How These Five Young Players Fit Into The Miami Heat’s Future

Obviously the biggest name of this group is none other than Beasley. The former No. 2 overall pick began his third stint with the franchise in late February when he was signed to a 10-day contract due to the roster’s lack of depth.

The 26-year-old forward finished the year with per game averages of 8.8 points, 3.7 boards and 1.3 assists on 43.4 percent shooting. He averaged 21 minutes a contest.

Beasley’s biggest game of the year was easily his lone start of the season—the 105-101 victory over Philly. He scored 34 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished eight assists on 12-of-27 from the field. He went to the free-throw line 11 times and converted on 10 of them.

There is little doubt that the veteran forward has a future with the Heat. If he can continue to provide a scoring punch off the bench, he could very well be the team’s sixth man for 2015-16.
