Beasley will play for the Trail Blazers' entry at the Las Vegas Summer League, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The 11-year NBA veteran hasn't suited up for an NBA game since the 2018-19 season, but he's still searching for a path back to the league. The 32-year-old has never been able to find a permanent NBA home, having spent time with Miami, Minnesota, Phoenix, Houston, Milwaukee, New York and, most recently, the Lakers. He'll likely face an uphill battle toward securing a guaranteed contract, but playing well in Vegas would increase his chances.
Beasley will not join the Nets for the resumption of the season and his roster spot will be replaced, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Beasley tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday. Considering Beasley would have to go through both a quarantine period and serve a five-game suspension, it's not clear how many games he would end up actually playing for Brooklyn. As a result, the team is opting to replace his roster spot with someone who will likely be available for the entire resumption of the season.
Beasley recently tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently with the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Beasley signed with the Nets last week as a replacement player, but his status for the restart of the 2019-20 season is now very much up in the air. The 2008 No. 2 overall pick returned home after testing positive, so if he does rejoin the Nets, he'll likely have to quarantine for a period of time after returning to Orlando. Beasley was already set to serve an outstanding five-game suspension stemming from a past violation of the league's anti-drug policy, so he's not eligible to play until Aug. 9.
Beasley (suspension) officially signed a contract with the Nets on Thursday, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports. With the Nets down seven players for the remainder of the season, the organization opted to bring in veterans Beasley and Jamal Crawford. Beasley hasn't seen any NBA run this season, but he made 26 appearances with the Lakers during the 2018-19 campaign, averaging 7.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 10.9 minutes. It certainly seems possible that he'll garner a bigger role with Brooklyn given the team context. The 31-year-old still has an outstanding five-game suspension from August 2019 for violating the league's anti-drug policy that presumably needs to be served before he's cleared for game action.
