Houston has traded Royce White to Philadelphia, league sources tell Y! Sports.

This move clears even more cap space. What does this mean for all 3 involved?

Thank god. As a Rockets fan I love that they got this narcissistic, lazy and useless scam artist off the team. He's fat and fake and has set potential athletes with anxiety (and other issues) back so many years.

They could give us a washing machine in return and we would still win this trade.

He can travel by bus to a lot of east coast games, that plus home games is what he will play without flying

what did the rockets get?

They saved about $1.75 mil of cap space.

The Rockets had to give Philly Cash and the draft rights to a foreign prospect to get them to take White.

Rockets made trade in straight salary dump. Now they have the cash outright to sign Dwight. No matter Royce White can't shoot, defend, or finish a drive. He won't be in the league a year from now.

It makes me so so so so so happy. 10 YEARS of Limbo will do this to a team. Finally we have a Plan and with Noel/Turner and all the draft picks and cap space the future is finally bright.

Ah watching the fun on there too Yosef? Shame we had to give Aldemir up as well but if it gets Royce's *** out of the city I love then so be it, I really wouldn't be surprised if he never suits up for the Sixers, he was that big of a headache and Hinkie knows the problems he caused cause he thinks he is a superstar

We went 22-60 that year, and went 1-10 to finish that season. Not sure what makes you think we didn't tank for Tim Duncan.

I'm happy we made this move. There's pretty much no risk, and the guy was a top 10 talent in last year's draft. If he and the team can work out whatever couldn't be worked out in Houston, then we make out like bandits(something that I don't think I've ever been able to say as a Sixers fan). Hopefully it all works out, if not, then no big deal.

Too bad first round draft picks have 2 years guaranteed, or else he wouldn't be in the league at all. He won't play in Philly even with them tanking hard.

royce is a legit talent, and philly literally has nothing to lose here. if it doesn't work it, it doesn't work out. but if they can straighten things out and get on the same page as him it very well is worth the gamble. they aren't looking to contend next year, so there's nothing at stake here. a change of scenery was needed.

Drummond#1
07-07-2013, 12:54 PM
IMO he will never play a minute in the NBA. He is just an expiring contract and there is zero chance he gets his team option picked up. He pissed off Morey and his former asst most likely will not give this kid a chance after what he pulled on Houston. At least other POSs like Eddie Curry played a couple seasons before robbing their teams blind.

Except Tim Tebow has already played at a high level in his sport, even taking his team to the playoffs AND winning a playoff game. Before that he was a Heisman Trophy winning 2-time National Champions.

WTF has Royce White ever won besides a Bat-Shyt Crazy Award. Don't compare this clown to Tim Tebow.
