I saw White's pathetic interview on PTI....He told Wilbon he's "negotiating" for the right playing conditions so he can play in D-League.

I think White's agent is trying to market him as some kind of NBA mental health pioneer.  White seems very full of himself.

I don't think he's marketing him, I think he is building a case to get paid for his contract, even though he can't play basketball. 

This was manipulated beautifully by his agent since well before the draft.  He was able to use the media to get White taken a lot higher than he deserved (and therefore guaranteed more money), and now that the truth is coming out that White really is not capable of playing NBA basketball, his agent is making sure they have a watertight case, in the unlikely event the Rockets try to get out of paying him.

I'm sure that will happen at some point.  Although there is no benefit to rushing, unless they want the roster spot.
