MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Heat have re-signed Michael Beasley, who spent the first two years of his up-and-down career with the team and became a free agent when the Phoenix Suns bought him out earlier this month.
Beasley was the No. 2 pick in the 2008 draft by the Heat, and averaged 14.3 points in those two seasons. He then was traded to Minnesota in 2010, and signed with Phoenix as a free agent.
Heat President Pat Riley says the team decided that Beasley ``can help us.''
Beasley was arrested earlier this offseason in Arizona on charges of felony marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. It was the latest in a series of incidents involving the drug that have plagued his NBA career.
