10:07 AM ET 08.31 | Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie answered a question about Royce White's possible role on the team generically and never mentioned White by name. An NBA source said the Rockets, who dealt him to the Sixers on July 6 along with a second-round pick and Turkish power forward Furkan Aldemir for future considerations and cash, are picking up the $1.7 million salary of White, who has an anxiety disorder and is afraid to fly. That means the Sixers have nothing invested in White -- and that the 21-year-old Aldemir was the primary target in the deal, which the source confirmed.

Hell, for a lot less than $1.7 million, he can buy a bus.

Who Cares....I wish him well but I wish he would go away.

This guy doesn't belong in the NBA. Some day when he's watching the french fries cook at work he will realize what an opportunity he squandered.

He better start looking for a Sugar Mamma Bro!

Saw him play a couple of times, didn't really understand the hype. But if the young man has skills he really needs to do everything within his power to conquer this disorder or he will have one of the shortest NBA careers of any player that was drafted.
