    For Michael Beasley and Roger Mason Jr., no news was the best news. "It's the best camaraderie I've ever been a part of in 11 years," Mason Jr. said. If the Heat were so inclined, they could have parted with one or both to open a roster spot, but coach Erik Spoelstra called the decision to keep Mason Jr. presumed to have been the more vulnerable of the two "fairly easy." There were reports that the team could make a move Tuesday to open a spot and potentially pursue newly waived center Andrew Bynum, especially since the Heat still have not incorporated former No. 1 overall draft pick Greg Oden who appeared in one preseason game with Miami into the rotation. "I've said this time and time before: It's not easy to find guys like that, guys that will embrace that role, that are only about winning, only about the team, will do all the things behind the scenes and then you need him.
