Michael Beasley Signs 10-Day Contract with Heat

The Miami Heat announced Thursday that they’ve brought Michael Beasley back for a third stint with the team:

Beasley began his career with the Heat in 2008, when he was selected second overall after the Chicago Bulls took Derrick Rose No. 1. Beasley showed some promise in his first two years, but he was traded in 2010 to the Minnesota Timberwolves in order to help clear cap space for LeBron James and Chris Bosh.

Beasley enjoyed the best season of his career in 2010-11, averaging 19.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in 73 games with Minnesota. It has been all downhill since then in terms of his NBA career. He signed a three-year deal with the Phoenix Suns in 2012, but he was waived after one year after he was arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession.

Beasley returned to the Heat in 2013, and he appeared in 55 regular-season games, as well as his first NBA Finals game in 2014. The 26-year-old signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Memphis Grizzlies prior to this season, but he was waived in order to sign with the Shanghai Sharks in China.

Beasley tore it up in China, and he even set a record:

With Chris Bosh out for the season, Miami needed more help in the frontcourt, and here we are: B-Easy is back. The Heat currently hold the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.
