Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves will have a decision to make at the end of this season. That is, whether to offer Michael Beasley and extension, pick up his $8.2million option or let him go via free agency.
If it was up to Beasley, he'd like to remain in Minnesota. "I would love to come back and be a Timberwolf," said Beasley before Minnesota's 95-82 loss to the Clippers on Thursday.
"I love it here. I can genuinely say that from the bottom of my heart...From my teammates, to the city, the coaches, the staff. Everybody is so welcoming here. I'm just going to let the situation play out."
Beasley began the season as the team's starter. He played the first seven games as Minnesota's starting small forward, but a mid-foot sprain on January 6th shut him down for the next 11 games. Over those seven games, Beasley averaged 12.9ppg.
Upon returning to the rotation, Beasley was moved to the bench, in a sixth man role. Beasley has played 34 games off the bench.
Beasley is currently averaging, in 41 games, 11.2ppg in 22.3mpg as well as 44% FG, 41% 3PT, 63% FT, 4.4rpg, 0.9apg, 0.4bpg, 0.4spg, 1.8fpg and 1.5topg.
