Rookie forward Royce White is close to returning to the Rockets and to reporting to their D-League affiliate. In a call in to a morning show on 97.9 The Box, White said he plans to report to the D-League on Feb. 11, pending “paper work” on a plan with the team.
Morey would not comment on any plan with the team. When told of White’s comments on Wednesday, Morey said, “We’re in constant communication with Royce and hope to get him back in the fold soon.”
White seemed optimistic that the agreement would be in place shortly. “The resolution, when I say we’re in the 12th hour, what I literally mean is we’re in the 12th hour…any hour now this thing will be over,” White said.
