As for the embattled White, Hinkie answered a question about White’s possible role on the team generically and never mentioned White by name. An NBA source said the Rockets, who dealt him to the Sixers on July 6 along with a second-round pick and Turkish power forward Furkan Aldemir for future considerations and cash, are picking up the $1.7 million salary of White, who has an anxiety disorder and is afraid to fly. That means the Sixers have nothing invested in White — and that the 21-year-old Aldemir was the primary target in the deal, which the source confirmed. Bucks County Courier Times

There is a “good chance” Furkan Aldemir will join the Rockets next season, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. The 6-foot-9 power forward out of Turkey was acquired by the Rockets in a draft day trade after being selected by the Clippers with the 53rd pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. It was originally assumed on draft night that he would come over no sooner than 2014. Clutchfans

So the only players we're really looking at are the international players who are younger than 22 years old. This year 17 international players declared early for the 2012 NBA draft. As of Sunday night, only one international player, Turkey's Furkan Aldemir, was confirmed to be staying in the draft. Aldemir is a likely second-round selection. Sources say that France's Evan Fournier is also very likely to stay in the draft, as well. Fournier is projected to be a mid to late first-round pick. A few others including Tomas Satoransky, Josep Franch and Tornike Shengelia might also stay. However, at this point, they don't look like they have a serious shot at the first round. ESPN.com
