Hate to burst your buddles, but even with all the stupid franchises in the NBA right now no-one is trading for Whiteside this year (and probably not next year either). He has $52M left over the next 2

You obviously checked the box score... just look at the foul column next time instead of posting it on here.

I am sure they give a damn about your fantasy team dude. 

11 points with eight rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in 29 minutes

I will take that.

 

Whiteside's situation is concerning. Other than the injury, his relationship with Spo is seemingly on the table again.

On the table again based on what?

 

I streamed Adebayo last night but also own Whiteside, Bam is good and developing but he’s no Hassan

whiteside was not happy with the minutes he got for 8 pts 8 rebs night. He was very careful when he was asked upon reduced minutes in second half. s--- like that. Google yourself.

I know how to use Google. That’s still just an assumption you have.

He didn’t get to play because Spo was concerned about the injury. Whiteside said he ultimately respected Spo’s decision. And seeing as Whiteside missed the game after that it looks like coach was right.

Yeah you're spreading a false narrative. Ironically enough you tell him to Google something when you clearly didn't do any digging yourself.

Obviously right now Hassan is better, but I ultimately think Bam will become a better player down the line (better than Hassan's peak that is).  He reminds me (and this is purely talking his ultimate ceiling) of a better rebounding Marc Gasol.

I wish the Heat could trade Whiteside, then they could run

 

Dragic at PG

Wade at SG

Richardson at SF

Winslow at PF

Bam at C

 

That's a well rounded starting 5 right there with veteran leadership and a TON of upside.  I need to watch Bam play more, but from what I've seen so far, he is a starting caliber center that doesn't slow the offense down as bad as many traditional centers.  He has active hands that are good for above average steals, and can block a shot per game.  He's not the rebounder Whiteside is, but the team overall could get more rebounds in general, helping their fantasy values.

Marc Gasol alot better than Bam even on his rookie year imo.

Don't really see a Gasol and Adebayo comparison at all. Bam is 100x more athletic but nowhere near the passer or shooter that Marc Gasol is/was. I do like Bam as a young player though, and could see him peaking higher than Whiteside in terms of value being brought to the team. In terms of Fantasy, I don't think Bam has any real chance of peaking higher than Whiteside. 

 

He has the type of motor you can't teach, which I think is the most important part. Hopefully, he can develop some skill in the next few years.

Did you come up with that comparison on your own or was that thought planted in your head by Josh Lloyd? He said this on his podcast last night.

I'm officially calling my team the Motor Boats after drafting Harrell, Bam and Mitchell Robinson.
