The top goal of the Miami Heat this offseason is to re-sign Hassan Whiteside.
Whiteside earned just $990,000 in his season season with the Heat and will likely receive a max contract.
“He’s our No. 1 priority, period,” Pat Riley said. “He’s 26 years old, he’s a game changer, and I don’t even think he’s reached his real ceiling in a couple of areas in his game. He’s shown all of us he can be a 15 [points], 15 [rebounds] and four blocked shots a game. He’ll be right there in front of the line for us.”
The Heat need to use their cap space to re-sign Whiteside.
