Whiteside has exercised his $27.1 million player option, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
As expected, Whiteside will guarantee himself $27.1 million rather than test the open market. Toward the end of last season, he lost his starting spot to Bam Adebayo, and Whiteside ultimately averaged 12.3 points, 11.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks across 23.3 minutes. It would be surprising to seem him garner a bigger role with the Heat next season. Jun 21 12:50 pm (EST)
- Whiteside is expected to opt into the final year of his contract with the Heat, the Miami Herald reports.

- Whiteside finished with 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-6 FT), nine rebounds, and three blocks in 24 minutes during Friday's 116-87 loss to the Bucks. All Hassan Whiteside News
