Royce White: GM’s, Rockets ‘want me gone’
Royce White, recently reinstated after a months-long dispute with Houston’s management over the treatment of his mental health, said this week that he believes the NBA and the Rockets would prefer to move on without him.
In a video interview with The Huffington Post, White, who was recently assigned to the Rockets’ D-League affiliate, explained his reasoning, citing his independent voice and the inefficiency of properly treating players with mental health conditions.
“If I was to make an educated guess, I would guess that Adam Silver and David Stern and the Rockets organization, some other owners in the league, GMs, want me gone. And why do they want me gone? Because business is about convenience, it’s not about doing what’s necessary, right? It’s about cutting overhead… Being efficient. And a lot of times, what’s best for us as human beings doesn’t meet that criteria for business people.”
