    Royce White to Houston

    Apparently Royce is headed back to Houston the rest of the season.
    http://www.desmoinesregister.com/art...30321015/1003/

    My question to CFers: Is this a step closer to Royce rejoining the Rockets, as in they want him to get more game shape? Or is it a step away because they aren't having him play in the D-league anymore?

    Re: Royce White to Houston

    I'd probay say closer. For next year.

    Rockets are heading to the playoffs. They are figuring out their 8-9 man rotation that they are going into the playoffs with. Bringing in Royce and having him play would really throw off whatever cohesion they have.

    Re: Royce White to Houston

    He complained about staying in hotels. He doesn't fly and doesn't like hotels. Never going to make it

    The Rockets didn't have him come to Houston. They wanted him to stay in the D-league. Royce did it on his own. It's a step further back.

    From yesterday:

    It's probably not a step forward, and Royce isn't likely doing himself any favors.

    Royce needs to decide what he wants, I think he has many more issues then advertised

    Re: Royce White to Houston

    The NBA is no business for someone mentally ill, that has severe anxiety about flying and hotels.

    It's that simple. I still love Royce and wish him well, but he's simply not cut out for the NBA.

    I've defended Royce pretty hard in the past, but I am agreeing more and more with this.

    Re: Royce White to Houston

    How did Fred handle these problems? We didn't hear anything about any of this last year.

    I don't think we babysat him. We let him do what he wanted as long as they were still within the rules. Obviously, things are different: you go to NBA or NBDL, it was a cut throat environment, more business like: hard to find real friends as everyone competes to go to NBA and for playing time, you live in hotels instead of returning to your apartment, etc.

    Re: Royce White to Houston

    I wonder if this is the Rockets seeing if White has NBA talent, and if he does if he has enough talent that he's worth dealing with the migraine he's giving the Rockets' organization.

    He did approach being the second best guy on the team from an efficiency standpoint plus/minus. Maybe they have seen enough in D League and are planning to check him out for next year in training camp. It was the team physician who made the recommendation....
