Royce White

  1. Philadelphia waives Royce White, among others

    Oct 24, 2013, 8:47 PM EDT

    Royce White

    When the Sixers traded for Royce White back in July — surrendering the draft rights to international prospect Furkan Aldemir, future considerations and cash — there was some buzz around the league the Sixers were more interested in Aldemir than White, who was just a salary. That appears to be the case. White was one…

  2. Brett Brown: 76ers’ have just six NBA players

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Brett Brown, Daniel Orton

    Many advanced stats, in basketball and other sports, rely on a concept called a replacement player. A replacement player is a hypothetical player who can easily be obtained to fill out the roster. In his definition of an NBA replacement player, Kevin Pelton says a team of replacement players would win 10 games in a…

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

  4. Royce White makes preseason debut for Sixers

    Oct 12, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Royce White

    The Royce White saga entered a new chapter on Friday, when the troubled former first round draft pick of the Rockets made his debut for the Sixers. Although it was only the preseason, it marked the first time White had played NBA minutes this year (he did play in the preseason last year). He struggled…

  5. Royce White expected to play for Sixers Friday

    Oct 10, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    Royce White

    Call me skeptical, I want to see him out on the court, but we may see Royce White playing a little for Philadelphia this season. White could play his first game as a Sixer Friday, in a preseason game against the Celtics. At least that’s the plan, reports the Philadelphia Daily News. Originally the plan…

  6. Royce White didn’t fly with Sixers to Europe

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Royce White

    Right now, the Philadelphia 76ers are in one of the world’s most interesting cities, Bilbao, Spain. From there they will travel on to Manchester, England, (which is kind of interesting) to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder. Royce White is not with them. White battles an general anxiety disorder — which has a number of…

  7. Sixers’ Arnett Moultrie out until January after ankle surgery

    Sep 27, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Arnett Moultrie, Ben Gordon

    Following up on a rookie season where he played pretty well in a very limited role, Arnett Moultrie was going to get his chance at the start of the year to prove he could be key to the rebuilding Sixers, getting big minutes at the four. Now he is out until the new year following…

  8. Royce White to participate in media day and training camp with Sixers

    Sep 25, 2013, 10:46 PM EDT

    Royce White

    Royce White was selected with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft by the Houston Rockets, but never played a single game for the team. White suffers from an anxiety disorder, the details of which he has no hesitation making public with very little prodding. It comes with it a fear of flying,…

  11. Philadelphia 76ers will likely bring 20 players to training camp

    Aug 31, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    Khalif Wyatt, Christian Watford

    The Philadelphia 76ers currently have 14 players listed on their roster, though it sounds as though there will be a few more new faces on the team when training camp gets started. As in at least six new faces because new general manager Sam Hinkie would like to take 20 players to training camp and…

  12. Royce White might not be wanted in Philadelphia

    Aug 31, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Rockets White Basketball

    The Philadelphia 76ers traded for Royce White in early July, sending just “future considerations” to the Houston Rockets in order to acquire the 2012 first-round pick and Turkish prospect Furkan Aldemir. It turns out that the little-known Aldemir, not the embattled White, was apparently the object of the Sixers’ affection. It made sense for new…

  13. Royce White helps open mental health center in Houston

    Aug 29, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Royce White

    Royce White has been clear from the start that he wanted to help change the perception of people battling mental illness. He was the No. 16 pick by the Houston Rockets in the 2012 draft but the potential point forward (he had those kinds of skills coming out of college) has never played a second…

  14. Sixers need to add $10 million in salary to make minimum

    Aug 23, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    We talk a lot about the salary cap and luxury tax on this site, the numbers farther up the NBA play ladder, but there is a floor, too — teams need to have at least 90 percent of the salary cap filled, or $52.81 million on the books this season. With the addition of Tony…

  16. 76ers finally ready to enter free-agent marketplace

    Aug 2, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    The 76ers, for my money, had one of the best offseasons in the NBA. Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first-round pick was a great trade, one that gave Philadelphia clear direction. In their rebuilding efforts, the 76ers made a few other small moves: drafting Michael Carter-Williams, trading for Royce White and Furkan…

    James Anderson, Quincy Pondexter

    Sam Hinkie is turning the 76ers into the Rockets of the East. The former Houston executive vice president of basketball operations and new Philadelphia general manager already traded for Royce White and Furkan Aldemir. Now, Hinkie is adding two more Rockets.

  18. Royce White making 100 flights in a season? ‘Hell no,’ he says

    Jul 13, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Rockets White Basketball

    The Rockets knew what they were getting when they drafted Royce White, and even more so, the 76ers knew what they were getting when they traded for him. White is, I think, a talented player, but I can’t say that with much certainty, because he’s never played in the NBA. His anxiety issues, which include…

  20. Report: Rockets trade Royce White to the Sixers

    Jul 5, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Royce White

    This is almost better news for the Rockets than the report that Dwight Howard has agreed to sign in Houston. Royce White, the talented but troubled first round draft pick of the Rockets in 2012, has been traded to the Sixers, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Philadelphia will receive the draft rights to international…

  21. Dwight Howard signing just the beginning for Rockets

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Darryl Morey has done the hardest job, getting Dwight Howard to sign with the Rockets. Now the Houston general manager has even more moves ahead. The Rockets don’t have cap room to give Howard a max contract, so Morey must either convince Howard to take less money, arrange a sign-and-trade with the Lakers or change…

  22. Rockets don’t have enough cap room to give Dwight Howard a max contract

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets Patrick Beverly attempts to steal the ball from Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Rockets do not have enough cap room to give Dwight Howard a max contract. They could waive all four of their players with fully unguaranteed contracts – Greg Smith, Patrick Beverley,Tim Ohlbrecht and James Anderson – and they still wouldn’t have enough cap room. If Howard chooses Houston, perhaps as early as today, the…

    Dwight Howard wants the Rockets to add a third star, and Josh Smith is Houston’s backup plan to Howard. It was only a matter of time until these plans merged.

    Remember after the Rockets took Game 5 from the Thunder — forcing tonight’s Game 6 in Houston — Rockets draft pick Royce White (who has not played with the team all season) took to twitter to taunt Durant, saying “y’all are looking SHAAAKYY BAAAABYY.” I would say Kevin Durant fired back on Friday, but that…
