    Re: RW - Slate interview - expands on his "protocol"......

    So from my understanding, he wants a medical assistant to come in and make all decisions regarding the health of a player? Example of like when doctors told Knicks head coach Amare should play less minutes because his leg that was operated on was sore? In this case the doctor would have the head call of pulling Amare instead of letting it become the coaches call. If this is the case then I really don't have an issue with it.

    Re: RW - Slate interview - expands on his "protocol"......

    from what I could pull out of that it looks like he wants a seperate contract for GP instead of the internist to be making the calls for requirements/treatments/accommodations - but I feel like it's much further than that for the moves he's been making recently.

    is that even allowed within the CBA? I know it says he has support from the player's association... but that probably doesn't mean very much.

    The problem is under his contract that it's illegal to change on a dime. Under the CBA.

    Re: RW - Slate interview - expands on his "protocol"......

    Per the USA Today article from Sunday: Rockets suspend rookie forward Royce White ...
    According to the uniform player contract detailed in the CBA, "no amendments to the form of the Uniform Player Contract provided for by Section 1 of this Article shall be permitted," and if a team or player agree on such an amendment, "such Contract or subsequent amendment, as the case may be, shall be disapproved by the Commissioner, and consequently, rendered null and void."

    Where is Royce's agent in all of this?
