The Minnesota Timberwolves were able to acquire the former second overall pick for essentially nothing not long ago, and now after two years of that failed experiment, Beasley is looking for a fresh start. The paychecks likely won't be as nice as they once were, but Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick reports Beasley still has suitors.
A source said Phoenix and Detroit are among those pursuing small forward Michael Beasley. Minnesota declined to extend the former No. 2 pick a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent.
It's not especially odd that the Detroit Pistons and Phoenix Suns would be interested in acquiring Beasley's services, but I'm curious to see what sort of contract he's given during free agency. There's no doubt he has talent, but he's yet to show the ability to realize how to maximize his skills.
