Kings Recall Hassan Whiteside!

The Sacramento Kings today recalled center Hassan Whiteside from the Reno Bighorns of the D-League, it was announced by Kings’ President of Basketball Operations Geoff Petrie.

Whiteside averaged 4.4 points (.509 FG%, .412 FT%), 2.7 rebounds, 0.1 assists, 2.14 blocks, and 10.5 minutes per game in 14 games, including three starts with the Bighorns. He was assigned to Reno on November 29, 2010.

Selected by Sacramento in the second round (33rd overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft out of Marshall University, Whiteside appeared in one NBA game, playing two minutes in the season opener at Minnesota on October 27, 2010.

Awesome, big fan of

Awesome, big fan of Whiteside, love his length and shot-blocking, could be the perfect defensive match with Cousins' offensive presence in the future.

He won't be a factor at all

He won't be a factor at all this season. He was no where near NBA ready when he came out, and it shows. Perhaps next season he will get his opportunity, but right now the Kings have a crowded frontcourt.

Yea... He's not ready to

Yea... He's not ready to contribute on an NBA team.

I caught one of his D-League games on NBATV and wasn't too impressed with anything other than his length and shot blocking. His body type/length reminds me of Javale McGee's.

Just watched highlights from

Just watched highlights from the Kings-Raptors game, absolutely appalling help D from Sactown bigs, might explain why Whiteside got the call-up.

He's still way too raw to contribute this year.

I'm glad he came out of

I'm glad he came out of Marshall after one year though.... IMO even playing in the D-League is much better than dominating mid-major competition. He's still very young with a lot of potential and just needs lots of time.....

it to Mcgee some time and it

It took Mcgee some time and it will take him some time too but there are only a few good big men in the league and I think in 2 or 3 years Whiteside can be a solid starter and also average a least 3 blocks per game.

I don't get why they call him

I don't get why they call him up, he doesn't even average 20mpg in the D-League, maybe to pressure Cousins haha

The Kings probably called him

The Kings probably called him up so he can practice with the team. Who knows, they might even activate him instead of Darnell Jackson and let him get a few minutes.

Kings

The Kings at this point know they are not going to make the playoffs. Why not give some young players some playing time to see what they can and cant do. Whiteside will also become better practicing against Thompson, Cousins, Landry, Dalembert. When rebuilding like the Kings are you have to judge what assets you have and what they are worth.

It seems the D-League team is

It seems the D-League team is rather useless if your team does not own the D-League team. I am not sure if Whiteside had done any development down there and maybe that's why so many teams would rather keep the young players in the NBA than using D-League. Since the D-League operates on its own, it would have its own offense system than the NBA affiliates and most players in the D-League tried to put up great stats so that they can get the callup from the NBA and defense is hard to come by. It is also a guard-dominant league that favors guard-play. It is still a long way to go before D-League can actually become a relevant farm league for the NBA.
