Beasley joins Suns, says ‘I just want to win’
PHOENIX (AP) — Michael Beasley says his marijuana issues are a thing of the past, that he’s ready to show the Phoenix Suns that their support for him is warranted.
The 6-foot-10 forward signed a three-year, $ 18 million contract with Phoenix on Friday, then faced questions about his past head-on at a news conference.
Beasley says that he’s learned that “10 minutes of feeling good” is not worth putting his life, career and legacy in jeopardy.
Beasley, the second pick overall in the 2008 draft, played his first two seasons with Miami and the last two with Minnesota. He became a free agent when the Timberwolves declined an $ 8 million option to keep him.
