Hassan Whiteside is on the Move

Hassan Whiteside is taking his shot-blocking abilities back to California where it all began for the big man, and is signing a one-year deal with the Sacramento Kings.

Whiteside was taken by the Kings in the 2010 draft, 33rd overall. 

Last season Whiteside appeared in 67 games for the Portland Trail Blazers and was productive as ever, averaging 15.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game. His almost 3 swats per game led the league and it was quite to surprising to many that Whiteside's name was still out there on the market.

Earlier in the day, the Kings decided not to match Atlanta's offer for restricted free-agent Bogdan Bogdanovic, and freed themselves up some more cap space.
