Former first-round pick Royce White has signed a deal with a team in the Canadian League.
White has played in only three regular-season games, as a member of the Kings back in 2014. He's only 25 years old, so time is still on his side, but it's becoming less and less likely that White will fulfill his potential and make it back to the NBA. Fri, Dec 9, 2016 09:55:00 AM

Royce White is in significant discussions with the semipro Las Vegas Dealers.

"Ultimately I believe I can play in the NBA and I want to do whatever I can to get back there," White said. "I'm 24 and to this point my career has had little to do with my ability. There's a lot of misinformation out there that I require a lot of special accommodations and that's not the case. I'm willing to fly, and flew several times to play in Orlando this past summer." White was pretty disappointing during the summer league with the Clippers, but we will let you know if he pops up on the NBA radar again. Former first-round pick David Harrison recently agreed to join the Dealers as well, so it's an interesting mix of players to say the least.

Royce White stated during a recent interview, that while he doesn't particularly enjoy flying, it's not something that he absolutely will not do.

White has indeed flown with his previous three NBA teams, and most recently flew out to Orlando to join the Clippers' Summer League team, so he's obviously willing to fly if he has to. However, he's been a no show at Summer League thus far, and if he continues to be largely ineffective on the basketball court, it's unlikely the Clippers extend him a contract offer despite their dire need for a big man after losing DeAndre Jordan via free agency.

Royce White was a non-factor in eight minutes for the Clippers on Sunday, going scoreless with two rebounds, two turnovers and two personal fouls.

He was just as ineffective on Saturday and at this rate he won't be invited to a team's training camp, let alone earn a guaranteed contract.

Royce White missed one shot from the field and both from the line against the Magic on Saturday, adding two assists, two turnovers and no rebounds.

He looked to be in shape, but he just wasn't active on either end. White is going to have to improve to even get a training camp invite.

Royce White is willing to take a cross-country flight with the Clippers and would need "no special arrangements," according to his agent.

This is likely to fly under-the-radar, but it's actually a pretty notable development in White's desire to really begin his NBA career. We'll see what he looks like in Summer League with the Clippers. White's agent also added that his client has prescribed medication he can take for his anxiety.

Royce White will play for the Clippers during the Orlando Summer League.

A few other teams showed interest in White but he opted to play for L.A., whose executives have reportedly gained his trust in recent weeks. He hopes to earn a contract after Summer League but it's far from certain that the 24-year-old will be on an active NBA roster when the season starts.

Royce White is reportedly closing in on a commitment to join the Clippers Summer League team in July.

White has received interest from the Spurs, Pelicans, and Bulls but a conversation with the Clippers' front office officials reportedly has earned White's trust, so he will likely be sporting a Clippers jersey at Summer League. However, White has made it clear he will not be signing any free agent contracts before Summer League, as he'd prefer to showcase himself for all 30 NBA teams. He has a lot of talent, but so far that has not translated at the NBA level. He'll be an interesting name to watch this offseason, but right now, he's well off the standard league radar.

The Bulls and Pelicans have reportedly emerged as suitors for Royce White as he attempts an NBA comeback.

In addition to the Bulls and Pelicans interest, White also reportedly has offers from both the Clippers and Spurs to play for their Summer League squads, and he'll be an interesting guy to watch this offseason. However, he'd need to land in an ideal situation in order to gain any sort of relevancy in fantasy leagues, and none of the aforementioned teams would present that opportunity.

Royce White reportedly has offers to play in summer league from both the Clippers and the Spurs.

White has been working out in order to return to the NBA, but he's been doing so out of the public eye and without the attention he once received. A talented basketball player, White could thrive in the right situation, but we're a long way from that point.

Royce White will play for the Clippers’ Summer League team this offseason.

White is only 24-years-old, and he has the talent to be at least a marginal role player at the NBA level. However, severe issues with anxiety and a fear of flying have made him a difficult guy to roster. If he impresses at Summer League, there might be a team out there willing to gamble on him, but he's not a guy that likely to have much, if any fantasy value. This will be an interesting story to watch this offseason.

The Kings will not re-sign Royce White for the rest of the regular season.

They will max out their 15-man roster by inking Jared Cunningham on Monday, leaving White to look elsewhere for temporary employment. Kings writer Jason Jones reports that the team's coaches and management were impressed by White, but felt that it was imperative to sign a guard.
Mon, Mar 31, 2014 09:46:00 AM

Royce White's second 10-day contract with the Kings expired on Wednesday.

The Kings will now have to decide whether to sign White to a contract for the rest of the season or allow him to become a free agent. We'll update this situation once the Kings make a decision, but White has only played nine total minutes over three games with the Kings and can be safely left on fantasy waiver wires.

Royce White made his NBA debut for the Kings on Friday in a one-minute appearance.

White's conditioning is an issue and it's unrealistic to expect him to step into the NBA and be productive right off the bat. Because he tends to pass rather than shoot he is intriguing fit at power forward with liabilities Reggie Evans and Quincy Acy getting regular minutes, but playing next to two catch-and-hold guys in DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay his talents get somewhat negated by playing styles. Look for him to get a chance to show his stuff one way or another.

Royce White has completed his four-game stint with the Reno Bighorns of the D-League.

White finished his last game with the Bighorns with 14 points, one rebound, three assists, and three steals in 26 minutes. He will now travel to Sacramento as the Kings finish their seven-game road trip that ends Sunday. White's 10-day contract with the Kings coincidentally ends this weekend, so his future with the team is currently up in the air. Reno coach Joel Abelson was pleased with White's work and thinks he'll get the opportunity to join the Kings, but there is little value for fantasy owners here even if the 22-year-old sticks with Sacramento.
