Sacramento, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Sacramento Kings signed forward Royce White to a second 10-day contract on Tuesday.

Sacramento originally signed White to a 10-day deal on March 6. He immediately reported to the Reno Bighorns of the NBA Development League and averaged 8.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists in four starts.

Take by the Houston Rockets with the 16th overall choice in the 2012 NBA Draft, White has yet to appear in an NBA game due to a well-publicized anxiety disorder.

The 22-year-old had a brief and turbulent tenure with the Rockets, who suspended White in January of 2013 following a disagreement with the team on how to treat his anxiety issues, which include a fear of flying. White refused to accept an assignment to the D-League that triggered the suspension, but later relented and averaged 11.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Houston traded White to Philadelphia in July, but he was waived by the 76ers shortly before the start of the season.
