Royce White: ‘This Was an NBA Legislative and CBA Issue’
Royce White has never played a game in the NBA.
Yet, his story has been publicized and debated as if he's a household name.
White, drafted by the Houston Rockets 16th overall in 2012 suffers from an anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder, disputed with the Rockets multiple times on the dealings with his mental health illnesses.
In early January the team suspended him without pay for failing to perform his contract, followed by an announcement in March that White and the Rio Grande Valley Vipers the Rockets D-League affiliate would be parting ways.
White is expected to be a member of the Sixers this week after a trade is announced sending him along with the rights to Turkish forward Furkan Aldemir in exchange for draft considerations.
White joined Mike Gill and Todd Ranck Monday on "The Sportsbash" to talk about his progression through his mental health issues and whether or not he anticipates playing in the NBA this season.
White talks about his continued efforts in changing the protocol the NBA and other organizations use when faced with issues similar to the ones that he suffers with.
