Miami Heat Could Trade Michael Beasley this Summer

There is a fairly strong chance that not a single one of those finishing five will be back with the Heat next fall when this soon-to-be-over series will be a distant, distasteful memory.

Yes, even Beasley -- the second overall pick of the 2008 draft.

What you may have missed on the eve of this series was a quote from Heat president Pat Riley that he seeks to build a dynasty this summer when Miami will have somewhere in the area of $24 million, as things stand now, to spend in free agency.

And as well as Dwyane Wade's supporting cast played Friday night in a gut-wrenching 100-98 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their first-round series, it remains a supporting cast too anemic to be part of what Riley has planned for the future. Richardson, Wright and Haslem are on expiring contracts, and Chalmers' contract has a team option.

Dwyane Wade: ‘I’m tired of answering questions about Beasley’

Michael Beasley has scored 19 points through the first two games of Miami's first round series against Boston and Dwyane Wade is tired of answering questions about it.
"I'm tired of answering questions about Beasley not doing this, not doing that," Wade said. "It's on Michael."
Beasley was the second overall pick in 2008 and is undoubtedly a talented scorer.
"It's going to click one day," Wade said of Beasley, as the Heat looked ahead to Friday's Game 3 at AmericanAirlines Arena. "Hopefully, it's Game 3. He has the ability to really make us a tough team to play."

Bosh: Friendship with Wade Not a Factor

Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were teammates on the USA's 2008 gold-medal Olympic team, and both are represented by Chicago-based agent Henry Thomas. But Bosh said the connections with Wade should not be overstated when it comes to potentially being teammates.

"I know Dwyane a little bit, not a lot," Bosh said. "We haven't spent that much time outside of USA Basketball. People always are going to look for some kind of connection. That's understandable. People are going to try to make things up. There is always going to be speculation. So I'll let everybody write their stories and keep going about my business."

Dwyane Wade will cover NBA LIVE 06

'This is quite an honor to be named cover athlete of NBA LIVE in just my second year as a professional," Wade said. "When you look back at some of the great players who have had this opportunity, it's exciting to be a part of the EA SPORTS family and contribute to a game I've been playing for more than 10 years.'

Electronic Arts announced today that NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade will serve as cover athlete and spokesman for NBA LIVE 06, scheduled for release this fall under the EA SPORTS™ brand. Wade is in his second season with the Miami HEAT, where he set single-season franchise records for points per game (24.1) and total points scored (1,854) in helping to lead the HEAT to the top seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

NBA LIVE 06 builds upon the depth and authenticity that the NBA LIVE franchise has delivered for more than a decade and that made last year the best-selling version in the history of the series. With advancements in gameplay and enhanced player graphics, the sport of basketball is elevated to a whole new level in NBA LIVE 06 with the superstars of the game looking and playing more like their real-life counterparts than ever before. Players can feel the emotion and intensity of the complete basketball experience with an up-tempo, fast-break, and physical brand of basketball that yields improved play in the transition game and real-life collisions in the paint.

Wade has emerged quickly as one of the most explosive players in the NBA in just his second season, a year that saw him become just the 10th player since 1979 to finish in the NBA's top 10 in both scoring (24.1) and assists (6.8) per game. A unanimous NBA All-Rookie First-Team selection a year ago, Wade was a member of the U.S. National Senior Men's Basketball Team last summer before returning to have an All-Star season for the HEAT this year. Wade, who was selected to the NBA All-Star Game in February, became one of just seven NBA players in history to average at least 25 points, eight assists and six rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the floor in a playoff series as he helped lead the HEAT to a recent four-game sweep of the New Jersey Nets in the first round of the 2005 NBA Playoffs. Wade was recently selected as one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in an issue that hit newsstands at the end of April.

Developed in Vancouver, B.C., by EA Canada, the studio which is also home to the popular NBA STREET and NCAA® March Madness® franchises, NBA LIVE 06 will be available on the PlayStation® 2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube™, and PC. The game also will be available for the first time on the PSP™ handheld entertainment system.

Wade, the only NBA player featured in this issue will be joining other athletesm such as soccer star David Beckham, tennis phenom Maria Sharapova and former NFL player Tim Green. Alonzo Mourning, another Heat player was already featured in the issue in the mid-1990s.

Dwayne Wade insured to the Miami Herald that ''All of them will get a copy, no question,'' Wade said. ''I might hand-deliver it to their rooms.''

Wade's teammate Damon Jones, known for his lack of humility - he refers to himself as ''every woman's dream,'' - will certainly have a hard time accepting Dwyane Wade's achievement as one of People Magazine "50 Most Beautiful People".
