So Miami's roster consists of LeBron, Wade, Bosh, Mario Chalmers, their three draft picks from this year, and pretty much 7 hobos Pat Riley finds at a bus stop. Gotcha. This will totally work out well for them.

According to the ticker on ESPN, add Mike Miller to the Miami mix. Which is pretty ridiculously great for LeBron, Wade, and Bosh.
All three of those guys are saying they took "less", but nobody is saying HOW MUCH less. I wonder if the Heat will fill out their roster and THEN officially sign those three guys for whatever is left over.

Wow, I know nothing much about Beasley but after reading the stories, this sounds like a bargain for the T-Wolves. Still wondering how they ship Big Al, though. (Or by this point, should I say "...IF they ship Big Al?")
Originally posted by Psycho PenguinBeasley has some motivation issues and is a known drug user, but getting him away from South Beach might help. He didn't seem to get in quite as much trouble in Kansas.
"known drug user" I think translates into a little pot. I agree a change of scenery would do him good. Here at K-State he was a good player and under control. He's even admitted it would have been better if he has stayed here and matured a bit. He's getting counseling for his psychological issues now and could be a steal.
The Heat seem to be turning into the Kansas City A's of the 50's/60's, existing solely to facilitate the trade needs of bigger teams. Need a top-flight player to get your franchise back to prominence? Call the Wolves and get Garnett. Need to clear cap space so you can sign all the top FA's? Call the Wolves and give them your gigantic draft bust, they'll take him.
Beasley checked himself into a rehab center in Houston before the '09-10 season. He had a decent second year, being traded (and left out of the Bosh/LeBron/Wade mix) could be enough to motivate him to show Miami what a mistake they made and turn him into the Kevin Durant clone some folks thought he could become.
I'm going to listen to the podcast shortly, but Simmons' footnote in his draft diary where he defends Kahn and compares him to Sam Presti, who he likes for how he's built the Thunder, acknowledged that Kahn isn't as bad as Simmons likes to make him out...
