    UPDATE: 1/6/2013 at 9:55am:

    Rockets suspend Royce White for one week after he refused assignment to the D League (<a href="http://bbs.clutchfans.net/showthread.php?p=7504570#post7504570">Link</a>).

    Statement from Daryl Morey:

    "The Houston Rockets have suspended Royce White effective immediately for refusing to provide services as required by his Uniform Player Contract. We will continue to work with Royce to hopefully come to a resolution."

    Well, I guess that means he consented to it, so it's another step in the right direction.

    He might be able to play in today's game if he can drive fast enough.

    Who do we pick up if we cut Royce?

    We don't need 4 pg's on this team (assuming you mean we sign Beverly)
