There was a strong displeasure among loyalists when the Sacramento Kings signed Royce White to a 10-day contract last week, namely because of White’s suspect history.
Regardless, from an evaluation standpoint, ten days isn’t much time to get a read so the Kings are expected to extend a second 10-day contract to White in the near future, this according to NBA.com’s David Aldridge.
In addition, if all goes well on White’s second deal, he’ll likely make his way to Sacramento where he’ll join the Kings (and presumably play).
White’s 10-day deal expires on Saturday, the day after Reno plays at home against Idaho. If everything works out, White will likely get a second 10-day, and move down to Sacramento, where he’ll work out and play with the Kings. They will be finishing a long East coast/Midwest road trip next Sunday. After they return, they’ll have four straight games at Sleep Train Arena (March 18-26), so there will be no travel issues. (Everyone insists this is a coincidence. I don’t believe in coincidences.)
