Hot or Cold: Was signing Beasley the right move?

Welcome to “Hot or Cold”, our new ongoing feature at Hot Hot Hoops where we debate the top issues surrounding your Miami Heat. HHH writers Earnest Christian and David Ramil will tackle a subject from both sides - read on and let us know whose side you’re on! Thursday's announcement that the Miami Heat would be signing Michael Beasley to a 10-day contract was met with varying responses. The team is struggling to keep pace in the Eastern Conference and, despite the recent acquisition of Goran Dragic, injuries to Chris Bosh have hurt Miami's short-term impact this season. Beasley has...

Suns GM explains why they traded the Lakers' draft pick

The Suns GM explained why he felt trading out of the Lakers pick was the best move for the Suns' value. The Phoenix Suns swung for the fences at the trade deadline, trading both Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas while also giving up the rights to the Los Angeles Lakers' top-five protected 2015 draft pick. Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough held a press conference following their moves, and Bryan Gibberman of Bright Side of the Sun had the chance to ask him a handful of questions. The Lakers' front office knows the importance of retaining the top-five pick, as Mitch Kupchak recently...

Dragic, Whiteside spark Heat over 76ers 119-108

This very well could be the Miami Heat's new reality: You start with double-doubles from Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside and work from there.

Goran Dragic settles in with Heat to top 76ers

An optional practice session on Sunday and a Monday morning shootaround helped get newly acquired point guard Goran Dragic up to speed. It paid off as the Miami Heat looked much improved in their 119-108 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.

Miami Heat 119, Sixers 108: Too Much Dragic

With Michael Carter-Williams gone, a new era of tiny point guards has begun in Philadelphia. Isaiah Canaan, Ish Smith and Tim Frazier bring both positives and negatives to the Sixers' lineup. It's truly a shame the new-look Miami Heat are without Chris Bosh the remainder of the season. With Goran Dragic in the mix, Miami's pace-and-space offense under Erik Spoelstra is far more electric than with Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers dominating the ball. Dragic scored 23 points on 14 shots and dished out 10 assists as well. The Heat's offense was legitimately fun to watch, even as Henry Walker...

Preview: Brandon Knight, Phoenix Suns host Isaiah Thomas, Boston Celtics

Tonight, the Phoenix Suns introduce their new acquisitions at their first home game since the blockbuster trade deadline that saw the team ship out five players within the last 10 minutes of the trading season. "We knew Goran was leaving," point guard Isaiah Thomas said of those crazy last 15 minutes. "The deal was getting finalized. He gathered everybody up, said his goodbyes. Then 1 o'clock hit and no one else was leaving. Then Brandan Wright said 'You just got traded.' I said, you're lying." All were on the bus ready to read to Minnesota for a road game when one by one Goran Dragic,...

Why Goran Dragic's impact will be immediately felt by the Heat

Goran Dragic is in the perfect situation to succeed with the Miami Heat. We take a look at why his impact will be felt the minute he takes to the hardwood. The last few days have been an emotional roller-coaster for Heat faithful. From the feeling of elation spawned by the acquisition of Goran Dragic to Saturday's horrifying news concerning the hospitalization of superstar Chris Bosh many consider this season cursed, and I'd have to agree. Injuries have hit the Heat like a devastating combination from a prime Mike Tyson, and as a result there's not too much to celebrate. However with all...

W2W4: C's vs. Suns (Game 54 of 82)

The Boston Celtics (20-33, 8-18 away) visit the Phoenix Suns (29-27, 16-11 home) on Monday night at US Airways Center (9 p.m., CSN). Here's what to watch for: GAME PREVIEW (via STATS LLC) Just days after getting traded away, Isaiah Thomas is headed back to Phoenix. Thomas could be looking to make a statement as his Boston Celtics visit the slumping Suns, who try to avoid an eighth loss in nine games Monday night. Phoenix (29-27) surprised some when it acquired Thomas in a sign-and-trade with Sacramento back in July with fellow point guards Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic already on board.

Goran Dragic wants to offer more. Erik Spoelstra wants to make sure that happens.

Phoenix Suns salary cap update shows they hit the reboot button

The Phoenix Suns rightly decided it was time to reboot a team that had lost 5 of 6 games and had one of their best players demand a trade. And reboot they did. Five players out - Goran Dragic, Zoran Dragic, Isaiah Thomas, Miles Plumlee and Tyler Ennis. Three players in - Brandon Knight, Marcus Thornton, Danny Granger (maybe) One draft pick out - Lakers (top 5 protected this year, top 3 protected in 2016) Three draft picks in - Cleveland's 2016, Heat's 2017 (top 7 protected), Heat's 2021 Basically, the Suns kicked the rebuild can down the road a few paces. They traded one...
