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 issues talent conquers all at the professional level so Beasley didn’t remain on the open market for long. He ended up with maybe the only team willing to take a chance on him at this point — the two-time defending champion Miami Heat.
