Michael Beasley Heading Back to Miami Heat?

Troubled free agent Michael Beasley might return to the two-time world champion Miami Heat as sources say the franchise is considering the 6-foot-10 forward.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Miami Heat is contemplating returning Beasley to their roster after he was waived by the Phoenix Suns following his arrest in early August for possession of marijuana.

Several of the Heat’s key veteran players are supporting the signing of Beasley, who was the second overall pick by the Heat in the 2008 NBA draft.

Beasley spent two seasons with the Heat, averaging 14.1 points, before team president Pat Riley traded him to the Timberwolves for draft picks and to clear salary-cap space to bring in LeBron James and Chris Bosh. 

Though no offers or guarantees have been made, Beasley is reported to have a strong interest in returning to the team.
