Michael Beasley ‘Agrees’ With Coming off the Bench

Well, sort of: “Erik Spoelstra said after consulting with assistant coach Ron Rothstein and then meeting with Beasley before Saturday’s victory over the Washington Wizards, it was decided to maintain Beasley’s role as a sixth man…’The bench has been playing well, and we didn’t want to make two changes,’ Spoelstra said after Monday’s practice at AmericanAirlines Arena. ‘He actually agreed.’ Beasley would not go that far, but said playing behind fill-in starter Yakhouba Diawara is not an issue. ‘He obviously knows more than me,’ the No. 2 pick in last June’s draft said. ‘It was respecting the elder.'”
