Kings assign Hassan Whiteside to the D-League

This is exactly how NBA teams should use the D-League.

Hassan Whiteside is just a ridiculous athlete, but he’s still figuring out how to play basketball at the NBA level. He needs time on the court, something Paul Westphal can’t really give him in Sacramento right now.

So Whiteside has been assigned to the D-League’s Reno Bighorns, according to Scott Schroeder at FanHouse. There he will play for Eric Musselman on a talented roster (a lot of NBA potential guys on that team).

Smart move by the Kings, who drafted Whiteside in the second round. Give the guy some run and let him learn and develop.

    Well that was fairly predictable. Here’s a write-up of the Kings’ draft from late-June pointing out that two headcases like Cousins and Whiteside were probably not the way to build a club:
