According to a Wednesday evening report from ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, B-Easy is headed to Houston:
Fresh off being named MVP of the Chinese Basketball Association, Michael Beasley is headed to the Houston Rockets, according to league sources.
Sources told ESPN.com that Beasley and the Rockets have agreed to a contract for the rest of the season at the league minimum, with Houston possessing a team option for next season.
ESPN.com reported last week that Beasley, 27, bypassed a lucrative offer from perennial European power Maccabi Tel Aviv, as well as other overseas interest, because he was determined to return to the NBA.
The Rockets, of course, just waived PG Ty Lawson after that experiment failed miserably. Houston is currently clinging to the 8-seed in the Western Conference. Thoughts on the Beasley addition?
