Drafted by the Rockets with the 16th pick at the 2012 NBA Draft, Royce White was lauded as a solid choice that could end up being one of the best value picks in the draft.
That kind of hype had Houston fans looking forward to seeing the skills of the point forward in action.
Those same fans are still waiting to see those skills in action.
White's well-documented anxiety disorder in regard to flying scared some NBA teams away from drafting him. Logistically, teams felt his needs were going to be too tough to accommodate, or they might run the risk of not being able to accommodate him.
Credit the Rockets for being willing to take on that task and wanting to help White be comfortable enough to contribute to the team.
But everything since then has crumbled to the ground. White has yet to appear in a game for the Rockets and things got ugly on both sides. The dispute became public, and both sides were left wiping egg off their face.
According to CBS Sports, a resolution appears to be in place, and White will get back on the court soon, albeit for Houston's D-League team, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
If everything works out and White begins to play in the second half of the season, he could prove quite fruitful for the Rockets. His combination of size and skill would help any roster.
But as far as what has transpired to this point this season, both White and the Rockets get a failing grade.
