image from: lastangryfan.com The Miami Heat have announced that they have signed Michael Beasley to a non-guaranteed contract, which means that he will get an invite to training camp and get a chance to make their final roster. Should he make their final roster, he will make $1.027M for the 2013-14 season. Beasley was just waived by the Phoenix Suns for his laziness and trouble with the law for marijuana, which makes him finding a new home so fast somewhat surprising. However, Beasley is still only 24 years old and he has a ton of potential.  Given his contract is non-guaranteed at this moment, this really is no risk at all for the Heat to bring him in. What makes this story even more interesting is the fact that the Miami Heat were the team that drafted him #2 overall in the 2008 NBA Draft and then proceeded to trade him to the Minnesota Timberwolves after his second season. The Heat certainly gave up on him pretty quickly, which makes them deciding to give him one more shot somewhat of a puzzle, especially since they are coming off two straight championships. To say the least, they certainly have not missed Michael Beasley at all. That being said, if Michael Beasley could morph into the player that they thought he would back in 2008, and if he plays really well for just a shade over $1M, then signing Beasley truly is a brilliant move by the Heat. At the moment, it is too early to start making projections on what this move means for Beasley and for the Heat, but it is certain that this is a move that just might make the Heat a lot more dangerous than they were before. For not having a lot of cap space to work with, the Heat have been able to now add two potentially big-time players this summer in Greg Oden and Michael Beasley. While it is important to note that they are at the moment “potentially” big-time players, the very fact that the Heat have added two such guys with this kind of potential over the summer has to worry their opponents. —Ben Parker: follow me on twitter @nba_lord  The post Heat Sign Michael Beasley To A Non-Guaranteed Contract appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
