Beasley said he is confident of extending his third stay with the team . . . to a degree. "My name's on the locker, so I guess that's good," he said. "But we know how cheap that is to make." He said just making it back after playing this season in China has inspired confidence. "I'm just taking it day by day and enjoying it more than anything," he said. 'But like I said before, I know how fast it can be taken." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Goran Dragic: I'm going to stay in the hotel until the end of the season, and then we're going to see how the team is going to develop. I just want to be focused on trying to help the team as much as possible get to the playoffs. But at the end of the season, of course I'm going to think about that option of staying. I'm really hoping to stay in Miami because I really like it, but you never know. I'm a free agent, so I'm going to explore my options. Bleacher Report

Goran Dragic: My No. 1 wish was to go to Miami, who I found out later had tried to get me a couple of years ago when I was in Houston. Miami offered everything—a great market, great players, their championship mentality. They always want to do well, and I think that it was a good fit for me. I was pushing for this situation, but I still didn't know if the Suns were going to send me there. I was in a tough spot, but things worked out in the end. Bleacher Report

Goran Dragic: When I now look back on what I said about the Suns before the trade—"I don't trust them anymore...I don't feel comfortable with my situation"—I feel bad because it came out a little too harsh. I didn't mean it like that, but it happened in that moment, so I cannot go back and change it. I just said what I was thinking. I'm an honest guy, and I had never said something bad about that organization. They were always great to me—they were like family—so I didn't mean that. But at the same time, I thought that the situation was not good any more for me, so that's why it came out like that. Bleacher Report

Walker went from planning life overseas to knocking down clutch passes from Dwyane Wade. “It’s possible,” a source said, “that Walker will stick with Miami for the remainder of the season.” Miami doesn’t have the luxury of bringing in players without NBA experience and without knowledge of the Heat’s system. This resulted in Miami signing Michael Beasley – a former Heat draftee – who returned from China. Basketball Insiders
