But now, White is hoping to return to the NBA and finally make his regular season debut five years after being an early second-round pick. He has agreed to a training camp deal with the Phoenix Suns and he’s competing for a roster spot against players like Deonte Burton, Henry Sims, Cory Jefferson and Kyle Casey. White is hoping this is his big break that will lead to a guaranteed contract in the NBA. “I’m very motivated,” White told Basketball Insiders. “Everyone counted me out. I heard things like, ‘He’s failed throughout his whole career.’ With this opportunity, this is my chance to prove I belong in the NBA and show everyone that I’m a way better man and a way better player now than I was at 20 years old.”
White would love to make the Suns’ roster since they’re a guard-oriented team and he believes he could do well there, but he understands that he’s auditioning for 29 other teams as well. “My main focus is just getting on an NBA roster, whether it’s with Phoenix or another team,” White said. “If I do make the team in Phoenix, I think it’s a great fit and I feel like I could bring a whole lot since I’m still young but I also have experience too. … My agent, Daniel Hazan, was talking to different teams and Phoenix had a better plan for me than other teams, so we decided to go with the Suns.”
