03:54 PM ET 01.27 | The Houston Rockets took a big chance when they drafted Royce White out of Iowa State, but the gamble never paid off. While White reported to the Rockets, he never played a single minute for the team and as a result was traded to and waived by the Philadelphia 76ers this offseason. At the moment, Cleveland Cavaliers' first-round pick Anthony Bennett is being deemed the worst draft pick ever by some around the league, but Rockets GM Daryl Morey is claiming that, as bad as Bennett is, he's nowhere near as bad as White was.

Royce White wasn't selected #1 (16th actually) overall like Bennett was by Cleveland... Sure he was a turrible pick as Sir Charles would say... but he's nowhere near as bad a the Cavs wasting that #1 overall on Bennett???

Lol....

He said he's the worst cause he's the first non European to never play a minute after getting drafted in the first round

Understand he wants back in the league; kinda funny how he relize his money worth now that he's not in the NBA. Playing in the NBA and making that once in a lifetime salary has finally set in with Royce White, now its not that hard to get his **** **** on the plane.
