Beasley to the Heat, Mayo to the Timberwolves

Miami, after all their talking about Mayo and taking him at #2, caved in and went with the consensus #2 player in this draft and take the double-double machine in Michael Beasley. Now Miami needs to go grab themselves a point guard and Miami should be back in the playoffs. Wade, Ricky Davis, Shawn Marion, Michael Beasley and Mark Blount… Interesting starting lineup to say the least.
OJ Mayo will be paired with Al Jefferson for years to come and hopefully can mesh and turn this franchise around. We know Jefferson can play, we just have to see if Mayo can score at the NBA level, but more importantly, can he get his teammates involved as well.
With Mayo going 3rd overall, it looks like the Clippers and Sonics will be swapping picks, meaning the lost LA franchise is on the clock at #4. They are rumored to be taking Eric Gordon.
