Rockets demote Royce White to D-League, feud continues

The Rockets and their 2012 draft pick Royce White have been at odds for weeks now. White has repeatedly claimed that the Rockets are holding his anxiety disorder against him and not supporting him.

He's also claimed the Rockets are using his anxiety to keep him off the court, while the Rockets management has said that the other players have earned their playing time and White has not.

The 6-foot-8 White was expected to be a wildcard pick in the 2012 draft because of his anxiety. Now the team has demoted White to the D-league after he allegedly skipped a practice without warning, although White has tweeted against that claim as well:

With all the back-and-forth between the team and White, it seems unlikely that these differences will be resolved soon.
