Miami Heat interested in signing Michael Beasley


The first time Michael Beasley was a member of the Miami Heat, it went woefully wrong.

They’re hoping the second time will be the charm.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Heat are interested in bringing back Michael Beasely, who was recently released by the Phoenix Suns.

Per Wojo:

The two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat are considering the possibility of bringing back troubled free-agent forward Michael Beasley, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Several of the Heat’s key veteran players are supportive of the signing of Beasley, and he has a strong interest in returning to the franchise responsible for taking him with the second overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft, sources told Yahoo.

No offer has been made and no deal is considered imminent, sources said.

Talent hasn’t really been the issue for Beasley, rather, work ethic and well, everything not related to talent. Could LeBron James and company keep him in line and bring the potential out of him? Have to figure it’s a low risk, high reward scenario for the Heat.
