A team is only going to accommodate Royce White's schedule if he can bring something to the table. And there's only so long it will wait to see results.
The Houston Rockets already reached their threshold. If it doesn't work out in Philadelphia, I can't imagine there's going to be a long line of coaches waiting at White's door.
"So, he's a hassle, costs money and has no NBA production to show for it," seems like a logical thing for a general manager to say before choosing to look elsewhere for a forward.
White's feud with the Rockets was exactly what so many teams wanted to avoid when passing him on draft day. He's a unique individual with an equally unique game, but the amount of extra baggage he comes with might not be worth the fee.
He'll suit up for the Sixers this preseason, and with Arnett Moultrie out til at least January, there's a real opportunity here for White to get his career on track.
