A few interesting things from'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.
  • 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.
That's it for now, but obviously, much more to come.

A couple free agency updates

Really would like to see the Beasley deal completed soon. ALso, Celtics getting Jermaine O'Neal is a smart move on their part. He fits the veteran mold but can step in for the injured Kendrick Perkins. Mavericks looking like they're keeping Brendan Haywood as well, a potential Miami target if LeBron goes elsewhere.
