Heat Refute Beasley Story

This didn't take long, and I didn't think it would:

Ira Winderman of the Miami Sun-Sentinel has a story up today refuting the Commercial Appeal's account that the Grizzlies turned down offers from the Miami Heat for Michael Beasley and Mario Chalmers:

The Heat on Saturday said it was the Grizzlies that contacted it and tried to trade the No. 2 pick for Michael Beasley, not the other way around. A Heat spokesman confirmed that it was the Grizzlies who made the overtures.

In addition, that same report in the Commercial Appeal said that the Heat offered starting point guard Mario Chalmers for the No. 27 pick. Again, a Heat spokesman quickly corrected that it was Memphis that attempted to peddle No. 27 pick for Chalmers.

This version, of course, makes a lot more sense.
