Minnesota Timberwolves regional scout Milton Barnes saw enough in a recent pickup game from Hassan Whiteside that he convinced team officials to take a longer look at the free agent center.

According to a source, the Wolves are flying Whiteside into the Twin Cities on Wednesday and will put him through a workout Thursday.

Whiteside was the 33rd pick in the 2010 draft by Sacramento. He has spent a majority of his two years playing in the D-League. He has been working out in Houston with former NBA coach John Lucas and free agent Andray Blatche.

The Wolves are intent on adding another big man before training camp begins on Oct. 2. They have just the veteran's minimum to offer a free agent unless they make a trade to free up more salary cap space.
