Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey admits that power forward Royce White may have been the worst first-round Draft pick ever.

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has described Royce White as the "worst first-round pick ever".

The Southwest Division side picked the power forward, who suffers from an anxiety disorder which prevents him from flying as well as obsessive compulsive disorder, with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 Draft.

Morey told ClutchFans.net: "I take some sort of pride in that you could argue that Royce White is the worst first-round pick ever .

"He's the only one that never played a minute in the NBA that wasn't just a foreign guy staying in Europe. It just shows we swing for the fence."

The Rockets traded White to the Philadelphia 76ers during the off-season, but he was waived in October.
