  1. Report: Lamar Odom had lengthy meeting with Doc Rivers, Clippers

    Nov 16, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom has had a troublesome last few months, reportedly being involved with heavy drug use and being arrested on DUI charges. But if all of that is truly in Odom’s rearview mirror, then he may have a chance at a roster spot with the team he played for last season. Doc Rivers and other…

    Our grades from Monday around the NBA, or what you missed while wearing your $550 sweatpants…. Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks. The big German with the soft touch reached an NBA milestone Tuesday — he passed Jerry West to move into 16th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Appropriately he did it with a couple consecutive…

    The Heat are bringing Michael Beasley along extremely slowly in hopes that their veteran leadership and championship environment can break him of his apathetic basketball habits on the court, and his historically poor decisions off of it. Beasley saw his first minutes of action this season in the Heat’s fourth game, a win over the…

  5. Michael Beasley, Roger Mason Jr. make Heat’s 15-man roster

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    The Heat waived Eric Griffin and Justin Hamilton on Saturday, bringing the team’s roster to the league maximum of 15 players in advance of opening night against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday. That means that veterans Michael Beasley and Roger Mason Jr. remain with the team for now, which was somewhat expected. But it’s worth…

    LeBron James

    The last time the Heat and the Spurs played in Miami, it was Game 7 of the NBA Finals last June, in a contest that meant the world to each respective franchise. When they met again for the first time since then in a preseason contest in Miami on Saturday, the game meant absolutely nothing.…

    Eric Bledsoe

    Last season: Believe it or not, the Suns actually had playoff aspirations when the regular season began. The front office believed that Michael Beasley would be different in Phoenix than he had been anywhere else, and mandated that he be given a chance to be a difference-maker in the lineup. Once it became clear that…

  8. Heat say Beasley’s injury wasn’t caused by the punches he landed to his own head

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley was caught on video punching himself in the head a couple of times after a missed shot during the Heat’s preseason win over the Pistons on Thursday, and he received treatment from team trainers following the game to reduce swelling above his eye. Putting two and two together, it was originally believed that…

  9. Report: Michael Beasley punched self after travel call, needed treatment

    Michael Beasley

    Above you see the video evidence that Michael Beasley did indeed punch himself in the head after getting called for traveling in Thursday night’s preseason game against the Pistons (thanks to Ben at The Point Forward for finding that). We’ll also say it doesn’t look like much — more of a forehead slap “D’oh” than…

  10. Dwyane Wade, Michael Beasley both sit for Heat Monday

    Michael Beasley

    After shootaround on Monday, LeBron James was asked who had stood out so far with their play at camp and without hesitation he said Dwyane Wade. He said Wade was turning back the clock. Which is nice in October but actually needed in May. Wade is going to get some rest along the way to…

  11. Michael Beasley’s latest plan: ‘I’m not going to be looking at not making mistakes or trying not to mess up’

    Oct 2, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    The Michael Beasley experiment is officially underway in Miami, after the Suns negotiated a buyout of his contract following a disappointing first season in Phoenix that came along with it some off-the-court legal troubles that helped make the franchise’s decision to part ways with the troubled forward a little bit easier. Beasley is being given…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Last season: The Heat won their second straight championship in an epic seven-game battle against a Spurs team that had every chance to take home the title instead. On their way, Miami flirted with history by stringing together a 27-game winning streak that lasted late into March, and finished the season by winning an incredible…

    CHICAGO – The Bulls are expected by many to be among the top teams in the Eastern Conference when factoring in the return of Derrick Rose. But while teams like Brooklyn, New York, and Indiana added talent through trades or free agency, Chicago lost a couple of guys who helped the team make its playoff…

    heat beasley

    After Michael Beasley had problems both on and off the court during a tumultuous first year with the Phoenix Suns, the team decided to further its fresh start under a new GM and new head coach by negotiating a buyout of his contract, which made Beasley an unrestricted free agent. Despite his well-chronicled history of…

    Michael Beasley is back with the Miami Heat… at least for training camp. The Miami Heat have signed Beasley to a training camp contract, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and confirmed by the team. The deal is for one year at the veteran minimum ($1 million for him) and this is…

  17. Report: Miami Heat considering signing Michael Beasley

    heat beasley

    There’s no way to put this mildly: The Michael Beasley free agent signing by the Phoenix Suns last summer was a disastrous one for the franchise. It led to the firing of head coach Alvin Gentry midway through last season, and when things had completely fallen apart by year’s end, it resulted in the firing…

  18. Lakers reportedly have interest in a young forward… Xavier Henry

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Driving in Los Angeles today I heard the broadcasters on the Lakers flagship station talking themselves into Michael Beasley. They gave it a lot of caveats — if he would take the league minimum (he’s going to have to) and if he plays within the system (he hasn’t anywhere else, don’t think this will be…

    Michigan State v Duke

    If you’re a big man who can knock down an outside shot you will play in Mike D’Antoni’s system. Which is good news for Lakers draft pick Ryan Kelly out of Duke. Now all he has to do is get on the court. Which may take longer than expected following another surgery on his right…

  20. Might the Lakers have an interest in Michael Beasley?

    Sep 4, 2013, 12:12 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    The short answer to the Michael Beasley question in Los Angeles should be a resounding “no,” for a variety of reasons. But believe it or not, the case can be made, so let’s break down exactly why it’s unlikely that the Lakers would bother to pursue the talented but troubled forward who was waived by…

    We’ve been telling you this was coming. Not long after Michael Beasley’s latest arrest for marijuana possession, our own Brett Pollakoff laid out how the Suns could use the stretch provision to lessen their hit in letting Beasley go. Then as part of the recent Caron Butler trade we told you that cleared out just…

    The allure of pro-am basketball isn’t what it was during the 2011 NBA lockout, but watching the best players in the world play basketball — wherever they’re at and regardless of their opponents — is still fun to watch on a lazy August day. And, because of that, we’re bringing you highlights of the 2013…

  23. It’s official: Caron Butler traded to Milwaukee Bucks

    Aug 29, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks get a Racine native who can help them out immediately at the three, where Carlos Delfino could be a little slow to come around following off-season foot surgery. The Phoenix Suns saved more than $5 million and brought in a couple interesting young pieces. The trade we first told you about last…

    Caron Butler

    It’s highly unlikely that Michael Beasley will still be a member of the Phoenix Suns by the time training camps open at the end of September. But if he is still on the roster, the team’s newest veteran would be happy to take a crack at steering him in the right direction. Caron Butler came…
