Royce White To Make Sixers Debut Friday

Royce White to make his debut.

Royce White’s inability to consistently board a plane has been his downfall during his young NBA career.

On the positive side, White is expected to make his Sixers debut Friday and Sixers head coach Brett Brown is remaining optimistic.

“I see a talented player that is wildly creative, wants to do everything,” Brown said. “We want to put him in a real clean role initially and then let him use his creative instincts, but it’s based again on his fitness. He’s very talented, different talented. He’s like DeJuan Blair, when we coached him in San Antonio. He had a different feel for the game – passing, running, creative. I see similarities with Royce.”

Philadelphia faces off against the Celtics tomorrow night.
