Interesting tweets from the Clippers beat writer today that give me hope this can actually work.

Ben Bolch ‏@latbbolch
Agent Brian Brundage said Royce White has been impressed with the Clippers' willingness to understand his issues so they can help him.

Ben Bolch ‏@latbbolch
Agent Brian Brundage said Royce White does have doctor-prescribed medication he can take on flights for any anxiety that arises.

Agent Brian Brundage: "We could have 29 other teams coming to us after the summer but we’re going to have some major loyalty to the Clippers

Ben Bolch ‏@latbbolch
Agent Brian Brundage said Royce White has never said he wouldn't take a flight and would be willing to take team flights with Clippers.

Royce White's agent, Brian Brundage, said he is taking cross-country flight to Orlando and would need no special arrangements with Clippers.


The kid has a ton of talent. Hope he buys in. If him and Lance Stephenson pan out... watch out!

I think he should try the rockets first if they're interested. He owes them.

the problem is that the rockets accommodated him a lot and he still asked for more and kept saying that they weren't.

He's gone and said he needs help and that this and that...but end of the day, he kept going back to demands that teams accommodate and he didn't respond even then.

Glad that he's got his anxiety under control. But realistically, it'll be difficult for him to be a significant nba player at this point.

Except he didn't look like Lebron lite. He basically played point center and their entire offense ran through him, which is why he put up such crazy numbers. Conditioning is a HUGE issue for him, ever since he saw his friend have a heart attack doing wind sprints in high school he gets panic attacks doing any sort of cardio. While he has a natural feel for the game and good court vision, he also takes unnecessarily risky passes and bad shots just because. I'm not sure how he'll do in an up tempo system with the ball in CP3's hands, he's more of a half-court decision maker.

Not trying to be contrary, I just did a LOT of research on him during that draft, because it looked like the Pacers wanted him badly, and he might drop.

He is a head case. It is more than an anxiety problem with him. He lied his way through post draft interviews, lied to the Rockets when he got here and lied to the media about how is situation was handled.

Royce White is a big crybaby...his mental issues aside, he has got to understand that the world doesn't need to accommodate him for his situation, the NBA (Houston Rockets) recognized his talent and acknowledged it by drafting him! thats a huge blessing! if he isn't willing to meet half way, man up and try to take some responsibility and actually make an effort to maximize this opportunity? I don't see how any team can support this guy at all.
I mean I can sympathize with dude and in no way am I disregarding the fact that he has an impairment, but there are tons of people with his condition that try their best to get by every single day! they go to work, they work in schools that teach our kids, they drive the buses we travel on and maybe even enforce the law that protects us! he needs to stfu and take advantage of this blessing and play basketball...play this game that even kids can play and get paid for it.

No one should sign this clown. He's lazy and entitled. I have battled anxiety myself, and continue to do so. I have had to deal with work related anxiety issues, but in order to keep my job, I bucked up, took my meds if necessary and did what the hell I had to do to feed my family. **** Royce, he's looking for another free check.

Whatever Owner/GM is dumb enough to sign this guy, I hope they get hit with an ADA law suit when it flames out and White finds an ace lawyer with something to prove.

Sue the snot out of those clowns stating that they knew about his disability and didn't provide him with "reasonable accommodation." I would be so happy for this loser to get his settlement.

Maybe closer to Boris Diaw. The point is he's a very versatile, point PF type player who's high skill. It's weird to write him off as a PLAYER because of how he acted OFF the court, which is what people in here are doing.

No it's not. He got drafted 3 years ago and has played 9 total nba minutes. I could say "if" about anything. If Jordan Clarkson pans out as the greatest player of all time...WATCH OUT!

Due to OFF the court issues. If you watched him in college you'd see the skills.

I have a little experience with anxiety. For some it gets better the older they get and the better they understand the meds. Hopefully that is what is happening for Royce. If he has really bad anxiety it would make sense for him to wise up and play professional basketball. The real world and especially money problems with anxiety is WAY more stressful than anxiety itself.

Man I'm sure he has anxiety, but I don't know if it's as bad as he is making it sound. People with really high anxiety don't get kicked off a college basketball team for stealing from a Macy's and shoving down a security guard. The guy has been a punk long before the Rockets fiasco started.

I hope he makes it this time. I'm interested to see how good he can be in the NBA. I really liked his college game. I think Lebron Lite is pushing it. I say he was more like the equivalent of Coran Butler in college and definitely below Jamaal Mashburn in college.

Man, you really start overhyping players that somehow are connected to the Clippers. It doesn't matter how talented you are if you are dealing issues like him and being away from competitive basketball for so long. It's one thing for an NBA vet to come out of retirement and play ball because they adjusted and perfected their skills and specialties over a long time at a professional level but it's a wholly different thing for someone who came outta college and didnt even step on the pro-level and stayed away from it for this long.

Guys the nitpicking about who his game resembles is dumb. A poor man's Lebron (what I meant by lite) isn't much different skillset wise than Boris Diaw. The reason I mentioned Lebron first is because he's a lot more athletic and the same exact size/build pretty much to Lebron. Royce like Lebron/Diaw is a Point Forward who does the bulk of his team's playmaking when on the floor, and has a very versatile skillset. Obviously I'm not thinking he will be that good, just more saying his natural abilities/style. Even if he will never likely fulfill his potential.

So no I'm not trolling and no I'm not saying he's going to work out for the Clippers. I'm just stating what kind of player he was in college and sharing what his agent said. I'm right there with you guys that he's a scum for what he did to the Rockets/Sixers and he's going to need to really prove himself for me to become a fan of his if he makes the roster (which he very well may not).

To put it simply, it sucks.I am harsh sometimes. I used to have terrible anxiety myself, but I broke through bit by bit and now I am fine. Still have flare-ups, but mostly no biggie. There's more to this dude, fo'sho. Definitely thug traits, stealing, ego and whatnot. I hope Clippers don't get sucked in. They got championship contention to worry about. Put him down in the D-League, maybe.
