Michael Beasley signs with Memphis Grizzlies


NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Miami Heat
Michael Beasley looks to steer himself straight in Memphis.

According to Adrian Wojanrowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to a non-guranteed contract with troubled free agent Michael Beasley. Beasley will join the Grizzlies for training camp which begins on September 30th.

Beasley worked out for Memphis earlier this week, and chose the Grizzlies because he believes he can fill their vacancy at backup power forward. Beasley also worked out for the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers earlier this summer.

Bealsey, 25, appeared in 55 games for the Miami Heat last season, averaging 7.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. Beasley’s boneheaded ways have prevented him from blossoming into the star many thought he would become. Ever since being selected by the Miami Heat with the 2nd overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, Beasley has bounced around the league looking to secure a minimum contract.

Michael Beasley averages 13.2 points, and 4.9 rebounds per game for his career. In 2010-11, Beasley averaged 19.2 points per game as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Beasley has also played for the Phoenix Suns.
