Hassan Whiteside

2015-16 Statistics:

14.2 PPG, 11.8 RPG, 3.7 BPG, 60.6 FG%, 65.0 FT%

Hassan Whiteside exploded on the scene last year and followed that up with another outstanding season in 2016 as he has set himself up for a likely maximum contract this summer. Whiteside led the league in blocks by a wide margin and was third in rebounds. He also added 41 double-doubles and three triple-doubles.

The Miami Heat do not have Whiteside’s ‘Bird Rights’ meaning they can’t go over the salary cap to re-sign him which makes it more difficult to keep him in South Beach. Whiteside’s upside is tremendous and all teams need someone who can protect the rim like he can.
