The Miami Heat are considering bringing back free-agent forward Michael Beasley, according to Yahoo! reporter Adrian Wojnarowski. The Heat selected Beasley with the second overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.

According to Wojnarowski, several Heat veterans are lobbying for management to bring Beasley back to Miami. No offer has been made to Beasley and no deal is impending.

Beasley, 24, reached a “termination agreement” with the Phoenix Suns with two years left on his contract. Beasley was charged with marijuana possession in August which marks the second time Beasley has been arrested for marijuana charges during his tenure with Phoenix.

Beasley averaged 14.1 points-per-game during his two-year stint with the Heat in less than 30 minutes-per-game. He averaged a career-high 19.2 points with the Minnesota Timberwolves during the 2010-11 season.

The reason he keeps smoking weed is because he is stressed out! If he came to Miami he would not even be the  6th man but the 7 th man ....no pressure to carry a team.

Beasley will be much more efficient with Lebron and a host of shooters surrounding him.  Beasley won't have to do any thinking (thank goodness) just react.  As I stated elsewhere, the Heat should also bring in Lamar Odom as well.

The heat tend to go after battered players like birdman after the "computer" allegations, and now Beasley, the admitted "smoker". The heat get them cheap when they're self worth is down, what a pattern.

@bambam824 That would be considered good business sense, if, and only if, the player produces the desired results.  I would say the Heat have done very well the past couple of years spending the minimum required on players who have produced, i.e., Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis, Birdman, Shane Battier, and soon to be seen Greg Oden.  If Oden is able to produce at just a fraction, in addition to what the Heat have done, and continue to do with the big 3 and company, then I do not see how any other team in the NBA will be able to beat them in 7 games come playoff and finals time.  Indiana and San Antonio came real close, but real close don't cut it when you are playing for all the marbles.
