    Trail Blazers' Hassan Whiteside: Dealt to Portland

    Hassan Whiteside was traded to Portland on Monday in exchange for Moe Harkless and Meyers Leonard, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.Heading into free agency, Whiteside opted into his $27.1 million player option, but the Heat will send him to Portland, where he'll likely slide in as the starting center while Jusuf Nurkic recovers from a serious lower-leg injury. Whiteside's fantasy value has been all on a gradual decline over the last three seasons, but it's mostly been due to dwindling opportunity. Last season, Whiteside averaged just 23.3 minutes per contest but still managed to post 12.3 points, 11.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Exercises $27.1 million option

    Hassan Whiteside has exercised his $27.1 million player option, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.As expected, Whiteside will guarantee himself $27.1 million rather than test the open market. Toward the end of last season, he lost his starting spot to Bam Adebayo, and Whiteside ultimately averaged 12.3 points, 11.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks across 23.3 minutes. It would be surprising to seem him garner a bigger role with the Miami Heat next season.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Intends to opt in

    Hassan Whiteside is expected to opt into the final year of his contract with the Miami Heat, the Miami Herald reports.Whiteside is due to make more than $27 million next season, so the decision is close to a no-brainer, from his perspective, though his expected return to the Heat will once again bring questions about his role. The big man lost his starting spot to Bam Adebayo down the stretch last season, and he subsequently expressed his concern over his workload. "I don't think I'm a 20-minute guy," Whiteside said back in April. "I average what, 20 minutes? So I think I can play more and I can do more. So I definitely think what I bring to the game is at a high level for my position. You know, I led the league in categories that you would want a big man to lead the league in. I feel like I can keep doing that." Going forward, Whiteside will be a part of Miami's regular rotation, though it's unclear if he'll have a chance to reclaim his starting center spot. It's also quite possible the Heat try to move Whiteside at some point, as his expiring status makes his salary more palatable for another team to take on.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Best outing in some time Saturday

    Hassan Whiteside totaled 17 points 7-10 FG, 3-6 FT), 13 rebounds, one steal, and one block in 20 minutes during Saturday's 100-92 victory over the Knicks.Whiteside still played just 20 minutes Saturday but was able to come away with a productive line. He ended with 17 points and 13 rebounds, his first double-double in over two weeks. He has been a huge disappointment down the stretch and his future is certainly a topic that will be debated across the off-season. At this stage, he is firmly behind Bam Adebayo on the depth chart and is more of a streaming option for the remaining games.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Blocks three shots in loss

    Hassan Whiteside finished with 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-6 FT), nine rebounds, and three blocks in 24 minutes during Friday's 116-87 loss to the Bucks.Whiteside came off the bench again Friday but saw more playing time that Bam Adebayo, who managed just 18 minutes. The game was ugly and the rotations certainly reflected the overall play of the Miami Heat. Despite coming off the bench, Whiteside has been maintaining standard league relevance, although, the playing time here is likely to reduce again Saturday against the Wizards.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Another double-double off bench

    Hassan Whiteside scored 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and three blocks in 19 minutes off the bench during Friday's 113-98 loss to the Bucks.The Miami Heat's efforts to limit his court time and keep him fresh seem to be paying off. Whiteside has grabbed a double-double in four of the last five games, averaging 12.8 points, 11.0 boards and 1.6 blocks over that stretch despite not playing more than 23 minutes in any of them.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Posts double-double off bench

    Hassan Whiteside totaled 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block across 20 minutes off the bench in the Miami Heat's win over the Pistons on Wednesday.Whiteside came off the bench for the fifth straight game on Wednesday, posting a double-double in just 20 minutes of action. In those five starts, he's still managed to be productive, averaging 10.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals in 19.2 minutes. His decrease in minutes have driven his price down in daily formats, where he makes an excellent punt-play because of his double-double upside.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Double-double off bench

    Hassan Whiteside scored 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench during Friday's 126-110 win over the Cavaliers.It was far from his most productive effort, but Whiteside still chipped in his second straight double-double. He seems to be taking to his current bench role well enough, but the 23 minutes he saw Friday were his most in three games since returning from a hip injury. If Miami continues to limit his court time in an effort to keep the brittle big man healthy, his production will suffer.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Posts monster double-double

    Hassan Whiteside posted 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-3 FT), 15 rebounds and four blocks across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 91-84 win over the Hornets.After being ineffective and playing just 15 minutes in his first game back from the hip injury, Whiteside registered a huge game Wednesday night, highlighted by nine offensive rebounds. He should be back in the starting lineup before long as he works his way back to full health.
