There have been reams and reams of words flying off the fingers of Royce White the last two months, but at this point the only thing that seems clear is that the Houston Rockets rookie forward remains unwilling to play for the team.
White on Sunday refused an assignment to the Rockets NBA Developmental League affiliate according to the Houston Chronicle, which also obtained a 463-word statement from White in which he criticized the Rockets for failing to heed the advice of his doctors. White suffers from anxiety disorder.
"... It saddens and frightens me to know that in this situation all the decision makers involved have been informed of all the medical dynamics, and yet still refuse to adhere to medical sensibility," White's statement read. "In hindsight of the recent tragedies in this country, that had mental illness variables, you would think it would encourage people to act more proactively in that arena."
This is not the first time White has refused a D-League assignment....
