« NBA Draft Night: Heat select Michael Beasley | Main | Heat trade Darnell Jackson and more on Beasley & Chalmers »

What do you think of the Heat's draft picks?

The Heat added a trio that played for Kansas schools: Kansas State's Michael Beasley and Kansas' Mario Chalmers and Darnell Jackson. The Heat has a plethora of forwards since both Beasley and Jackson play the position. Chalmers is a point guard. He hit the game-tying three-pointer that sent the national championship game against Memphis into overtime.

Are you pleased with the Heat's additions? Of course much work remains but this should give them some more talent.

Minnesota now has three future Heat draft picks, including Miami's 2009 first-round selection and two future second rounders.

Scenes from the draft:

Beasley seemed happy but mostly relieved that he ended up in Miami.

His mother described her reaction as "a flood of tears, happy tears."

Beasley said he planned to find time to celebrate with top pick Derrick Rose, third pick O.J. Mayo, fourth pick Russell Westbrook and fifth pick Kevin Love in New York.

We'll have more tomorrow. The Heat is set to introduce Beasley Friday afternoon press conference and perhaps Jackson and Chalmers too.
