Miami Heat Non-Committal on Michael Beasley, Greg Oden

The Miami Heat have three available roster spots after re-signing many of last season’s players after LeBron James decided to leave for Cleveland. Those players did not include Michael Beasley and Greg Oden, however, and the two project players have yet to sign to a team.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Beasley has been working out with Kevin Durant in Los Angeles this summer, and teams have been encouraged by the way he handled himself as a reserve for the Heat last season.

Jared Karnes, Beasley’s agent, said Thursday he has had more than one conversation with the Heat but “nothing has resulted in a deal. [Other] teams have called expressing interest. There has been quite a bit of activity the past four days.

As for Greg Oden, Jackson says he is in limbo.

As for Oden, the Heat has not informed his agent, Mike Conley Sr., if the team wants him back.

“They said they’ll get back to us,” Conley said. “A couple of teams have inquired. He wants to be able to play.”

It’s understandable why the Heat have yet to make offers to Beasley or Oden. With plenty of other talented free agents still available (*cough* Shawn Marion *cough

* Greg Stiemsma *cough*) Miami has options.

When Chris Bosh’s deal is officially announced, the Heat will have 12 players on the roster and will only be able to add players to the veteran minimum of $1.4 million.
