On Wednesday at NBC Sports Northwest’s Chalk Talk, Whiteside sat on a panel for a Q&A session with Dan Sheldon, Dwight Jaynes, Michael Holton and Brian Noe. “I think you guys will really enjoy the blocks, the dunks, the rebounds, me flex’n…” says Whiteside. “As far as the team, I definitely want to increase on the record from last year. This is potentially the best team I’ve ever played on talent wise and it’s not many times you get the opportunity you get a real shot at winning the championship. So as a team, I just want to be that defensive anchor and just bring as much as I can to the team.”
After the trade with the Mavericks fell apart, the Heat conveyed to Dragic’s camp that it would try to trade him to accommodate cap requirements to execute the Butler sign and trade, according to league sources. But when Portland offered to take Hassan Whiteside for Mo Harkless (then re-routed to the Clippers) and Meyers Leonard, that eliminated Miami’s need to trade Dragic. And the Dragic camp was then told that he would remain on the Heat barring something unforeseen. The Heat has declined to comment about what led to the misunderstanding with Dallas or anything involving the matter.
There were also multiple text messages. But they were not ordinary text messages. When Lillard texted Whiteside, the messages were measured not in lines but in multiple screens. “I’m talking about … like, Dame wrote books,” Whiteside said. There was stuff about basketball. More stuff about communicating. And an outline of how things work in Portland. But above all, it was one big open-armed welcome. “And I was like, man, I’m here. This is all right,” Whiteside said. “This is what I’ve been waiting for.”
Eric Pincus: The Clippers send $110,00 (the min requirement) to the Heat in the Jimmy Butler/Whiteside/etc. deal – LAC got Harkless and a Miami protected 1st (lottery protected through 2025, unprotected 2026) and the rights to Mathias Lessort (2017-50th) via Philly – that’s a “wow” trade
