YOUNG FORWARD MICHAEL BEASLEY COULD END UP IN LOS ANGELES LAKERS
Mon, 19 Mar 2012 01:24 PM EDT

Los Angeles Lakers managing director Mitch Kupchak promised he would be pursuing deals ever since the Chris Paul trade dropped thru on the eve of training camp and he eventually could have found his trade on the eve of trade cut off point. Las Vegas odds

The Lakers revisited talks with procure Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley, multiple league resources said. Several variances of the trade have been debated. One could land Beasley on the Lakers in a 3-team deal that could send Portland Trail Blazers guard Jamal Crawford to the Wolves and Luke Ridnour from Minnesota to Portland. L.A would give up one of its two 2012 1st-round draft picks in the agreement and use its $8.9 million trade exception, purchased when it traded Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks in December, to take in Beasley’s be like $6.3 million income. Portland would also receive the Lakers’ 1st-round pick.

Beasley, 23 year-old, is averaging 11.8 points and 4.6 rebounds in 23.5 minutes per game with Minnesota this season. The 6-foot-10, 235-pound power forward has averaged 15.4 points and 5.7 rebounds in his 4-year career. Vegas odds

Beasley was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft by the Miami Heat but slid out of favor with the franchise after a collection of off-court situations.

He was traded to Minnesota in the summer of 2010 for a 2nd-round draft pick so as to clear cap space and help the signings of free agents LeBron James and Chris Bosh.

Beasley, a left-handed player with ability for scoring the ball, has progressed into a efficient 3-point shooter and shot 43.9 % from outside the arc with Minnesota this season. If he finishes up in L.A, he might be anticipated to fill the gap left by Odom as the primary scoring option off the Lakers’ bench. The Lakers’ 2nd unit ranked dead last in scoring this season coming with last Wednesday’s game towards the Hornets, averaging just 20.5 points per game. After messing with the rotation for the 1st half of the season, Brown likes how his starting 5 has performed in the 23 games since Metta World Peace joined the 1st unit so Beasley is not very likely to modify that.

Taking Beasley may satisfy the necessity for talent without breaking the Lakers’ bank. While Beasley’s 2011-12 salary was in the books for roughly $6.3 million, every player’s income was prorated to close to 80 percent this year due to the lockout-shortened 66-game schedule.

The team may additionally prorate Beasley’s income since he’d only be a Laker for the final twenty-three games of the season, which is about 35 percent of the remaining schedule.

If the Lakers finally procure Beasley, they are not mechanically locked into a lengthy engagement. If they choose, this offseason L.A could extend him a qualifying offer of roughly $8.172 million, making Beasley a restricted independent agent and opening the door for him to stay a Laker in the 2012-13 season.

They could nevertheless, merely permit Beasley to enter unrestricted free agency by not extending the qualifying offer, removing his income from their books.
