This is a deal that has been rumored for months, but now things seem to be heating up...literally.
With Dwight Howard wanting a max deal, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News is reporting that the Rockets and Heat have discussed a trade involving Dwight Howard for Hassan Whiteside.
Howard is expected to opt out of his contract to become a free agent this summer, while Whiteside is seeking a similar deal, albeit teams are scared of paying the young Heat center that huge amount of money.
Howard is far from being the dominant center he was a few years ago, winning three straight Defensive Player of the Year awards.
Whiteside’s huge salary demands can’t be met with the Heat investing so much into Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Goran Dragic.
