Beasley headed back to the Heat

The Miami Heat re-signed Michael Beasley, who spent the first two seasons of his up-and-down NBA career with the team and became a free agent when the Phoenix Suns bought out his contract earlier this month.

Beasley was drafted second overall in 2008 by the Heat and averaged 14.3 points a game over those two seasons. He was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2010 and signed with Phoenix as a free agent in 2012.

Heat president Pat Riley said the team decided that Beasley “can help us.”

Beasley was arrested earlier this off-season in Arizona on charges of felony marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. It was the latest in a series of incidents involving the drug that have plagued his NBA career.

• The New York Knicks have signed guards Chris Smith and Toure’ Murry.

Smith is the younger brother of Knicks guard J.R. Smith, the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year.

Chris Smith, who helped Louisville reach the 2012 Final Four, was on the Knicks’ roster in the preseason last year before getting hurt and waived before the regular season.

Murry helped lead Rio Grande to the NBA Development League championship last season.
