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.
