The two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat are considering the possibility of bringing back troubled free-agent forward Michael Beasley league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Several of the Heat's key veteran players are supportive of the signing of Beasley and he has a strong interest in returning to the franchise responsible for taking him with the second overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft sources told Yahoo.

No offer has been made and no deal is considered imminent sources said.

The Phoenix Suns reached a buyout agreement with Beasley on the remaining two years of his contract last week. Beasley 24 was charged for marijuana possession in an August arrest adding to his considerable history of issues surrounding pot.

Beasley left Phoenix with approximately $7 million of the $9 million owed him on an original three-year $18 million contract.
