Neil Olshey hasn’t been shy about addressing weaknesses this summer.
Last week, he traded Evan Turner for 3 and D wing Kent Bazemore. Then, on the first day of free agency Sunday, he signed forward Mario Hezonja and retained playoff hero Rodney Hood.
Now, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, he’s filling in the Jusuf Nurkic sized hole at center, trading Mo Harkless and Meyers Leonard for Hassan Whiteside.
All three players in the trade are on contracts that expire next summer.
