Michael Beasley: I Don’t Want to Leave Miami

Rampant trade speculation has Heat forward Michael Beasley bracing for a potential move, but he believes he is best suited to remain in Miami.

Beasley repeatedly has surfaced as the Heat’s most valuable asset who could be dealt by the Feb. 18 trade deadline to acquire Amare Stoudemire from Phoenix.

“If they decide to trade me, I don’t want to go,” Beasley said before Wednesday’s game against the Hawks. “Amare’s a great player, so you understand whatever happens. You understand that it’s a business. You just have to focus on your job.”
