Default Royce White prepared to walk away from NBA

Per ESPN: "Royce White told ESPN he will meet with GM and is prepared to walk away from NBA"

Wow.

Is any of his money even guaranteed as a non lotto pick?

I'm trying to be sensitive to his mental state, but I don't know why he just can't suck it up and get on the plane. Didn't he fly a lot for college basketball too?

We're talking about providing for his life here. Why can't he just take flight?

First two years are guaranteed for all 1st round picks that sign their rookie contracts. Year 3 and 4 are team options.

I don't think the Rockets will be picking up his team option.

Reference:

White gets a rookie contract worth $2.8 million in the first two guaranteed seasons, with the team holding options for a third and fourth season.

$5.6 million bucks for two weeks of whining on Twitter? I'll take that deal!

Well, I hope he's serious. Because if the Rockets release him, no NBA team will ever touch him again.

If he voluntarily walked away, wouldn't the contract be forfeited or something?
