E:60 explores Royce White’s “really complicated” NBA story

Kate Fagan previews interview with one of the first pro athletes to discuss mental health issues

May is Mental Health Month. E:60 reporter and espnW writer Kate Fagan – the author of What Made Maddy Run – explores the topic of mental health in an interview with Royce White.

A 2012 first-round draft pick of the Houston Rockets from Iowa State, White’s NBA career lasted only three games in a stint with the Sacramento Kings. On Sunday at 9 a.m. ET, he tells Fagan why. Fagan discusses the interview in the video above; see an excerpt of her conversation with White in the trailer below.
