I wouldnt call this for nothing. First the freed up cash helps sign who? Plus the rights to swap first rd picks could be huge. Anyone know what year Miami can elect to do this?

He is wrong. We (the Wolves) control the right to switch the pick with Miami for the next 7 years, after which if it has not been exercised the clause is voided. So this extra incentive was added in to potential help us (not Miami) down the road in the event something catastrophic happens to the big three 7 years from now.

Bad move.

Remember before the big three in Boston, Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins were considered headcases? And then when KG, Ray and Pierce were the alpha dogs, those two straightened right out.

Beas would have had the same thing happen. Now he'll toil on the Wolves... a shame.

the trade hasnt been made official yet. but everything i've read indicates the wolves

I'm hearing the first round pick was added by the Timberwolves. They control the right to swap first round picks with the Heat for the next seven years. In other words, if the Timberwolves decide not to swap first round picks, that clause of the trade is voided after seven seasons.

so itll pretty much take bron, wade and bosh to tear their acl's for this to happen

Here is the story from espn

Timberwolves get Beasley from Miami for picks
One of the amazing side stories to the Heat's successful pursuit of LeBron James was that they essentially gave away the second pick of the 2008 draft, Michael Beasley, after weeks of unsuccessfully trying to get something of value in return for him. The Wolves had to give Minnesota only a second-round pick and an opportunity to swap first-round picks at some point in the next seven years, at a time of Minnesota's choosing.


Beasley
I remain stubbornly fond of Beasley despite his struggles in Miami. For starters, he's played dramatically better as a power forward than a small forward, and hopefully that will be his full-time position in Minnesota. According to 82games.com, Beasley had a PER of 18.9 as a power forward and just 14.9 as a small forward, which is entirely consistent with his advantages as a player -- he's too quick for power forwards to guard, but not quite skilled enough on the blocks to take advantage of small forwards.

Even with that, he's not exactly chopped liver. He's averaged better than a point every two minutes for his NBA career and he's only 21 years old. This is exactly the type of player the Wolves should be looking to snatch as part of their rebuilding project -- young, talented players that circumstance places on their doorstep for a pittance.

Presumably this deal signals the eventual trade of Al Jefferson. Minnesota will likely start Kevin Love and Darko Milicic and bring Beasley off the bench, where he could contend for the league's sixth man award if he does what I think he can. It's going to be rough sledding on D when Beasley and Love share the court together, but he's at least dramatically more mobile than the wooden Jefferson.

You can't blame the Heat for taking this trade, obviously -- not when they were clearing the decks to bring three superstars together on one roster. That said, Minnesota made a really strong move to add Beasley so cheaply, and if the Wolves can combine it with a trade of Jefferson for a good wing player they could have a fairly respectable team this coming season.

Maybe the Heat should trade for Darko. Then they would have the #1, #2, #4, and #5 picks from the 2003 draft class.

Beasley's now the front runner for the MIP. Hopefully the coach makes Beasley to first option.

Kevin durant had this to say.

The Wolves are getting a stud in Beasley. It wasn't a good situation for him in South Beach. He'll be your starting PF guaranteed!
