After being drafted by the Miami Heat and playing with the Minnesota Timberwolves, it seems the Phoenix Suns were also not a long term destination for Michael Beasley.
The former #2 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft was waived by the Phoenix Suns earlier today.
Here's an official statement from the Suns:
“The Suns were devoted to Michael Beasley’s success in Phoenix,” said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. “However, it is essential that we demand the highest standards of personal and professional conduct as we develop a championship culture. Today’s action reflects our commitment to those standards. The timing and nature of this, and all of our transactions, are based on the judgment of our Basketball leadership as to how best to achieve our singular goal of rebuilding an elite team.”
The next question is where will Beasley end up? Only time will tell.
