What Is Hassan Whiteside Worth?

Hassan Whiteside is a max-level player being paid $981,348. To put that into context, Robert Sacre is paid the exact same amount.

5 Free Agents the Lakers Should Still Target

1. Enes Kanter While I’d be the first to tell you that Enes Kanter is pretty much a non factor defensively, he’s definitely a skilled big man offensively. The Lakers have failed to attract any free agent big man this offseason, which has left a gaping hole on their roster.  That hole is currently being occupied by Robert Sacre, who is certainly not starter material. Behind him...

VIDEO: Robert Sacre Finds Ryan Kelly For The Alley-Oop (And No, That’s Not A Typo)

After Dirk Nowitzki made free throws for the Dallas Mavericks, Robert Sacre inbounded the ball for the Los Angeles Lakers.
