Why the hell not, right? The Heat were trying to give Michael Beasley away and all it cost Minnesota was a second-round pick. There is also a swapping of first-round picks involved in the deal sometime in the next seven years though. Details on this are murky at best, but this could be a massive mistake by David Kahn. I feel like I've written that previous sentence a couple times in the past 13 months.
Beasley has talent but it is well known that he has not lived up to his expectations as the second-overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. It seems to be a lack of effort that is holding him back. Maybe a new environment and the fact that he is in the final year of his guaranteed rookie contract will light a fire underneath him.
But umm... where are his minutes going to come from? Minnesota already has Love and Jefferson at power forward, and just drafted small forwards Wesley Johnson and Lazar Hayward, and traded for Martell Webster. Kahn tried this at the end of the season with Darko and is probably hoping Beasley reaches his potential with the opportunity presented to him in Minnesota. If not, it was worth the one-year test I guess...
Why this makes sense for Miami:
See James, LeBron... Wade, Dwyane... Bosh, Chris...
Exactly and now they also have trade assets. Grasu could get a pick from a center needy team, Kush can back up Whitehair. Glennon can head to AZ for a pick when Palmer gets hurt or continues his poor play. Someone may want to gamble on Kyle Fuller and give up a late pick if he doesnt impress the Bears staff. Amos or HJQ could get a 6 or 7 from a safety needy team.
I was waiting for this comment. Im not saying that their gonna have the same careers as these dudes. Thats imposible. I compare them to who they have similar games to. Just so people can get an idea how these people play. All fun. I got the best mock out you better take it seriously.
