Hassan Whiteside hit just 5-of-16 shots but finished with 10 points, 12 boards, two assists and two blocks over 22 minutes in Wednesday's season finale against the Raptors.
Whiteside saw his minutes drop from 32.6 mpg in 2016-17 to this year's 25.3 per contest. His stat line dropped accordingly and the only silver lining was an increase in free throw percentage to a career-high 70.3 percent. Knee issues contributed to just 53 games played and frustration between he and the team mounted throughout the year. After holding value for much of the year, he finished with just top 40-50 value when on the floor and along with all the missed games he killed owners in the second half of the season.
