Wojnarowski: Heat considering signing Beasley

Marc Serota

Several Miami-based reporters were quick to push back on Wojnarowski's story that several Heat players are interested in a reunion with the No. 2 pick in 2008.

Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported today that the Miami Heat are considering signing troubled free agent forward Michael Beasley, who played his first two seasons in Miami. Wojnarowski said that several of the Heat's veterans are supportive of a reunion, and Beasley has interest in reuniting with the back-to-back NBA champions.

Soon after Wojnarowski tweeted a link to the aforementioned article, several Miami-based reporters pushed back on the story. The Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman said a source told him that there is "no chance" the Heat would sign Beasley. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Ira Winderman reported that Wojnarowski's story is "not true." A source told the Palm Beach Post's Ethan J. Skolnick that people shouldn't put too much credence into the report.

Anyone who follows the NBA knows that Wojnarowski is a great reporter and is usually ahead of his peers. But the Miami-based writers are reliable, too. On a pure talent basis, Beasley is a better scorer than, say, Rashard Lewis. He's also young, and several of the Heat's supporting players are already at the tail-end of their careers -- Ray Allen, Shane Battier, Chris Andersen, etc. But the Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns have given up on him in the past two years, and Beasley would probably struggle if he didn't have the ball in his hands much.
