Portland Trail Blazers Interested In Bringing Michael Beasley In For Training Camp

In effort to become more competitive this upcoming season with Damian Lillard’s future being uncertain, the Portland Trail Blazers have been pretty active throughout the offseason. They’ve already signed Dennis Smith Jr. and Marquese Chriss to training camp deals to see if they’ve got what it takes to elevate the team’s ceiling. 

Furthermore, HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto recently reported that Portland has interest in bringing in more forwards, with guys like Michael Beasley and Patrick Patterson being among the top of their list. 

Patterson was signed on Thursday, as first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, but Beasley could still be another intriguing option to bring into camp. With nothing to lose, the Blazers could sign him to a non-guaranteed deal and give him a shot. 

Beasley is the former No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. He last played in the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2018-19 season. The forward played in 26 games while averaging 7.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per contest. 

It would make sense for Beasley to join the Blazers in training camp, especially considering he just played for them in NBA Summer League last month.
