    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley was caught on video punching himself in the head a couple of times after a missed shot during the Heat’s preseason win over the Pistons on Thursday, and he received treatment from team trainers following the game to reduce swelling above his eye. Putting two and two together, it was originally believed that…

  2. Report: Michael Beasley punched self after travel call, needed treatment

    Michael Beasley

    Above you see the video evidence that Michael Beasley did indeed punch himself in the head after getting called for traveling in Thursday night’s preseason game against the Pistons (thanks to Ben at The Point Forward for finding that). We’ll also say it doesn’t look like much — more of a forehead slap “D’oh” than…

  3. Dwyane Wade, Michael Beasley both sit for Heat Monday

    Michael Beasley

    After shootaround on Monday, LeBron James was asked who had stood out so far with their play at camp and without hesitation he said Dwyane Wade. He said Wade was turning back the clock. Which is nice in October but actually needed in May. Wade is going to get some rest along the way to…

  4. Michael Beasley’s latest plan: ‘I’m not going to be looking at not making mistakes or trying not to mess up’

    Michael Beasley

    The Michael Beasley experiment is officially underway in Miami, after the Suns negotiated a buyout of his contract following a disappointing first season in Phoenix that came along with it some off-the-court legal troubles that helped make the franchise’s decision to part ways with the troubled forward a little bit easier. Beasley is being given…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Last season: The Heat won their second straight championship in an epic seven-game battle against a Spurs team that had every chance to take home the title instead. On their way, Miami flirted with history by stringing together a 27-game winning streak that lasted late into March, and finished the season by winning an incredible…

    CHICAGO – The Bulls are expected by many to be among the top teams in the Eastern Conference when factoring in the return of Derrick Rose. But while teams like Brooklyn, New York, and Indiana added talent through trades or free agency, Chicago lost a couple of guys who helped the team make its playoff…

    heat beasley

    After Michael Beasley had problems both on and off the court during a tumultuous first year with the Phoenix Suns, the team decided to further its fresh start under a new GM and new head coach by negotiating a buyout of his contract, which made Beasley an unrestricted free agent. Despite his well-chronicled history of…

    heat beasley

    Michael Beasley is back with the Miami Heat… at least for training camp. The Miami Heat have signed Beasley to a training camp contract, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and confirmed by the team. The deal is for one year at the veteran minimum ($1 million for him) and this is…

  10. Report: Miami Heat considering signing Michael Beasley

    Sep 7, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    heat beasley

    There’s no way to put this mildly: The Michael Beasley free agent signing by the Phoenix Suns last summer was a disastrous one for the franchise. It led to the firing of head coach Alvin Gentry midway through last season, and when things had completely fallen apart by year’s end, it resulted in the firing…

  11. Lakers reportedly have interest in a young forward… Xavier Henry

    Sep 4, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Driving in Los Angeles today I heard the broadcasters on the Lakers flagship station talking themselves into Michael Beasley. They gave it a lot of caveats — if he would take the league minimum (he’s going to have to) and if he plays within the system (he hasn’t anywhere else, don’t think this will be…

  12. Lakers’ Ryan Kelly slow to heal from surgeries, may miss start of season

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

    Michigan State v Duke

    If you’re a big man who can knock down an outside shot you will play in Mike D’Antoni’s system. Which is good news for Lakers draft pick Ryan Kelly out of Duke. Now all he has to do is get on the court. Which may take longer than expected following another surgery on his right…

  13. Might the Lakers have an interest in Michael Beasley?

    Sep 4, 2013, 12:12 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    The short answer to the Michael Beasley question in Los Angeles should be a resounding “no,” for a variety of reasons. But believe it or not, the case can be made, so let’s break down exactly why it’s unlikely that the Lakers would bother to pursue the talented but troubled forward who was waived by…

    We’ve been telling you this was coming. Not long after Michael Beasley’s latest arrest for marijuana possession, our own Brett Pollakoff laid out how the Suns could use the stretch provision to lessen their hit in letting Beasley go. Then as part of the recent Caron Butler trade we told you that cleared out just…

    The allure of pro-am basketball isn’t what it was during the 2011 NBA lockout, but watching the best players in the world play basketball — wherever they’re at and regardless of their opponents — is still fun to watch on a lazy August day. And, because of that, we’re bringing you highlights of the 2013…

  16. It’s official: Caron Butler traded to Milwaukee Bucks

    Aug 29, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks get a Racine native who can help them out immediately at the three, where Carlos Delfino could be a little slow to come around following off-season foot surgery. The Phoenix Suns saved more than $5 million and brought in a couple interesting young pieces. The trade we first told you about last…

    Caron Butler

    We brought you news of this potential trade last night and now you wake up to the news that the deal is all but official. The Suns have agreed to trade Caron Butler to the Milwaukee Bucks for guard Ish Smith and center Slava Kravtsov, reports Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. The deal will…

  18. Caron Butler says he’s willing to mentor Michael Beasley

    Aug 22, 2013, 10:02 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    It’s highly unlikely that Michael Beasley will still be a member of the Phoenix Suns by the time training camps open at the end of September. But if he is still on the roster, the team’s newest veteran would be happy to take a crack at steering him in the right direction. Caron Butler came…

  19. Matt Barnes says Shabazz Muhammad getting sent home from NBA’s Rookie Transition Program is ‘BS’

    Aug 7, 2013, 11:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Timberwolves rookie Shabazz Muhammad was sent home early from the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program for a blatant violation of the event’s rules. The infraction itself wasn’t at all that serious; Muhammad apparently had a female guest in his room hours after being informed that it wasn’t allowed. But rules are rules, and as a rookie…

    NBA: Summer League-Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns

    Shabazz Muhammad has already endured his fair share of controversy for a rookie that has yet to play in an NBA game. The controversy doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon, however, as the Minnesota Timberwolves’ first-round pick got into some trouble at the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program this weekend. Muhammad was sent home Tuesday…

  21. Suns could use the stretch provision to painlessly rid themselves of Michael Beasley

    Aug 6, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Michael Beasley was already entering the 2013-14 season with the Suns on thin ice, and that was before his latest run-in with local authorities that was his third such incident in the past eight months. Beasley was at the core of some of the problems in Phoenix early last season, and it became evident by…

  22. Michael Beasley arrested on possession of marijuana charges

    Aug 6, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley once told David Kahn that his days of smoking marijuana were in the past. They were apparently in the future too, though, because the Phoenix Suns forward was arrested early Tuesday morning after a Scottsdale police officer smelled marijuana after stopping the former No. 2 pick for a traffic violation. Beasley has had…

    Phoenix Suns’ forward Michael Beasley is under investigation by Scottsdale police for a potential sexual assault back on Jan. 13, according to ABC News 15 in Phoenix. “At this point we can only say the investigation is ongoing,” said David Pubins, Scottsdale police spokesman. “We are interviewing those involved and processing any physical evidence we…

  24. Suns part ways with GM Lance Blanks

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    lance-blanks-suns

    The Suns have parted ways with GM Lance Blanks, the team announced on Monday via official release. The move doesn’t come as a huge surprise, considering that president of basketball operations Lon Babby was just given a two-year contract extension, and some organizational changes were obviously necessary in the wake of the dismal 25-57 season…

  25. Marcin Gortat says lack of character in younger players a big problem for the Suns

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    PHOENIX — Marcin Gortat was among the veteran Suns players who weren’t at all happy with the way this season went in Phoenix. Along with Goran Dragic and Jared Dudley, Gortat is a holdover from better times the team experienced while playing with the likes of Steve Nash and Grant Hill, two of the game’s…
