Michael Beasley struggled with the Lakers last season. The last straw was seemingly an argument with then-Lakers coach Luke Walton. Beasley got traded to the Clippers (inexplicably with Ivica Zubac) and waived and signed in China. He remains unsigned. That might have been it for the 30-year-old in the NBA.

If that weren’t enough…

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

This appears consistent with a third marijuana violation. Beasley was also arrested for marijuana possession in 2011 and 2013.

Suspended from a job you don’t even have. Man.
