NBA Rumors for Sunday, August 24
InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 3:00 p.m. ET. More NBA rumors stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog.
While the Heat still are eligible to retain Beasley, the numerology speaks otherwise. Williams has been added in the swing role at forward Beasley held last season. Luol Deng has been signed as LeBron James' replacement as the starting small forward, with Danny Granger the expected backup. South Florida Sun Sentinel
Elsewhere, interest has been tepid, to a degree similar to last summer, when Beasley was not added by the Heat until Sept. 11. There was a workout with the Los Angeles Lakers that ended without a contract offer. There yet could be interest from the Indiana Pacers, now that Shawn Marion has instead signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers, leaving the Pacers to reconsider 2014-15 life without Paul George (and whether Chris Copeland would be a preferable Plan B to Beasley).

With Shawn Marion's free-agent move to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dirk Nowitzki now stands as the lone player who has remained with the Dallas Mavericks since they defeated the Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals (center Tyson Chandler left and since was reacquired by trade this offseason). By contrast, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers and Udonis Haslem remain from the Heat team that lost that series, one of only two playoff series the Heat lost in the LeBron James era.

Happy 49th Birthday, Reggie Miller! Miller is a retired NBA player who spent his entire 18 year NBA career with the Pacers. A five-time All-Star selection, Miller led the NBA in free throw accuracy five times and won a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics. Pacers.com Blog
