Would you take Beasley???

ESPN reported that the Miami Heat have cooled on Kansas State forward Michael Beasley and are looking to either trade the pick or choose O.J. Mayo instead. Would you pass up the best scorer in this year's draft just because Shawn Marion decided not to opt out of the last year of his contract?

Looks like that's not the case; however, I was thinking that after they picked Beasley, they could have traded him for a couple of players to fill in one or two of the positions they are undermanned right now: point guard and center. They're now a bit congested at the forward position with Beasley, Marion, and Udonis Haslem looking to start for the team this season, while they're very thin at the 1 and 5 positions. Look for them to pursue free agents this offseason to fill in those blanks.
