Miami Heat sign F/C Hassan Whiteside.
Whiteside will join the Heat after averaging 22 points, 15.7 rebounds and 5.3 blocked shots in three games with the Iowa Energy of the D-League this season. The Heat will waive Shannon Brown to make room on their roster for Whiteside, but fantasy owners shouldn't be running to the waiver wire as the big man will fill a bench role with the Heat.

The Heat will call up Hassan Whiteside from the D-League, a source tells the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

It's not yet clear what the corresponding roster move may be, but Whiteside will join Miami's roster.
Nov 24 - 10:12 AM

Hassan Whiteside is reportedly receiving interest from the Miami Heat.

It's worth noting that Justin Hamilton's contract doesn't become guaranteed until Dec. 1, so if Hassan signs with the Heat, he could potentially push Hamilton out. However, neither of these guys are going to be relevant to owners in standard leagues.

The Grizzlies have waived C Hassan Whiteside.

Whiteside was signed on Wednesday, and released on Thursday. He's not likely to sign on with another team.
Nov 20 - 6:13 PM

The Grizzlies signed C Hassan Whiteside to provide emergency depth vs. the Raptors on Wednesday.

Kosta Koufos (flu) and Jon Leuer (flu) are both out, which leaves Whiteside as the Grizzlies' lone backup center. He may block a few shots and snare a few rebounds, but that's about it.

Grizzlies waive C Hassan Whiteside.

Whiteside's length and shot-blocking ability earned him a training camp invite, and he averaged 3.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in just 8.2 minutes per game during the preseason. The Grizzlies' roster now stands at 16 players, so another cut is on the way.

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed Hassan Whiteside to a non-guaranteed contract for training camp.

Whiteside has been kicking around the NBA and it's D-League affiliates for the past few years. Being 7-feet has kept him somewhat relevant in league circles, but there's no evidence that he will suddenly become a contributor to a team.

Hassan Whiteside has signed in the D-League.

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.
