The amateur capologist in me returns to explain why keeping Kwame over Royce White somehow makes sense.
As we've detailed on this site, the Sixers made their first (and definitely not last) round of roster cuts, with partial/non-guaranteed players Vander Blue, Mac Koshwal, and my fellow former Temple student Khalif Wyatt hitting the road. Joining them in a bit of a shocker is Royce White, whose rookie contract and roughly $1.72 million salary was not enough to secure a roster spot. Not shocking was Royce White's response, which was to go on Twitter to compliment the team and then retweeting comments bashing the team, all the while #BeWell-ing the world at large.
That erratic, tweet-happy behavior is something of a staple for White, and ultimately could have been the reason for his cut. On top of the lackluster defense and less than perfect shape, the team may have decided he wasn't worth keeping around.
But why then would Kwame Brown be worth a roster spot? Kwame has not practice...
