It's pretty obvious that Beasley's not going to do too much to help Dwayne Wade win another championship. Now that he's solidified himself as another moronic wannabe-G, what do you think Miami can get for him in a trade?

Tyrus Thomas and Expiring
But on the serious note It's a big risk to trade anything valuable considering his decision making skills, attitude and maturity problems

We'll give you Willie Green and 2015 2nd rounder.

But in all seriousness, his value isnt too high because of what Nocioni basically just said.

Why is it clear that he won't be any help?
He's such a efficient scoring and we saw how well he played when he started.

Way more then you think. He is young and can flat out score. He just needs to grow up and kept under wraps. Someone will be more then willing to take that risk, im not saying everyteam but at least 3 or 4.

Miami could have gotten Boozer a few weeks ago. Now they would be left getting something else more unproven. I've never thought that Beasley was the right guy to put with Wade as a big part of the franchise. They should trade him and shoot for a better PF like Boozer or Bosh next summer.

It's funny how alot of Non-Heat fans love attacking the Heat and It's players in any possible post. Michael Beasley is 20 years old now with a year under his belt. If you compare Mike to other players his Ceiling is VERY high.

He Finished April having 20.6ppg 8rebs in 31.3mins

He avg 13.9 and 5.4 rebs OFF THE BENCH...You name me any rookie off the bench who put up those numbers this season?

I believe Memphis offered Hasheem Thabeet for Beasley on draft night, but Miami turned it down. Perhaps that scenario could pop up again during the trade deadline.

11 and 9 in 25 minutes on worse percentages vs. 14 and 5.5 in 24 minutes on better percentages....

Love was a great rebounder, but was pretty ****** on the offensive end. I'm just wondering how the hell at 6'10", even with all the free garbage buckets he got off his rebounds, that he shot 45.9% from the field.

Miami Would Never Trade Him Even Afther What Happend With The Weed Because No One Cares

Miami Heat 2009-2010 Dream Lineup
C. J.O'neal/J.Maglorie/J.Anthony
Pf. M.Beasely/U.Haslem
Sf. Q.Rich/J.Jones
SG. D.Wade/D.Cook
PG. M.Chamlers/R.Alston/P.Beaverly


Is Rafer Alston on the Miami Heat? Could of sworn he was on the NJ Nets, unless the nets bought him out.

Btw.. I'd Love if a team liek OKC traded for Michael Beasley, but I do agree that Beasley will not be traded; especially that D-wade will be a CHICAGO BULL NEXT SEASON OH YAHHHHHHHHHH

If I were the Heat, rather than losing D-wade next season to chicago.. I would try trading him to chicago; hopefully get some talent for him.

Love's PER-18.39, tops among all rookies. Only Dwight Howard had a better rebound rate. He had a higher True Shooting % than Beasley.
Beasley's PER-17.28

Beasley also gets higher usage, meaning Love didn't even have plays run for him, and was still more efficient. Not everything can be looked at with _pg stats.

As of right now? Miami would be dumb to trade him unless they received proven talent back...someone like Paul Milsap/David Lee...someone who doesn't need the ball in their hands to dominate. That's Wade's job right now. But he's still to young and still has too much potential to trade him. Miami would be silly to trade him unless it was an offer they could not refuse.

On that same token, Beasley was on the perimeter much more and had to take on the scoring load with Wade out as he was playing with 3 or 4 non factors at a time.

Love was an amazing rebounder last year, but neither is a great defender and Beasley is the better offensive player.

Maybe Love did have the better rookie year; you may be right. Beasley is still the better talent, athlete and still should have the better career IMO. I sure as hell wouldn't trade Beasley for Love.

And I definitely think that the idea that Beasley can't help Wade to a championship is a ridiculous one.

Oh, please don't mistake what I am saying as criticism on Beasley. I think he can be a very good player, no doubt. I have always been high on him.
I don't think the Wolves would give you Love for Beasley either.

Love has been underrated his entire life. National High School player of the year. Pac-10 player of the year, beating Mayo, Westbrook, etc.
He is already an ELITE rebounder, as good as anyone in the NBA. He is one of the best passing bigs to come along in a very long time.
He will continue to fly under the radar, and that is fine with Wolves fans, trust me.

Does he have limitations? Sure. He will always be up there on how many shots he gets blocked, and will never be able to defend a Gasol type who can just turn and shoot. But he will be a hell of a player as well.

