Heat Guarantee Salary Of Hassan Whiteside For Entire 15-16 Season

Sep 3, 2015 6:29 PM

The Miami Heat have guaranteed the contract of Hassan Whiteside for the entire 14-15 season.

The Heat could have waited through a series of guarantee dates.

Whiteside initially signed a contract last season that provided for staggered guarantee dates for his $981,348 salary for 2015-16. He was guaranteed 25 percent of his salary on Aug. 1. The initial terms of his contract had him receiving a 50-percent guarantee if still on the team on opening night and then a full guarantee if on the roster on Dec. 1.

 

With Whiteside to fall short of full Bird Rights due to only a two-year tenure with the team, the Heat still will have to create salary-cap space to re-sign him next summer.
