Miami Heat and 5 NBA Teams That Should Take a Risk on Michael Beasley
Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports

The Phoenix Suns have released Michael Beasley after reaching a termination agreement with the troubled small forward, according to NBA.com.

While it wasn't a shocking move considering Beasley's August arrest, it doesn't mean that his NBA career is over.

Beasley is an exceptionally gifted player who has the potential to be a real difference maker for an NBA team. To shift from having a negative impact on his team to having a positive one, Beasley needs more structure and leadership than most teams are willing to give to a player who's had as many chances as Beasley has.

The good news is that there are teams who need the kind of explosive scoring off the bench that Beasley can bring. The bad news, though, is that there are only a handful of teams that should even consider taking a stab at him.

Because the Suns and Beasley agreed to a contract termination, a team would be able to pick Beasley up for a very low cost.

Could a return to South Beach be just what Beasley needs to restart his troubled career? It's not out of the realm of possibility.
