Four teams expected to trade for reportedly available Hassan Whiteside

LOS ANGELES LAKERS

Aside from Kevin Durant, Whiteside became one of the top free agency targets of the Lakers. They headed into the recent offseason looking for a quality center to replace Roy Hibbert. Unfortunately, the Lakers failed to even have an appointment and targeted Timofey Mozgov.

The Lakers have a plethora of trade assets the Heat need to rebuild the team. Whiteside’s four-year, $98 million contract looks enticing for the Lakers as well. Since Kobe Bryant retired, they continue to find his replacement. Whiteside will undeniably be a great fit for the role.
