The Timberwolves are doing "a lot of due diligence" on unrestricted FA Hassan Whiteside.

Minny continues to look for another big on the cheap, and Whiteside could certainly fill that role. He's a shot-blocker with a raw game, but he would simply act as depth for the T-Wolves.

Hassan Whiteside had a "several-day audition" for the Heat.

The team will decide to sign Whiteside, Josh Harrellson or neither in the coming days. Miami has been in the market to find a bargain on the big man market before training camp begins.

Hassan Whiteside is working out for the Heat on Tuesday.

Whiteside is still drawing interest from the Timberwolves as his agent has said that Minnesota is "still very much in the mix," but the Heat have a definitive need for another big body and could be a more appealing option to Whiteside. His agent also said that "a few more teams" are interested in having his client work out.

Although the Timberwolves were "encouraged" by unrestricted FA Hassan Whiteside's workout on Thursday, they have not made a decision on whether to offer him a contract.

In addition to Whiteside, the Wolves have been linked to several FA big men, including Mehmet Okur and Anthony Tolliver. Stating the obvious, Minnesota can take their time in making a decision and Whiteside would not be on the fantasy radar even if he does end up in Minnesota.

Unrestricted FA Hassan Whiteside will work out for the Timberwolves this week.

The T-Wolves sent a scout to watch Whiteside's previous workout, and with Minnesota sniffing around the bargain bin for another big man behind Nikola Pekovic and Greg Stiemsma, Whiteside makes some sense. He's a shot-blocker, but almost every other element of Whiteside's game is incredibly raw. He's not on the fantasy radar.

The Wolves sent a scout to watch Hassan Whiteside compete against NBA players on Monday, and Whiteside reportedly "looked good."

Whiteside averaged 0.8 blocks in just six minutes per game last season, but he has yet to show any reliable skills beyond shot-blocking. It was reported in July that "several" teams might be interested in signing him, but he won't be a fantasy asset regardless of whose bench he's warming.

Hassan Whiteside is drawing interest from "several NBA teams," according to Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.

Whiteside was waived by the Kings in order to clear a roster spot for Aaron Brooks, but the big man hasn't shown much to date in his NBA career. He's got the ability to swat shots thanks to his massive wingspan, but that's just about all he can do at this stage of his career.

The Kings waived Hassan Whiteside on Monday, clearing a roster spot for Aaron Brooks.

Whiteside's contract was not guaranteed and the Kings already had 14 players on their roster before signing Brooks, so the decision was inevitable. Whiteside has all of the blocks potential you'd expect from a guy with a 7'7" wingspan, but is still far too raw for the NBA.

Hassan Whiteside said his season was done due to a severe ankle injury.

No surprise, here. Whiteside will be a guy to watch over the offseason to see if he can cash in some of his freakish athleticism and turn it into production.

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) is not expected back soon.

Keith Smart said that Whiteside's got a "bad" ankle sprain. He's averaging 1.6 points and 2.2 rebounds per game this year and only cracked more than 13 minutes of playing time once all year.

Hassan Whiteside left Wednesday's game with a sprained right ankle and will not return.

He wasn't putting any weight on it and was in the game because DeMarcus Cousins picked up three quick fouls. We should have an update after the game, but Whiteside lasted just more than a minute before suffering the injury.
Wed, Apr 11, 2012 09:03:00 PM

Hassan Whiteside had four points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 20 minutes on Sunday.

The score was lopsided, and Jason Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins didn't bring their A game tonight. Whiteside is worth keeping an eye on, but we'd rather own Thompson at this point.

Hassan Whiteside saw the first meaningful minutes of his career on Monday, playing 14 total on his way to five points, seven rebounds, one steal, and two blocks.

The issue with Whiteside has never been his athleticism, which is freaky for a 7-footer, it has been his serious knee injury that has delayed his career. Don't get us wrong, he's a mess on the court and is unlikely to play significant minutes until very late in the year, but if he gets let loose he could post some big dirty work numbers.

The Kings have assigned second-year center Hassan Whiteside to their D-League affiliate in Reno, the Bighorns.

Whiteside is 7'0" with a crazy wingspan but he has two minutes of NBA experience in two seasons, and is obviously too raw to earn a spot in Sacramento's rotation.
