Well, we have another NBA homecoming. Michael Beasley, who has been dominating China like a modern day Genghis Khan — and who was acquired by the Wolves under the reign of David Kahn — is going back to Miami.
Beasley has reportedly signed a 10-day contract with the Heat, making this his third stint with the team. He was drafted No. 2 overall by Miami in 2008, then came to Minnesota in 2010, signed with Phoenix in 2012, was waived in 2013 and signed with the Heat … and has spent this season playing in China, where he averaged 28.6 points and 10.4 rebounds (while scoring 59 points in the All-Star Game).
That output, combined with Chris Bosh’s serious medical condition, convinced the Heat to bust open another box of Skittles and try Beasley again.
He had some great moments with the Wolves and a lot of not-so-great-moments. We’ll never forget the time he rubbed Anthony Tolliver’s knee instead of his own knee.
We’ll also never forget the time we had commenter Dan write this guest post from his estate sale.
Guess what we’re trying to say here is it’s good to have Beas back in the NBA.
