Should the Heat Get Rid of Michael Beasley?

by April 29, 2010

With Pat Riley needing to do everything he can to placate D-Wade this summer, SuperCool Beas might not be long for South Beach, speculates the Sun-Sentinel: “If Wade returns, then Beasley never will get to move closer to the leading-man role he so craves. Considering his final act this season was being benched for the second half of Tuesday’s series-ending loss to the Celtics, it would appear that a parting would be in the best interest of all parties. While Beasley should be able to produce breakout numbers on a team less caught up in pick-and-roll offense and defensive efficiency, his value is such that the best net gain in a deal for the Heat could be additional cap space. Trying to continue to make this work could be very difficult for the Heat, especially if Erik Spoelstra is back as coach.”
