Michael Beasley has taken his talents to China. Alexey Shved is in town facing his old team.

Drafted 2nd overall in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat, Beasley (dubbed also "B-Easy," and, "Super Cool Beas") played two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves beginning in...

Michael Beasley not making the flight for Grizzlies first two preseason games due to illness

A case of the beasles? Some bug making him feel queasley? Don't worry, I'm done. I was listening to The Eric Hasseltine Show this afternoon, and Eric relayed an update on Grizzlies fans' latest béguin, Michael Beasley. The Beas did not make the flight to Milwaukee with the team because of an illness that was making him feel pretty ishy. Due to the Grizzlies confinement on an airplane for several hours over the next two days, the team chose to have Beasley sit these out. Personally, as a fan of the hope that MB brings to the back end of the Grizzlies roster, I really hope this doesn't do...

Memphis Grizzlies lace up for Training Camp in San Diego, but Beasley does it standing up

Lacing em’ up for Day 1 of #GrizzTrainingCamp @UCSanDiego And it begins #GrizzNation #GnG pic.twitter.com/QwWaFs0IJY — Memphis Grizzlies (@memgrizz) September 30, 2014 The Grizzlies prepare for a training/practice session out in San Diego by lacing up what appears to be athletic shoes made in the early 1980's. I'm sure they're top of the line Nikes, it's just weird to see all white sneakers on our G-Bears. Also, from my experience in life, I've normally seen people put on and lace up shoes while sitting down, like you see most everyone doing in this photo. Michael Beasley, however,...

First look at Michael Beasley in a Memphis Grizzlies uniform

The Beas sporting the Grit'n'Grind at Grizzlies Media Day. Cheers to the grand experiment here. If the vibe to Beasley's appearance today holds true then the Grizzlies would easily be one of the deepest teams in the league. Heck, they're probably already in that discussion.

Memphis Grizzlies Film Lab: The Michael Beasley Experiment

The Memphis Grizzlies love a reclamation project, so it's not really a surprise that they signed Michael Beasley to a non-guaranteed deal. But is this one too many reclamation projects? Michael Beasley is not the player he was supposed to be coming out of college. That cat was out of the bag a long time ago. He's struggled in numerous ways since entering the league, and he certainly hasn't lived up to the hype that comes with being a number two pick in any given NBA draft. Now that the league's expectations for Beasley have been significantly lowered, it's time for him to adjust his game...

ASK IRA: Was cutting ties with Beasley premature by the Heat?

Q: Given the Heat's need for youth, athleticism and players who can create their own shot, I am shocked we gave up on Michael Beasley. Plus he was a fan favorite, a minimum salary and Pat Riley has a motivation for loyalty and "making things work." Will we ever know specifically why the Heat lost complete faith in Michael? -- Stone, New York.

Michael Beasley sexual assault investigation resolved by police

Michael Beasley recently signed to the Memphis Grizzlies' training camp roster as he continues looking for an NBA home following a tumultuous career. We've been able to at least confirm resolution on one troubling aspect of his past. A sexual assault case from January 2013 involving newly-signed Grizzlies forward Michael Beasley has been labeled "inactive" by the Scottsdale Police Department, Sergeant Mark Clark told SB Nation's Seth Pollack on Wednesday. "We did not submit charges," Clark said. "We did not establish probable cause that sexual assault happened." Clark said the police came...

Griz sign Michael Beasley, begin The Michael Beasley Project

Last night, news broke that the Grizzlies had reached an agreement with Michael Beasley. I'd seen somebody (I think it was Chris Vernon) tweeting that Beasley was working out with the Grizzlies, but I'd already assigned Beasley to the "Spurs" bucket in my head after reading pieces like this and this when the "Beasley to the Spurs" chatter really started going.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]
