A few months ago, former Cyclone Royce White announced that he was training to be an MMA fighter. The 16th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft also made a point to make it known that he was not retiring from basketball.
We had a somewhat significant Royce White sighting on Wednesday night.
White, who most recently had basketball success north of the border in Canada, was the first pick in the 2019 “Big 3” draft.
For those curious Big 3 players make roughly 10-12k per game and play 8 regular season games. Plus a share of all league revenue. Not a bad Summer job. https://t.co/3dxuiR1iV7

The Big 3 is entering its third season of play and was founded by the rapper Ice Cube. It has a national television deal with CBS Sports and features former pros that have had different levels of success in the NBA.
White’s team, “The Enemies,” consists of Lamar Odom, Gilbert Arenas, Perry Jones III, Craig Smith and Frank Robinson.
The No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, Greg Oden, was notably selected seventh on Wednesday night. Former Kansas Jayhawk and two-time NBA champion Mario Chalmers was selected as well.
