Hassan Whiteside wants a lot of money and does not care about the loyalty at all when it comes to the Miami Heat. The Heat are worry about trying to get big name free agents like an Kevin Durant or an Al Horford.
According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, Whiteside left the meeting without having an deal with Miami and will meet with Dallas Mavericks next in New York. Reading in between the lines, it looks like he will sign with the Mavericks because it has been reported that those teams are the front runners.
The Heat are in a tricky situation because they are the last ones to meet with Kevin Durant, but a lot of people believe that Durant will be back with Oklohoma City Thunder. The Heat are in a tough position at the start of free agency. Talks are stalling with Dwayne Wade, so it is tough for the staff.
Whiteside averaged 14.2 points per game, 11.8 rebounds per game and 3.7 blocks for the Heat in 73 games played last season. He has the ability to become an top big man in the league just needs to act right on and off the court. Be interesting to see if he does sign wirh the Mavericks, how much money will he get per year.
