The Miami Heat have signed Beasley to a training camp contract, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and confirmed by the team. The deal is for one year at the veteran minimum ($1 million for him) and this is not guaranteed. He can be cut.
“Michael had the best years of his career with us. We feel that he can help us,” Heat president Pat Riley said in a released statement.
This summer the Heat have now added Beasley and Greg Oden, the two biggest draft busts of the past decade. Remember it was the Heat who drafted Beasley No. 2 (just after Derrick Rose) and he was coached by Erik Spoelstra and was teammates with Dwyane Wade. Both signings are not a bad roll of the dice by Miami.
