10:46 AM ET 09.08 | The Timberwolves' search for an athletic, shot-blocking center brought free-agent Hassan Whiteside to Target Center on Thursday afternoon for a workout. Whiteside, a 2010 second-round pick who was released by Sacramento in July, worked out with the Wolves watching for the second time in a week. Last week, they sent a scout to observe him at former NBA coach John Lucas' gym workouts in Houston. On Thursday, Wolves President of Basketball Operations David Kahn, player personnel director R.J. Adelman and basketball operations director Rob Babcock watched the 7-footer.

Don't know much about him- but I like seeing YOUNG bigs picked up instead of re-treaded garbage ones.....take a chance- all bigs (other than 'elite' HOF caliber guys) take several years to mature-sign him, let him work and maybe in a year or 2 he can give you somehting

Unfortunately he's also re-treaded

The wolves have a decent roster.
If healthy they should be a sleeper in the playoffs.
2 things...IMO
Rubio must stay healthy, Roy must also, but he will have to deliver 15-18ppg.
The all star Roy from Portland must return...
