C - SAC
Free agent C Hassan Whiteside has agreed to a one-year deal with the Sacramento Kings.
Whiteside was performing at a very high level last season before he lost a lot of minutes down the stretch to Jusuf Nurkic, so it makes sense that he ultimately decided to sign elsewhere. His fantasy value goes up now that he’s not stuck on the bench behind Nurkic in Portland.
Hassan Whiteside scored eight points and added eight rebounds during Portland's loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday. Whiteside was 3-of-5 shooting and had one block.
Whiteside had an opportunity to make a big impact during game 3, but had a fairly mediocre stat line. Despite starting, Whiteside only played 26 minutes, which was by far the lowest out of any starter. Whiteside is a talented player, but doesn't seem to fit the game plan that the Trailblazers want to follow. Whiteside is a player to avoid in all fantasy formats as he is just too inconsistent in his playing time and opportunity.
Trail Blazers C Hassan Whiteside will replace Wenyen Gabriel in the starting lineup for Game 3 Saturday night.
Whiteside draws the start in Game 3 to help fend off a much bigger Lakers squad. He now presents a great value if you still have the flexibility with your DFS lineup as he produces at a high per minute clip.
