This will be his sixth NBA team.
Beasley was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft out of Kansas State. Only Derrick Rose went ahead of him, and he was chosen before the likes of Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, Brook Lopez and others.
Beasley’s NBA tenure has been marred by issues with marijuana. He has played for the Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets and most recently the Milwaukee Bucks.
Beasley has also spent time playing in China.

Barring an unforeseen trade, Michael Beasley’s NYK deal will likely be for the vet. minimum since that’s all they can offer at the moment.
