New, comments

Whiteside appears to be very excited about his trade to Portland.

The Portland Trail Blazers agreed to a trade for Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside on Monday, sending Maurice Harkless and Meyers Leonard to South Beach. Following the trade, an apparently very excited Whiteside posted a video with his thoughts:

Whiteside can be heard saying over and over again: “We got shooters!” Presumably, he’s talking about players like Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and the newly re-signed Rodney Hood.

Portland previously pursued the center in the summer of 2016 before he signed with the Heat.
