Miami Heat Work Out Hassan Whiteside

The Miami Heat have invited center Hassan Whiteside to work out with the team, according to a tweet from Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Despite the workout with Miami, the 7-footer is also interested in signing with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Whiteside has made 19 NBA appearances during a two-year career with the Sacramento Kings, averaging 1.5 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. The Kings drafted the shot-blocking Whiteside out of Marshall in the second round of the 2010 NBA draft.

Whiteside was released by the Kings in July after they signed guard Aaron Brooks. Whiteside's agent also claims that there are other teams interested in having the center work out for them, though the agent did not name specific teams.

Heat training camp is scheduled to begin on Sept. 29, 2012.
