James White has signed with Cedevita Zagreb of Croatia.
While White is a gifted athlete, he's been unable to make an impact in the NBA and will now continue his career in Croatia. The 32-year-old is unlikely to play in the NBA again after logging just 67 games in his career and can be ignored by fantasy owners. Thu, Jul 30, 2015 01:57:00 PM

Reggio Emilia is trying to convince James White to re-sign with the team for next season.

His only real impact in the NBA came in the dunk contest and he has played 8.7 minutes per game during his 67 NBA contests. Even though his Italian contract expires at the end of the month, Flight White's days in the NBA are probably numbered.

James White has reached an agreement with Reggio Emila in Italy.

His biggest highlight was in the dunk contest and played just 7.4 minutes per game last season. White did go out with a bang in the regular season with a 20-point game while the Knicks rested up for the playoffs, so he should have some success with the inferior talent.

James White met with representatives of Maccabi Tel Aviv in Las Vegas this week, and he's also 'explored' playing in China.

White won a championship with the Spurs in 2006-07, despite appearing in only six games that season. His greatest NBA success came last season with New York, when he averaged nearly eight minutes in 57 appearances, and all signs point to him heading back overseas.

Knicks waive G/F James White.

His agent informed the media yesterday that White would be headed out of NYC and that his client has received interest from other teams and to play in China. White's biggest impact came in the dunk contest and the 30-year-old swing man wasn't in the rotation for most of the season.

The Knicks have declined the team option on James White for next season, according to White's agent.

White's agent added that there's some interest among NBA teams and he's negotiating with Chinese teams. James "Flight" White played just nine minutes in the playoffs and was only used as an emergency player throughout the season. He won't have any fantasy value.

James White's agent said it's "unlikely" his client will return to the Knicks.

We'll file that under "obvious." White was glued to the bench for the majority of the season and it's not clear how he lasted with the team for the entire year. White's $1 million option is expected to be declined, and it's possible he'll go back overseas if he can't garner an offer in the NBA.

James White will be deactivated for Tuesday's Game 4 vs. the Pacers.

This will have no impact on the outcome of the game, but it could be a sign that J.R. Smith (illness) is expected to play.

James White got his 15th start of the season on Monday and scored a career-high 15 points with seven boards, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes.

We recapped his goose egg yesterday just to give everyone a heads up that he could have a nice game today and he didn't disappoint. If the Knicks rest everyone again on Wednesday, White could score in the teens and might be a spot-start again for deep leagues.

James White didn't score in his three minutes of action on Sunday.

The Knicks are going to rest some guys, so this is just a heads up for deep-league owners looking for an extra spot-start on Monday. He will likely get 20 minutes vs. Charlotte. Adjust accordingly.

The Knicks could cut or buy out James White in order to add another point guard to the roster, a source told ESPN New York.

The report throws out names like Delonte West and Sundiata Gaines, but it doesn't sound like anything is imminent at this time. Apparently, the Knicks need a fourth point guard to add to the mix of Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni.

League sources confirm to ESPN NY's Jared Zwerling that James White will participate in the dunk contest during All-Star weekend.

White's dunking skills are the stuff of YouTube legend. He might be the prohibitive favorite heading into the contest even if returning champ Jeremy Evans participates this year. Hopefully White's mind-bending athleticism will finally help make the dunk contest watchable again, but we're not holding our breath.

James White will get the start Thursday night against the Celtics.

With Ronnie Brewer out of the rotation, the Knicks have been experimenting with their starting lineups until Raymond Felton (pinkie) returns. White is expected to match up with Paul Pierce while Carmelo Anthony slides over to PF and matches up with, you guessed it, Kevin Garnett.

James White will make his third start at shooting guard on the season for the Knicks on Friday.

Ronnie Brewer played just eight minutes on Thursday and he hasn't really done much to deserve the starting distinction he held to this point. James White has very little fantasy value in even the deepest of leagues.

James White will start at shooting guard in Friday's game against the Bulls.

It looks like Mike Woodson has seen enough of Ronnie Brewer for now. White goes from a DNP-CD on Thursday to a starting role Friday. In two starts earlier this year, the journeyman defensive specialist averaged 3.0 points in 13.6 minutes.
