The Blazers will entertain offers for center Hassan Whiteside and chances of him being dealt are at 50/50, according to Jason Quick of The Athletic.
Whiteside is averaging 15.6 points (on 59.8 percent shooting), 14.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and a league-leading 3.0 blocks this season but that doesn’t make him untouchable. Big man Jusuf Nurkic is recovering and making positive strides from a devastating leg injury last season and there has been speculation that he could be back after the All-Star Game in February. Whiteside might turn out to be surplus to requirements upon Nurkic’s return, which makes selling high now a pretty attractive option.
