Default James White?

has this guy been on the bench in warm ups during the games? i want to see hi mget a few minutes here and there if they are giving him a 10 day contract.... lets see what the guy can do, and see if he can fit into something for real...


also does this guy remind anyone else of gerald green?

i was happy when i heard that the rockets were gonna sign white, the same way i was thrilled when they traded for green last year.

Every time I've seen him, he's been in a suit and tie, and this does remind me of Gerald Green because Green played 1 game with us and then he didn't play again. I was upset. Hopefully James White can get PT.

I was pulling for Gerald Green and i was pissed when they cut to sign a back up center (even though that was probably the right move at the time).. but we have to trust the organization... look at what Green is doing right now even though im still pulling for him.. weve produced Landry, Brooks, and Wafer... If White doesn't get the minutes, then we have to trust the org that he just isn't good enough or that he just does not fit in houston....

Talking Re: Rockets keep James White for another 10 days

I have. When he played for the Spurs. He is a very good player. Nice hops on him and a pretty good BB IQ.

I'm upset because I didn't get to see him play, but I did see highlights eventually. I saw him score I just didn't see the block.

Good News Rocket fans.


http://www.myfoxhouston.com/dpp/spo...kets_sign_white

HOUSTON - The Houston Rockets have agreed to sign guard/forward James White for the rest of this year and for the 2009-2010 season.

"He will sign the contract (Monday) and the deal includes next year as well," said Bill McCandless, White's agent.

The club had signed White to a pair of 10-day contracts. The second was to expire Tuesday.

He has played in one game so for Houston scoring five points with one steal and one blocked shot.

"This is a testament that hard work eventually pays off and James White has worked very hard," said Bill McCandless, White's agent.

"There were those who believed James might not be able to play in the NBA but he has really paid his dues which included playing a year in Europe."

McCandeless said White was able to show the Rockets what he is all about.

"It was a given James is a world-class athlete and the Rockets were really sold on all his all-around game and they believe, with some work, he can be a guy who can be in their rotation."

The Rockets signed White out of the NBA D-league where he was averaging 25.9 points for Anaheim.

"James decided in the D-league to use his athleticism and go to the basket instead of settling for the jumper which has been critical to his development," McCandless said.

Prior to that White played in seven games, starting two, for the San Antonio Spurs during the 2006-2007 season. During that stint White averaged 8.3 points a game.
