White was a top prospect in the NBA Draft the year he came out, but his bouts with anxiety led to a feud with the Rockets that ended in him being acquired by the Philadelphia 76ers, where he failed to fit in. Now on to his third NBA team, there’s hope that the promising White can latch on and final have an impact in the NBA.
