Royce White is playing competitive basketball again.
The Minneapolis native and former 2012 first-round NBA draft pick produced back-to-back triple-doubles over the weekend in the National Basketball League of Canada. He is the first player in NBLC history to achieve this feat.
White is a starting forward for the London Lightning of Ontario. His last action was in the 2015 NBA Summer League after playing in just three games with the Sacramento Kings in 2014.
The 6-8 White has battled an anxiety disorder that has been at the center of several well-documented conflicts with his former NBA employers. White has become an advocate for mental health awareness and started the organization Anxious Minds.
"How we live, how we think, how we feel, how we interact with one another is mental health," White said in a recent interview with the NBLC.
