Sixers Cut the Only Entertaining Player They Had

Goodbye to the man who refuses to take airplanes.

Royce White

Royce White, the enigmatic philosopher king with an anxiety disorder that prevents him from taking airplanes, has tragically been cut from the Sixers’ roster.

He did not join the team on a recent trip to Spain; whether his apparent refusal to do so ended his chances with the Sixers is unclear. That said, maybe this is just part of the team’s ongoing quest to be as terrible as possible to tank for the #1 draft pick. And of course, we can always hold out hope for White to join the mighty ’87ers of Delaware!
