The Miami Heat are expected to pursue a trade of Hassan Whiteside this offseason.
Whiteside is due $24.4 million and $27.1 million in the final two years of his contract.
"It's been a long year, man, up and downs, up and downs," he said.
Whiteside has talked openly about his frustrations with playing time.
"Not being out there,” he said. “Not being out there. At least give me a chance to fight. At least give me a chance to fight. I can understand if I was playing 30 minutes and I played bad. At least give me a chance."
He said: “We played a style of play Coach wanted. He wanted to utilize more spacing I guess in the playoffs, so that's why he did it."
