Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking for another big man to add to the roster and it's sounding as though the Wolves are taking a long hard look at former Kings center Hassan Whiteside.
A TWolves scout recently sat in on a workout for him in Houston and apparently, Minnesota wants a second, closer look.
According to...you guessed it: Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 Twin Cities, the Wolves are bringing Whiteside to Minnesota today and he'll workout in front of the "decision-makers", who'll make the final decision.
I assume they're looking at Whiteside (instead of Tolliver) for a couple different reasons. 1.) Whiteside has a bit more length (he's a 7-footer, while AT is 6-8). 2.) Hassan will cost considerably less (AT is looking for around $2million a year, while Whiteside could probably receive the minimum). 3.) AT would probably look for more playing time, while Whiteside could be a deep reserve/work in progress.
There should be more on this VERY SOON, until then, thanks for reading HOWL and GO WOLVES!
