Royce White is ready to play in the NBA, probably for the Philadelphia 76ers, once the trade from Houston becomes official. But making 100 plane flights during a season? "Hell no," the former Iowa State basketball star said after playing for the Walnut Creek YMCA Wednesday night in the YMCA Capital City League at Valley Southwoods Freshman High School. "One hundred flights would be like if you're allergic to peanut butter – it'd be like spreading your whole body with it." USA Today Sports

"Anything can happen between now and (the season)," White said. "It's every intention of mine to play. "I don't know what Philly's intentions are. I'm just going to go there, work hard and try to earn my place." USA Today Sports

Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant had a response for Royce White’s Twitter observation that he and the Thunder looked “Shaaakyy.” “Who’s he?” Durant said. When told that White is the Rockets rookie first-round pick from Iowa State, Durant seemed to remember. “I haven’t seen him on the bench,” Durant said. “He hasn’t played against us so I’m not worried about guys that’s not even in our series. Ain’t that the guy that can’t, that’s afraid to fly? I wish him the best. If I see him next year, I’ll let him know who we are.” Houston Chronicle
