Whiteside: Portland Was Second Option in Free Agency


All of that made (Hassan) Whiteside’s response to a question about whether he was interested in joining Miami’s opponent late Saturday night — the Portland Trail Blazers — in free agency, intriguing.

“Portland was my second option,” Whiteside said at the team’s Saturday shootaround in Portland. “I would have came here.”

The answer from Whiteside was interesting, considering that Portland hasn’t figured prominently in the previous telling of his free agency courtship.
