The future of Hassan Whiteside with the Miami Heat is uncertain just a few months after signing a long-term, four-year, $98 million deal in the offseason.
"I think the Heat are open for business," said Zach Lowe on a recent podcast. "Up and down the roster, literally every player. No one is untouchable, not even Hassan Whiteside, by a longshot."
Whiteside was asked about the speculation.
"I never really pay attention to it," the shot-blocking center said before the Heat faced the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena. "If I pay attention to it, I wouldn't be back in the league. There's all kind of rumors. A lot of people said of lot of things to keep me from being back in the league."
Miami now has an 11-29 record.
"I knew it was going to be a big change when we got nine new guys coming to the team," he said of the offseason makeover. "I knew it was going to be a lot different. It's a whole new team. But these guys, they care about winning, so it could always be worse."
