Two scrubs centers for an all star and you didn't smash accept immediately??? Jesus man these Whiteside fangirls are nuts

He has 10 years worth of minutes. Who exactly are they showcasing him to? Aliens that just arrived on earth? Walton is desperate and Hassan is a break-in-case-of-emergency kind of guy on their roster.

This is a great way to NOT be a NBA head coach lol. There's a reason good orgs like Miami and Portland got rid of Whiteside. I'm convinced that everyone who thinks he's some elite big man has literall

He'd be perfect in Brooklyn if he can force a buyout or a trade

For fantasy  - maybe. For Brooklyn? Hell no. They want a truly defensive center, no way they use Hassan for that. Brooklyn will rather go after McGee.

Jason Jones: Luke Walton said with Richaun Holmes playing well and Hassan Whiteside healthy, the plan is to leave Marvin Bagley III primarily at power forward with Harrison Barnes getting the minutes at PF that don’t go to Bagley. Bagley played a lot of center after injuries last season.
 

So seems like Whiteside is THE backup C now and Bagley is out of the equation?

I’m getting desperate at the Center position and seeing Whiteside name sitting at the top of my wire is like water for a dessert. 

Water most likely a mirage. but i'll most likely jump if any news breaks out ASAP.

Hes a FA in my league and of course he got more run because Holmes was out, but does this warrant more playing time going forward? 

Didnt watch any of the game so I have no clue if he had an actual impact keeping them in the game or if this was a blowout/garbage time type of thing

Holmes was out,

it’s the Brooklyn Nets.

Sure drop Domatas Sabonis for Whiteside.

what i wanted when i drafted him top 60, now hes not even in my team. it usually shows how hes fantasy and not real life relevant is after every game like this - he'll go back to playing 10 mins and doing nothing (providing holmes is healthy). yet everytime we get into the trap of "did this performance earn him more mins going forward" usually the answer is sadly no.

revenge game vs mia on deck. hopefully holmes sits out. 

I hope he does too. If not, Hassan wasn’t so hot against Miami in their last outing but still got 20 mins.

It's a trap, but man is it enticing, especially with basically half of all my teams held out due to "health and safety" this week.  I think it's telling that nobody in my uber-active league is even sniffing him despite that crazy line.  

I get the asterisks - Nets, Holmes out, etc.  But it's worth streaming him, esp since he's got a B2B over the weekend.  If nothing else, he's a pure blocks specialist with some wild upside (strictly speaking as a fantasy player, not IRL).  Who knows, Holmes might actually be out again ... though I'd probably expect him to be back next game and drop Whiteside back to 12 minutes or something.

Whatever, there's like 4 guys worth streaming on my team, just dropped Isiah Stewart for him due to DET PPD games and Isaiah's backup mins. Plus everyone is playing on Wed Fri Sun this week while Whiteside gets the Thurs Sat Sun games so it's like a free play for me. Drummond is on the trade block but no one wants to pay less for Whiteside??? Sighhhhhhhh

Just added him too. Great schedule for Thursday to the end of the week and Holmes is doubtful for Thu