I still think Beasley will be a GLenn Robinson. 22/8, with zero defense. ANd that isn't a bad thing.

Paul Milsap and David Lee are no more proven than Beasley, and nowhere near as talented as Beasley....

There's no way Riley would consider making either deal...

Milsap hasn't even had a full season as a starter and Lee has put up nothing more than rebound numbers as the only above average player in a system that inflates stats....

Nobody's questioning his talent or his ability to improve as a player. The kid has a lot of potential, no doubt. The problem is that if you're building a team around a drug user who's capable of making this kind of ******** decision, you're going to push away families/children from buying tickets to your games.

Of course nobody cares about drug use if they're winning, but Beasley isn't the type of player who's going to take you to take you to the playoffs on his back. If he ever gets that good, he'll be tradable again. But if he gets that good, he won't beon the block ;).

b_rad23
08-22-2009, 04:37 PM

Per 36 minutes last year Beasley vs Lee:

Beasley: 20.1 and 7.9 at age 19 making 4 million
Lee: 16.6 and 12.1 in D'Antoni's system at age 25 looking to make 10+ million

I'd guess that'd be more appealing to a team who already has their scorers, but not to the Heat, where he'd be the second option on offense...that's not going to get it done...

Milsap and Lee aren't my examples but if I'm considering those two in particular then I can think of at least two areas in which they've proven themselves. The position they play and their consistency. But yeah.. I agree. I can think of plenty of reasons why NY would trade Lee for Beasley but not as many reasons for why the trade works for Miami.

All things about two player's being even (equal age, skill, talent, consistency, salary and baggage) then maybe you trade them to see how they do in a different environment. But I doubt the Heat can trade Beasley for another player who's comparable in most areas with the exception of having less baggage or red flags. Thinking of Beasley's value a different way.. if I'm redoing the 2008 draft and I'm the Heat I wouldn't have taken Beasley at 2.

Theres nothing worth trading him for. For the amount of money he makes plus the amount of skill he has, we would lose on that deal. Everyone has smoked weed at some point in their lives.

you're on some stronger stuff than Beasley

Lee gets outplayed by Haslem every time they meet.

Beasley isn't being traded for anything under a proven allstar.

Except that Beasley makes 5 mil for the next couple years.


NOT HAPPENING

The man averaged 21/9 when haslem went down in April. 21/9 on 55 % @ 20.

Would Miami really be interested in a Gay/Beasley swap though? Keep in mind that Gay will be a RFA in 2010, so that would really eat into their cap space. It's fair talent-wise, but Gay's contract status makes it a bit tougher to work out.

I'm still praying for a Thabeet/Beasley swap, but Thabeet is probably way too unproven for Miami to look into that kind of deal.

I'm ok with a one time speeding incident while Rose has been in the NBA. I'm ok with the fact that he's been a reliable starter from day 1 and his seriousness about the game paid off with winning ROY. I look at SuperCoolBeas and I wonder if this guy is more interested in having fun off court fun than in playing basketball. Maybe he grows up.. or maybe he stays a kid forever like Stephen Marbury.. As a Chicago fan, I'm happy that's the Heats problem and not ours. :D

Z-Bo's now generally seen as a fat, inefficient player, etc.. but he probably had some potential to justify the contract Portland gave him. The point being that Portland gambled on Z-bo and lost. The Heat are gambling on Beasley. I'm not suggesting that Beasley is going to be a disappointment like Z-bo.. I'm suggesting that Beasley's demonstrated level of maturity isn't encouraging.

K guys Beasley is Just 20 years old!!!! Everyone is so quick to hate on him and he can't even drink legally yet. Everybody needs to calm down and let him play..some of the better scouts and talent evaluators in the league believe he could potentially be a Carmelo Anthony type. Considering that and the fact he's only 20 should tell everyone to just back off for now. If he doesn't reach his potential 3 or 4 yrs down the road then you can start talking bad about him. When he was given the minutes last year though he averaged around 20 pts 8 reb. Did no one else notice that? Considering the amount of time he played he still put up some good numbers for a rookie year. This year he will get more playing time and possibly start so we'll see how he does; I know we got QRich but he's on the team to provide a little scoring punch off the bench not to start.

