After his second Las Vegas summer league, Aaron White looks likely to go overseas for the second year in a row rather than attending training camp with the Wizards who own his rights after drafting him in 2015, league sources tell CSNmidatlantic.com.
White, who played in Germany last year, could end up with better clubs in Russia, Turkey or Spain. He could attend camp with the Wizards, who could have as many as three roster spots up for grab, and force them to keep him on the 15-man roster for the 2016-17 regular season or cut him to become a free agent.
If he goes that route, however, White likely would miss out on offers that could pay upwards of $250,000 per year. Training camp starts in late September and White will have to make a decision on playing abroad sooner.
In five summer league games, White averaged 7.2 points and 5.2 rebounds. He only shot 39% from the field, including just 29.4% from three-point range. He was drafted with the hope he could evolved into a “stretch” option at forward.
White’s best game came in the finale, an 88-85 loss to the Chicago Bulls when he made 3 of 6 threes for 11 points and eight rebounds.
