Lucky us. The Royce White drama continues with the Rockets.

Despite his roller coaster of bad decisions and publicized problems with anxiety, the rookie forward is reportedly close to returning to the team’s D-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Vipers.

In a call in to a morning radio show, White said he plans to report to the D-League on Feb. 11.

“The resolution, when I say we’re in the 12th hour, what I literally mean is we’re in the 12th hour .. .. any hour now this thing will be over,” White said. “I’m supposed to be returning to the D-league on February 11. That was the plan. We’ll see if it finally goes through but last thing I heard was that’s what we’re going to do, that’s what we’re planning to do. Waiting on everybody to get the right paperwork done and stuff.

“Everybody wants to make it seem like wild, wild west standoff between me and the Rockets. That’s not the case here.”

When told of White’s comments on Wednesday, Morey told the Chronicle, “We’re in constant communication with Royce and hope to get him back in the fold soon.”
