Reports: Heat not interested in Michael Beasley for many reasons


The are not going to bring back free agent forward because the coaching staff does not trust him, . They recently signed guard Tyler Johnson .

A person with direct knowledge cited several reasons for the Heat’s lack of interest: Inconsistency, lack of trust in his defense (and ability to execute the Heat’s defensive system), and maturity/focus issues, which are still a concern even though he improved somewhat in that regard last season.

The Heatking Vincent Janssen’s move to Monterrey.The former Tottenham striker was sold to the Mexican giants last week.Van ‘t Schip told AD says Janssen will join a Monterrey which boast the best facilities in Mexico.”So in that respect Vincent has made a go has told Beasley it has not closed the door on a return, though Miami never really tells any free agent that it has ruled out a return. But Miami hasn’t made an offer to him, either, and it appears barring a change of heart that the Heat has moved on, having given Beasley’s jersey number to Williams.

There were legitimately encouraging signs from Beasley last season when he got on the floor. Early in the year, he , and overall he was more efficient than ever before, shooting 50 percent from the field and 39 percent from behind the 3-point line.

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra went long stretches without giving Beasley any minutes, though, and completely yanked him from the rotation in the playoffs before giving him a try in Game 5 of the Finals. It wasn’t because of one specific issue, :

A party familiar with the situation insists there was no “flashpoint” last season, no incident yet to surface, no off-court or locker-room episode that doomed the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.

Instead, there was a mention of maturity, how there was an upgrade in that aspect over Bee says last season’s Champions League final loss has strengthened Tottenham’s resolve.Spurs were defeated 2-0 by Premier League rivals Liverpool in their first ever Champions League final.And Kane says they are using heartbreak in Madrid to motivate asley’s first two seasons with the team, but perhaps not enough to earnlskjaer remains unconvinced by his attack’s goalscoring power.Solskjaer thinks he needs a ‘proven’ goalscorer despite having Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Odion Ighalo in his squad at Old Trafford.Despite the quartet doing well, the Evening St renewed trust for a season when every game has to matter. 

Those in the Miami organization know Beasley better than anybody around the league, as president Pat Riley drafted him No. 2 overall back in 2008, the same year Spoelstra took over as head coach. If Riley and Spoelstra have given up on him a second time — they traded him for cash and draft picks in 2010 — that is not good news for his career. Neither is the fact that, , LeBron James was “not pleased with Beasley’s focus.”

The 25-year-old still has talent, and the Los Angeles Lakers with some interest in signing him. The Sun Sentinel speculated that the Indiana Pacers might consider him in the wake of Paul George’s injury, but it’s been extremely quiet on the Beasley rumor front this summer. The same was true this time last year — the Heat only signed him in September, and they gave him a fully unguaranteed minimum contract. If he’s going to stay in the league next season, he might have to accept the same terms.
