According to Dallas Mavericks reporter Tim Cato, an interesting tidbit about Miami Heat free agent center Hassan Whiteside came out of the latest podcast starring ESPN's Zach Lowe and Brian Windhorst:

Rumors are, by nature, speculative. It seems curious that Whiteside's incumbent team would be "scrambling" to meet with him, having had all season to prepare for this moment. But such are the hours before free agency opens.

The Portland Trail Blazers reportedly have a meeting scheduled with Whiteside on July 1st. Ostensibly his choices have been narrowed to the Heat, Blazers, and Dallas Mavericks.

We will update this post with emerging reports as necessary.
