    Re: Royce traded to Sixers

    nvm, found this

    The Houston Rockets have agreed to trade 2012 first-round pick Royce White to the Philadelphia 76ers for future draft considerations, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

    The moves clears White's $1.7 million contract for next season, giving the Rockets further flexibility to deliver a maximum contract offer to free agent star Dwight Howard.

    Along with White, who clashed with the organization and never played a minute in the regular season, the Rockets will send the draft rights to an international prospect and cash.

    White, the 16th overall pick in the 2012 draft, has an anxiety disorder that has limited his ability to participate in the NBA. He spent most of the season suspended or playing with Houston's D-League affiliate.


    ​so pretty much nothing.

    Houston is clearing cap space for Dwight. That is it.

    They paid Philly to take him. Maybe they do have a plan, but this does not mean they are attached to him.

    Well, cap space, which is pretty much the order of their day right now.

    No one losing in this deal, since Philly didn't give up anything, and Houston got the center they wanted.

    Royce White to 76ers

    Looks like Royce is on the move to Philly. I find this interesting, mainly because a team is going to be picking him up. Maybe they feel that they would be able to meet his needs that he is asking for. Should be an interesting story to follow.

    Re: Royce traded to Sixers

    1) Philly isn't a city for an athlete such as Royce. Very tough fans that expect championships every year, could be a good thing for Royce, could be bad.

    2) Philly is gonna suck next year and Royce has a great chance for playing time.

    Re: Royce traded to Sixers

    I don't see this as a good thing...
    1. Philly Media, enough said
    2. Philly fans, also enough said.

    This is the fan base that threw snowballs at santa for christs sake!

    3) Houston has no playing time for Royce either, especially if the rumors that Josh Smith is going to be a Rocket are true.

    A fresh start for Royce is needed for both sides. He gets a clean slate and if he gets playing time he'll be happier and have an easier adjustment to the league.

    The point about Philly fans being brutal on players they don't believe are performing it 100% correct. This isn't the most ideal for Royce it is situation but it could work. After all he no longer isn't a Teams First round draft pick that isn't performing, he is a flyer for future considerations. He shouldn't have much if any, expectations from fans in Philly on day one.

    Re: Royce traded to Sixers

    If Doug Collins is still the coach, he doesn't play guys without NBA experience. I don't expect Royce to see the floor.

    Yeah, should be interesting. Plenty of time to change people's perceptions of him

    Re: Royce traded to Sixers

    Also, the posters at clutchfans.net couldn't be much giddier right now.

    Obviously, the Dwight Howard news has them going crazy. The Royce to Philly thread was already up to 242 posts a little bit ago. They're pretty happy about everything right now.
