Beasley, on the other hand, has proved he can contribute — when his head is in the game and when he's not causing trouble for a franchise with off-the-court problems, such as the marijuana-possession arrest in August that spurred the Phoenix Suns to release him. So far, Beasley has said all the right things. "I've seen a lot. I've been through a lot. I've experienced a lot. I'm humbled. It definitely humbled me," Beasley says. "I'm definitely a different person — not as carefree. More aware of life, not just basketball, life period. "I'm coming here with an open mind. I'm coming here knowing this team doesn't need me. I'm coming here to work hard, stay out of the way and just have fun." USA Today Sports

As an organization, the Heat are loyal, and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra referred to Beasley as family. "I pretty much know what this organization is all about," Beasley says. "It's a world-class organization, not to say anything bad about any other organization. Me, at this point in my life and my career, I just didn't need to guess anymore. This is the perfect place for me. I just didn't have to deal with uncertainty. "It's a blessing. I'm humbled by it. I'm grateful that they still even care." USA Today Sports

But Beasley, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and team officials said the wound above Beasley's right eye was the result of an inadvertent blow he took from Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko as he attempted to block a shot in the third quarter, not from a self-inflicted punch. "I watched the video, and it does look like I knocked the mess out of myself," Beasley said before Friday's preseason game against the Charlotte Bobcats at the Sprint Center. "I had everybody in the world calling me and asking, 'Why you so crazy?'" ESPN.com

Wade continues to push and prod Michael Beasley during camp. "Now that he's got a couple of days in Miami Heat training camp, he sees it's a little different than he's experience the last few years," Wade said of Beasley, who broke into the NBA with the Heat in 2008 but has split the past three seasons between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns. "But he'll be fine. I think he's coming around." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Beasley on playing time, considering he might not play at all: "I can't control minutes. I ain't got no minutes in my pocket and I don't got no crazy cell-phone plan." Beasley on the Bahamas: "What else is there to see? It took us like an hour to get here from the airport and all I seen is a gas station." Miami Herald
