Beasley has been dogged by marijuana issues throughout his NBA career. He has been involved in several incidents since he was a rookie, and checked into a rehab clinic in 2009, though it wasn't mentioned specifically if his stay was related to marijuana.
Beasley is entering the second year of a three year, $18 million deal with Phoenix he signed prior to the 2012-13 season. He averaged 10.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game in 75 games this past season, both below his career average.
