The Miami Heat took a chance again on Michael Beasley after they had no problem letting him go a few years ago to the Minnesota Timberwolves. But after some time up north and then out west with the Phoenix Suns, it appears that the Heat are ready to see if they can milk anything out of Beasley.
Really, like most signings the Heat make, the playoffs were very much in the design for signing Beasley but he’s already missed one game and the question now becomes whether or not he’s going to be effective at all for Miami in they series.
It hasn’t been that bad of a season for Beasley as while he’s only averaging just over 15 minutes per game and has stared just twice, he’s shooting almost 50 percent from the field and has played in over 55 games this year. He’s a rotational player but that’s exactly what the Heat need in the postseason.
Maybe they don’t need it against the Bobcats, but they’ll need Beasley at some point during the postseason and when that time comes, the question is can he step up — or at the very least stay out of the way?
