Michael Beasley: Could return to China
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley is drawing interest from Shanxi of the Chinese Basketball Association, Sportando reports.

Beasley was let go by the Pistons last week after they brought in Joe Johnson, and it looks as though he could head back to China, where he's already played for three other CBA teams in the past. Most recently, Beasley suited up for Guangdong last season after beginning the year with the Lakers.

Pistons' Michael Beasley: Let go by Pistons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley (suspension) was waived by the Pistons on Thursday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

Beasley signed a one-year deal with the Pistons in August. However, the franchise decided to go in a different direction with its veteran depth, replacing Beasley with Joe Johnson, who was out of the NBA last year while participating in the Big 3 league. If Beasley finds NBA work this season, he'll have to sit out the first five games he's available for due to a violation of the league's anti-drug policy.

Pistons' Michael Beasley: Inks deal with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley signed a one-year deal with the Pistons on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Beasley will have to sit the first five games of the season after being handed a five-game suspension for violating the league's anti-drug policy, but he then figures to join the frontcourt mix in Detroit. The 30-year-old spent last season with the Lakers, averaging 7.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 10.7 minutes across 26 games.

Michael Beasley: Issued five-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley was handed a five-game suspension by the NBA for violating the league's anti-drug policy, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

A free agent, Beasley will have a delayed debut if he signs with a team. He appeared in 26 games for the Lakers last season, averaging 7.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 10.7 minutes.

Michael Beasley: Headed back to China
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley is expected to finalize a contract Tuesday with the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

It will mark Beasley's third stint in the CBA after he previously suited up for the Shanghai Sharks in the 2014-15 season and the Shangdong Golden Stars in 2015-16. Beasley averaged north of 28 points in both trials in the CBA and would likely become one of the top players on the circuit upon returning to China, so it's unsurprising that his contract is believed to include "significant cash," per Wojnarowski. Beasley's commitment to Guangdong is only expected to run through the end of the CBA campaign -- likely at some point in March or April, depending on the duration of the team's playoff run -- so it's possible he could still resurface at the NBA level before the regular season concludes in April.

Clippers' Michael Beasley: Officially waived
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley was officially waived by the Clippers on Saturday, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Beasley was traded by the Lakers to the Clippers along with Ivica Zubac in exchange for Mike Muscala on Thursday. The Clippers were expected to waive Beasley following the trade, as Zubac was the primary reason for the move. The journeyman power forward will now look for a new opportunity with a team looking for quick offense off the bench.

Clippers' Michael Beasley: Dealt to Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley, along with Ivica Zubac, was traded to the Clippers on Thursday in exchange for Mike Muscala, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

In a two-for-one deal, the Lakers opened up a roster spot for the buyout market while the Clippers acquired a young asset in Ivica Zubac. It's not exactly clear how Beasley will fit into the equation basketball-wise, and it seems possible he'll be bought out.

Lakers' Michael Beasley: Solid complementary contributions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley pitched in eight points (4-12 FG), six assists, four rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 26 minutes in the Lakers' 116-102 win over the Suns on Sunday.

Beasley entered the starting five with Kyle Kuzma (hip) out of action and provided a serviceable, well-rounded line overall despite some shooting struggles. The veteran has been a solid contributor when given the opportunity this season, as most recently evidenced by his four-game stretch of double-digit scoring efforts earlier in January. Beasley's minutes are unpredictable when he comes off the bench, however, rendering him more of a waiver-wire option in deep formats for the time being.

Lakers' Michael Beasley: Draws spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley is starting Sunday against the Suns, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Beasley will join the starting five with Kyle Kuzma (hip) on the shelf for Sunday's matchup. Beasley is slated to make his first start of the season and is averaging 10.5 points along with 2.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists over his previous 11 contests.

Lakers' Michael Beasley: Thrives off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley put up 15 points (7-8 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 18 minutes Monday in the Lakers' 130-111 loss to the Warriors.

The Warriors had built a 30-point lead after three quarters, affording Beasley and the Lakers' other reserves some more run than usual. Beasley has shown the ability to routinely reach double figures in the scoring column when he receives minutes in the high teens, but his opportunities could soon become more scarce with LeBron James (groin) in the day-to-day stage of his recovery at this point.

Lakers' Michael Beasley: Scores team-high 17 points Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley totaled 17 points (6-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds two steals, one block, and one assist in 18 minutes during Friday's 113-95 loss to Utah.

Beasley continues to play well in the absence of LeBron James (groin), dropping a team-high 17 points Friday. He has now scored in double-digits in four straight games, also racking up five blocks in that period. His playing time remains capped at about 20 minutes but he certainly has that ability to put up points even in limited time.

Lakers' Michael Beasley: Second-leading scorer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley offered 19 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four assists, two rebounds and two blocks across 19 minutes in the Lakers' 113-100 win over the Pistons on Wednesday.

Beasley saw added run with Kyle Kuzma sitting out the entire fourth quarter with a sore lower back after racking up 41 points in 29 minutes. Luckily for the Lakers, Beasley was highly productive on a per-minute basis in his own right, checking in as the second-highest scorer on the night for Los Angeles. The 29-year-old has now logged over 20 minutes in two of his first four games since returning from an extended absence, and he's parlayed that expanded opportunity into three straight double-digit scoring efforts. If Beasley begins to enjoy a consistent role in the rotation, his ability to handle both forward spots should afford him an ample platform for strong fantasy production relative to playing time.

Lakers' Michael Beasley: Sees heavy minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley tallied 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 21 minutes Sunday in the Lakers' 108-86 loss to the Timberwolves.

Making his second appearance following a 13-game absence to tend to a personal matter, Beasley filled a high-usage role for the second unit in the blowout loss. While he put up numbers across the board and shot well from the field, he turned the ball over five times to put a damper on his production. With LeBron James (groin) unlikely to return this week, Beasley should have a spot in the rotation for the next several games, though his playing time might take a hit if Kyle Kuzma (back) is able to play Monday in Dallas.

Lakers' Michael Beasley: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley (personal) returned to the Lakers on Friday and is available to play against the Knicks, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

Beasley, who hasn't played since Dec. 7, has been absent from the Lakers due to the death of his mother but returned to the Lakers on Friday and participated in morning shootaround. The Kansas State product will finally play against the Knicks on Friday if his number is called upon.

Lakers' Michael Beasley: Unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley (personal) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

Beasley has been away from the team for nearly a month to be with his family after his mother passed away Dec. 23. It's unclear when the forward might rejoin the Lakers, nor is it known how much practice time he might need to get up to speed once he's back with the team. Regardless, Beasley won't be a major part of the Los Angeles rotation once he's ready to play again.
