HOUSTON - The Rockets suspended first-round pick Royce White on Sunday for "refusing to provide services" required by his contract.

General Manager Daryl Morey said the team will continue to work with White, a former Hopkins star, in hopes of finding a resolution.

White refused his assignment to Houston's D-League affiliate a week ago. The 16th overall pick in the June draft has spent most of the season on Houston's inactive list while he and the team figure out how to handle his anxiety disorder and overall mental health.

White has been vocal on Twitter throughout this saga, and he continued to voice his opinions on the website after the announcement Sunday.

"What's suspending me suppose to do. I've been away from the team for a month 1/2. Guess we want to give it a title to shift accountability," he tweeted.
