The Philadelphia 76ers have released Royce White three months after acquiring him from the Houston Rockets in a trade, according to several reports. The NBA career of Royce White has been a complicated one, to put it mildly. White, a first-round pick at 16th overall in 2012 who never played for the Rockets, averaged 5.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in five preseason games with one start for the 76ers. However, as reported by Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News and Sam Moore of Calkins Media, White was waived by the team on Thursday as part of its last cuts before their season opener next Wednesday. The Rockets suspended White on Jan. Big forwards with passing, rebounding, and scoring skills don't come along very often.
