Poll: Should The Rockets Waive Royce White?

Earlier today it was reported that Rockets rookie forward Royce White would decline his D-league assignment. In other news that's possibly related, the Rockets signed free agent forward James Anderson to a non-guaranteed three-year contract. 

According to the Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen, White's contract is worth $1.6MM this season and $1.8MM next season, with both seasons guaranteed. If the Rockets cut him without showing cause, White would have to be paid the balance of the guaranteed two seasons of his contract. But they could try to show he had not fulfilled his contract. 

Should they keep him around? Or is this situation too far gone?

keep him and hire his doctor or something. worth exhausting every option before pulling the plug on someone with potential.

I don’t know how much potential he actually has. He is undersized for his position, which is a tough thing to pull off in the NBA.
