The Philadelphia 76ers have released forward Royce White, just three months after acquiring him from the Houston Rockets in a trade, reports ESPN.
The 76ers traded Furkan Aldemir and future draft considerations to the Rockets in the deal.
White was drafted 16th overall by the Rockets in 2012 but never played for the team. He averaged 5.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in five preseason games with one start for the 76ers.
Philadelphia also released Khalif Wyatt, Vander Blue and Mac Koshwal on Thursday.
