Report: Royce White did not travel to Europe with 76ers

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

We're running out of steam with covering former first-round pick Royce White. White didn't play a single game for the Rockets last season, and bucked at having to play in the D-League, feuding with the team about "treatment" for his social anxiety the whole season. White was traded to the 76ers and former Rockets assistant GM Sam Hinkie over the summer, and talked about getting things right this year.

The Sixers are headed overseas for preseason, and White had assured media he would be making the trip, despite a high level of anxiety over air travel.

Yeah... not so much.

This could be just a goodwill effort by the team, it could be a sign the team plans to waive him. It could be just a conditioning issue. But it is notable that White's first chance to start putting his career right and show he's not the problem he was in Houston has now come and gone with a miss.

I wrote about my own experiences with the condition last year, and said that there was a good chance White won't make it. That percentage keeps going up and up as White's decision making continues to compromise his NBA future.
