The Houston Rockets and their rookie Royce White have come to some sort of agreement on the treatment and coure of action for dealing with his anxiety disorder. Royce was serving an indefinite suspension which began January 6th but has been reinstated by the team. White will begin his return to the team via the Rockets D League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
Houston Rockets and Royce White have today reached an agreement that addresses the major issues that they have been discussing, provides a new start, and gives Royce the best opportunity for long term success as a Houston Rocket.
This has been a learning process for both parties.
The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association have approved the settlement.
Royce is no longer suspended and is re-instated effective immediately.
He will report to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers on February 11, 2013.
I’m curious to see how this all develops. To be honest, I thought the groundwork was being laid for a potential lawsuit from White’s side. I can’t imagine things are just done and we won’t hear more about the two sides being at odds. White recently appeared on HBO’s “Real Sports” to discuss his anxiety and what he expected of the Rockets.
