Michael Beasley Reportedly Could Be Waived by the Phoenix Suns

by August 09, 2013

Following his latest marijuana-related blunder, Michael Beasley’s time with the Phoenix Suns could be done. According to an emotional rant in the Arizona Sports website, the team is seriously considering cutting ties with SuperCool Beas: “The Phoenix Suns have until August 31 to release Michael Beasley, and it won’t take that long. The troubled former number 2 overall pick has worn out his welcome in the Valley of the Sun, and will soon be shown the door. The move will likely come sometime in the next week after the Suns have done their due diligence and checked all the facts regarding his arrest for possession of marijuana in Scottsdale earlier this week. But make no mistake about it, he will never play for the Suns again. […] Unfortunately for the Suns, the rules in the NBA make sure that Beasley will get paid the $9 million he has left on his contract. As I reported earlier, it will most likely be done as part off a waive-and-stretch scenario where he gets his $9 million spread out over five years.”
