Rumor: Michael Beasley Heading To Lakers
Rumor: Michael Beasley may be heading to the Lakers.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Beasley won’t be enough to get past Oklahoma in 2013.
It’s no secret that the Lakers need to make some moves this off-season. The question is who can they get with limited money at their disposal. Deron Willaims doesn’t appear to be an option unless some type of sign-and-trade deal could be arranged, but another name that is now circulating around LA front offices is Michael Beasley.
Beasley is currently with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Timberwolves would reportedly want backup big man Jordan HIll from the Lakers. Beasley would probably fit well with the LA system and could play both the 3 and th 4 positions. He’s currently getting $6 million a year with Minnesota, while producing 11 points per game and 4 rebounds per game.
Beasley may be an acquisition the Lakers can afford, but it’s doubtful this will be enough to get them another ring or even out of the Western Conference.
