Re: Mike Beasley back on the Heat
The addition of Beasley gives the Heat another youthful piece alongside recently signed center Greg Oden, at a time when the Heat are facing a significant roster overhaul next summer, when the contracts of Allen, Battier, Lewis, James Jones and many others on the roster expire.
A combo forward, Beasley could set up as scoring relief for those times when James or Wade are off the floor. His opportunities could be further enhanced by the position-less approach adopted by coach Erik Spoelstra, who also guided Beasley during his initial two-season stint with the team. Beasley spent most of his time at power forward under Spoelstra.
Only five players remain with the Heat from Beasley's initial tenure: Wade, Chalmers, Anthony, Jones and Udonis Haslem.
