Royce White and the Houston Rockets are closing in on an agreement for the rookie's return to the team, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen.
White's appearances on ESPN's Outside the Lines and HBO's Real Sports championing his tance that the Rockets need to take care of mental health issues the same way they do physical injuries apparently didn't hurt his standing with the franchise.
According to Feigen, White would report to the Rockets' D-League affiliate on February 11.
"According to a person with knowledge of the plan, the Rockets are
close to making an announcement in which White would return to the team
under a written agreement that includes key elements of the protocols
that White wanted to have as an addendum to his contract," Feigen reported. "Under the agreement, writing with input from the NBA and the NBPA,
White would resume workouts to prepare for the D-League assignment."
White has incredible potential.
