking like they are going to make more concessions. White may not play for this season at least, maybe longer.
Which in the end feels irrational for everyone involved.
