A rumor started on Twitter, I believe, and quickly spread by Ira Winderman
. If the Heat can't get Mike Miller, they may look to trade for Jason Kapono. Their offer would reportedly be Michael Beasley.
This is pretty much as close to a no-brainer as you can get. The Sixers would save $1,679,200 this season (the difference between Beasley's contract and Kapono's). They'd get a guy who was the #2 pick in 2008, and there's really no risk. The Sixers would hold a team option for next season ($6.2M) which they could choose not to exercise, thus making him an expiring contract.
I'm not a fan of Beasley's game at all. I'm definitely not a fan of his off-court antics, but we're talking about getting a vastly superior talent, saving money and really adding no risk (assuming the team can make a clear headed decision at the end of the season).
If this deal is offered - and I have a very, very hard time believing it will be - Ed Stefanski absolutely has to take it.
