McALLEN, Texas (AP) - Houston Rockets first-round draft pick Royce White has not reported to training camp and said he and the team are working on a plan to address his fear of flying.
The 6-foot-8 White was the 16th overall pick after one season at Iowa State. White suffers from anxiety and fear of flying. He says on Twitter that he's working with the team on an ``innovative plan'' to balance treatment with the NBA schedule.
White said he has an agreement with the team to take a bus to select games, pending league approval. The Rockets would not comment beyond a statement that said they ``are committed to Royce's long term success and we will continue to support him now and going forward.''
The Rockets opened training camp in McAllen, near the Texas-Mexico border, the home of their developmental league affiliate.
