James White the 4th is 6 foot 7 inches and 205 pounds. James signed a guaranteed contract with the NY Knicks this summer after NY brought him in for a private work out. James was scouted in Europe, where he has built a solid career and fine-tuned his skills. However, the real question is, will James have a roll in the rotation or will he be warming the bench. James attended Florida University and seemed to have a growing role as freshmen. The following year, James transferred to the U of Cincinnati where he started for 3 consecutive years. His scoring average rose every year and topped off at 16.3 a game. He was drafted 31st in the second round of the 2006 NBA draft. His draft team was the Portland Trailblazers, but his rights were traded to Indiana where he was given a chance. Roster spots for 2nd rounder’s are non-guaranteed so, Indiana had some tough choices to make and White was one of their last cuts to make and a difficult one it was. White signed a 2 year deal with the Spurs and was assigned to their D-League team. He was up and down in the 2006/7 season and was eventually waived in the summer of 2007. Looking to get regular playing time and make a living, James left for Europe and the Middle East. He joined the Turkish club Fenerbahce and helped them to the Euro League playoffs. In 2009 James joined the Anaheim D-League franchise and eventually signed with the Rockets on a 10 day contract. He impressed enough to sign a multi-year deal with Houston. In early fall of 2009 James was traded to Denver for the rights to a Belgian born player. He was waived by the Nuggets in October of 2009. Click here! to Read More...
