Pistons reportedly sign Michael Beasley to one-year non-guaranteed deal




 

We thought that Michael Beasley might be headed to China. The former No. 2 overall pick was suspended for five games by the NBA this summer for violating the league's anti-drug policy back in the fall.

Beasley was still without an NBA team when that suspension came down, but now one squad is willing to take a chance on the mercurial forward.

According to multiple reports, the Detroit Pistons have signed Beasley to a one-year deal. It will be a non-guaranteed contract for the veteran's minimum.

Via Twitter and the Detroit Free Press:


What can Beasley bring to the table for the Pistons? That's hard to say, especially as he hasn't been particularly impactful over the past couple of years. Beasley hasn't had a positive net rating since 2015-16.

But as is the case with most guys at the end of the bench, what they can really do doesn't have a huge effect on the rest of the team. Beasley will need to keep his head down and perform efficiently if he wants to stay in the NBA this year. That's a great place to start.
