Heat forward Michael Beasley adding versatility to his game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Heat forward Michael Beasley has always had the ability to score. It was his willingness to defend that coaches questioned. However, coach Erik Spoelstra said he has been pleased with how Beasley is competing on both ends of the court, reports the Sun Sentinel.

"He's shown great strides just in terms of his competitiveness, his technique, his consistency to step out of his comfort zone and be the anchor for us," Spoelstra said.

With center Hassan Whiteside sidelined during Saturday's win against the Kings, Beasley stepped in and played admirably while defending Kings center DeMarcus Cousins.

"I played a little five in college," Beasley said. "That's the last time I played it. It worked for us."

With forward Chris Bosh out the season, Spoelstra said the team has needed to rely on Beasley more, which Spoelstra was comfortable with.

"We've been running the majority of our offense through him a la Chris Bosh," Spoelstra said. "He's a close facsimile in our system."

"He's more versatile now on both ends," Spoelstra said. "You're seeing another step in that direction. He just has to continue to work."

Former NBA player Beasley sued for sexual assault allegations


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) Former NBA player Michael Beasley is being sued for sexually assaulting a woman in 2013, reports The Arizona Republic.

A lawsuit was filed in federal court Monday, which stated that Beasley stripped the woman of her clothing, then choked her until she was unconscious and began sexually assaulting her. The alleged victim is seeking $25 million in a civil suit against Beasley.

The incident occurred in early 2013 at his Arizona home, while Beasley was a member of the Suns. No criminal charges were ever filed in the case, but local police were aware of the alleged incident. 

Beasley was selected second overall in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat. Beasley signed a contract to play for the Grizzlies this season, but left camp to play in China. During his career, Beasley averaged 13.2 points and 4.9 rebounds.


Report: PF Michael Beasley leaves Grizzlies to play in China


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Power forward Michael Beasley has left Grizzlies camp and signed a deal to play in China, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The second overall pick in the 2008 draft by Miami might not have landed a spot on the Memphis roster. His production has decreased every year since 2009-10 to the point in which he averaged just 7.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game last season with the Heat.


Grizzlies offer Michael Beasley a chance to make the team


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) After not being pursued by Miami and working out for several Western Conference teams, Michael Beasley has landed a non-guaranteed contract with the Memphis Grizzlies.

According to Yahoo Sports, Beasley will compete during training camp for a roster spot, likely as a backup power forward.

It's been a very tumultuous career in the NBA for Beasley, who was drafted No. 2 overall in 2008 only to be passed from team to team due to off the court issues and an overall lack of maturity. Offensively, he was effective in the small role Miami gave him, averaging 7.9 points on 49.9 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from three in just 15.1 minutes per game. But his inability to grasp defensive concepts and show discipline on that end of the floor led to an inconsistent role over the course of a season. 


Michael Beasley looks decent in rare start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014)  Heat forward Michael Beasley was in the starting lineup in place of LeBron James (back) Wednesday against the Celtics, after being held out of the two previous games.

Beasley played 28 minutes in the start and scored 12 points, while shooting 5 of 11 from the field. He added four rebounds and four assists, though he also turned the ball over four times in the 101-96 loss.

Beasley has been an inconsistent contributor for the Heat, going through stretches where he barely plays. He is averaging a career-low 8.3 points per game despite shooting a career-best 49.7 percent from the field.


Michael Beasley earning more playing time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Heat forward Michael Beasley is seeing a bump in playing time recently, as he appeared in his fifth straight game Tuesday against the Rockets.

Beasley actually played a big part in keeping the Heat competitive Tuesday, and his 28 minutes played represents his highest total since late December. He scored 24 points on 9 of 13 shooting, while making four 3-pointers and adding four rebounds and two assists in a 106-103 loss.

Beasley is in the paradoxical position of outperforming expectations while putting up the worst per-game numbers of his career. He has appeared in 41 of 58 games, averaging 8.6 points per game on 51.4 percent shooting from the field. 


Michael Beasley produces when called on


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) Heat forward Michael Beasley entered Wednesday's game against the Warriors having sat out the team's previous four games, but he stayed ready for an increased role in a 111-110 win.

Beasley played 24 minutes in the game, after playing just four minutes in the first five games of February overall. He scored 16 points on 7 of 11 shooting and added two rebounds and two steals, while turning the ball over once.

Beasley has been in and out of the rotation for long stretches this season, but has remained productive when called on. He is averaging 8.7 points in just 15.4 minutes per game in his 35 appearances. 


Michael Beasley's role remains inconsistent


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) Heat forward Michael Beasley has been out of the rotation recently, but saw solid minutes Thursday, in a 109-102 win over the Lakers.

Beasley played 20 minutes in the win, his highest total in over two weeks. He scored seven points on 3 of 6 shooting in those 20 minutes, and added seven rebounds and a season-high four assists, though that come with him turning the ball over three times.

Beasley has played a bigger role than expected for the Heat this season, though his playing time has been inconsistent overall. He is averaging just 12.2 minutes per game in the month of January, after averaging 23.7 in December. He is averaging a career-low 9.0 points per game.
