By Josh Christensen, TV9 Sports
HOUSTON, Texas - The Rockets made headlines on Friday after agreeing on a contract with All-Star center Dwight Howard.
One move the Rockets made to free up some cap space was trade former first round pick and Iowa State forward Royce White to Philadelphia.
White was picked 16th overall in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Rockets. White and the organization did not see eye to eye on how to handle his anxiety disorder.
He ended up not playing a single NBA game this season. However, he did play 16 games with the Rockets D-League affiliate, Rio Grande Valley Vipers and averaged 11.4 points per game.
