Grizzlies offer Michael Beasley a chance to make the team
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

After not being pursued by Miami and working out for several Western Conference teams, Michael Beasley has landed a non-guaranteed contract with the Memphis Grizzlies.

According to Yahoo Sports, Beasley will compete during training camp for a roster spot, likely as a backup power forward.

It's been a very tumultuous career in the NBA for Beasley, who was drafted No. 2 overall in 2008 only to be passed from team to team due to off the court issues and an overall lack of maturity. Offensively, he was effective in the small role Miami gave him, averaging 7.9 points on 49.9 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from three in just 15.1 minutes per game. But his inability to grasp defensive concepts and show discipline on that end of the floor led to an inconsistent role over the course of a season.

Michael Beasley looks decent in rare start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

 Heat forward Michael Beasley was in the starting lineup in place of LeBron James (back) Wednesday against the Celtics, after being held out of the two previous games.

Beasley played 28 minutes in the start and scored 12 points, while shooting 5 of 11 from the field. He added four rebounds and four assists, though he also turned the ball over four times in the 101-96 loss.

Beasley has been an inconsistent contributor for the Heat, going through stretches where he barely plays. He is averaging a career-low 8.3 points per game despite shooting a career-best 49.7 percent from the field.

Michael Beasley earning more playing time
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Heat forward Michael Beasley is seeing a bump in playing time recently, as he appeared in his fifth straight game Tuesday against the Rockets.

Beasley actually played a big part in keeping the Heat competitive Tuesday, and his 28 minutes played represents his highest total since late December. He scored 24 points on 9 of 13 shooting, while making four 3-pointers and adding four rebounds and two assists in a 106-103 loss.

Beasley is in the paradoxical position of outperforming expectations while putting up the worst per-game numbers of his career. He has appeared in 41 of 58 games, averaging 8.6 points per game on 51.4 percent shooting from the field.

Michael Beasley produces when called on
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Heat forward Michael Beasley entered Wednesday's game against the Warriors having sat out the team's previous four games, but he stayed ready for an increased role in a 111-110 win.

Beasley played 24 minutes in the game, after playing just four minutes in the first five games of February overall. He scored 16 points on 7 of 11 shooting and added two rebounds and two steals, while turning the ball over once.

Beasley has been in and out of the rotation for long stretches this season, but has remained productive when called on. He is averaging 8.7 points in just 15.4 minutes per game in his 35 appearances.

Michael Beasley's role remains inconsistent
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Heat forward Michael Beasley has been out of the rotation recently, but saw solid minutes Thursday, in a 109-102 win over the Lakers.

Beasley played 20 minutes in the win, his highest total in over two weeks. He scored seven points on 3 of 6 shooting in those 20 minutes, and added seven rebounds and a season-high four assists, though that come with him turning the ball over three times.

Beasley has played a bigger role than expected for the Heat this season, though his playing time has been inconsistent overall. He is averaging just 12.2 minutes per game in the month of January, after averaging 23.7 in December. He is averaging a career-low 9.0 points per game.
