A few interesting things from CBSSports.com's Ken Berger:
- The Heat are actively trying to clear Michael Beasley and his $4.9 million off the books in order to complete its dream team. Right now, Miami is talking a three-way trade that involves Charlotte and Houston. Beasley would go to Charlotte, with the Rockets getting something from the Bobcats.
- Yesterday, I posted on the rumored deal involving David Lee and Anthony Randolph. Berger says that deal is done in principle. It would go through under the condition that LeBron signs somewhere other than New York. Lee would go to Golden State in a sign-and-trade for Anthony Randolph, Kelenna Azubuike and Ronny Turiaf.
- Amare Stoudemire's move to New York was actually done as a sign-and-trade, Berger reports. The deal is five years, $99.9 million. The Knicks save about $800,000 on next year's cap as a result of it and the Suns get a trade exception and conditional future pick.
- The Bobcats are in serious talks to offer either Luis Scola or Tyrus Thomas a contract. Both are restricted free agents and Berger says that Houston owner Leslie Alexander is determined to match any offer on Scola.