Everyone loves to hate on Michael Beasley. Hes 20 years old and hes a good kid. Smokin weed doesnt make you a bad person (after all damn near every president was smoking it when they were his age). Yet why is he demonized? Derrick Rose had someone stand in for him for the SATs. that is a calculated action that you can't excuse. He also got caught posing for a pic throwin up GD. That was not a joke or messing around as he said when he apologized. come on. look where he is from. damn near everyone he grew up with is prolly GD and he was represented his people, and givin love the gangsters, not joking. Yet somehow he is jesus christ and gets a free pass. talk about questionable decision making. No one acts as if he is untouchable or immature or that he is a high risk player to keep around. yet beasley has always been considerd a bad seed cuz he went to a few high schools and stole a pizza when he was 15 and because he smokes weed. yeah maybe hes immature, thats because he has not fully matured yet. Hes only 20. no one is fully mature at that point.

So I'm sure all of you would agree that rose's offences were more severe than beasleys, why isnt he gettin a bad rap. I mean all of this is goin on about memphis losing their 28 win season and I barely even hear drose mentioned. this is actually a huge deal and if it were beasley the media would make a much bigger deal about it.

Brandon jennings is looked at in a bad light like beasley and is known for being immature and as a guy with questionable character cuz he bucked the system and went to europe. living abroad will make you mature real quick, and im sure hes grown up alot in his 1 year being a pro. much more than any college freshman doin nothing but playin ball and partyin.

I guess he should have done what rose did. then hed be an all american future star with nothing but a bright future. ha. jennings made a tough choice and took on a challenge and persevered. he should get love and respect for that but insteas he gets clowned. but i guess having a fly flat top and gettin put on the internet using a swear word is worse than trying to cheat the system.

Oh yeah, and I love how people say beasles season was a flop. and that hes a bust. come on. his per minute numbers are better than mayo rose westbrook and lopez. his PER is high as well and his numbers when starting show what hes capable of. Miami were contending and therefore rightly brought the kid on slowly, they werent gonna be like chicago or cleaveland and hire a puppet coach to baby him and let him do whatever he wanted. beasley is due for a monster year. 20ppg and 7 boards if he gets 35 mins a night.

Everyone loves to hate on Michael Beasley. Hes 20 years old and hes a good kid. Smokin weed doesnt make you a bad person (after all damn near every president was smoking it when they were his age). Yet why is he demonized? Derrick Rose had someone stand in for him for the SATs. that is a calculated action that you can't excuse. He also got caught posing for a pic throwin up GD. That was not a joke or messing around as he said when he apologized. come on. look where he is from. damn near everyone he grew up with is prolly GD and he was represented his people, and givin love the gangsters, not joking. Yet somehow he is jesus christ and gets a free pass. talk about questionable decision making. No one acts as if he is untouchable or immature or that he is a high risk player to keep around. yet beasley has always been considerd a bad seed cuz he went to a few high schools and stole a pizza when he was 15 and because he smokes weed. yeah maybe hes immature, thats because he has not fully matured yet. Hes only 20. no one is fully mature at that point.

So I'm sure all of you would agree that rose's offences were more severe than beasleys, why isnt he gettin a bad rap. I mean all of this is goin on about memphis losing their 28 win season and I barely even hear drose mentioned. this is actually a huge deal and if it were beasley the media would make a much bigger deal about it.

Brandon jennings is looked at in a bad light like beasley and is known for being immature and as a guy with questionable character cuz he bucked the system and went to europe. living abroad will make you mature real quick, and im sure hes grown up alot in his 1 year being a pro. much more than any college freshman doin nothing but playin ball and partyin.

I guess he should have done what rose did. then hed be an all american future star with nothing but a bright future. ha. jennings made a tough choice and took on a challenge and persevered. he should get love and respect for that but insteas he gets clowned. but i guess having a fly flat top and gettin put on the internet using a swear word is worse than trying to cheat the system.

who's more inmature? the kid who forget to take the dope out of the pic or the fan that just wants to throw him away without listening to him?

id say the latter. at least, the former is having lots of fun and making a nice salary. or may be that what just bothers the fan.

The biggest difference between Rose and Beasley is that all of Rose incidents happened way before he was in the NBA, I think both of his incidents came in high school (SAT and GD) while if you call this an incident, this would be Beasley's second incident in one year in the NBA.
