Earlier today, reports came out stating that the San Antonio Spurs are working out Michael Beasley. Yes, Beasley the one that tends to play lazy defense and a questionable shot selection. Despite that Michael Beasley is a talented player that hasn’t received big minutes since 2011.

The number two pick of the 2008 draft hasn’t been the player that many thought he would be after a year at Kansas State. Not all of it is his fault. Beasley is not a guy who comes in and gives the team energy on defense or comes in and grabs 10 rebounds in small minutes. He is a scorer that has proven he can score 15-20 points when given the minutes.

After two solid seasons to start his career on the Miami Heat, he averaged 19.2 points on the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2010-11. Ever since Michael Beasley hasn’t averaged more than 23 minutes and has a combined 29 starts. Last season when the Miami Heat got Beasley many thought he would disintegrate the clubhouse, but that wasn’t the case. Instead, Michael Beasley who played 15 minutes a game, played hard when his number was called and he shot a career high 50% from the field.

If the Spurs sign Beasley, what will he help with?

Michael Beasley, who is only 25 years old, will give the Spurs a young scorer with solid athleticism. With Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Tim Duncan at the ends of their careers, a versatile forward that can score 20 on any given night won’t hurt. Plus having the best coach in the business (Gregg Popovich) will certainly go a long way for a player like Beasley. The Spurs have a young talent in Kawhi Leonard, adding another one won’t hurt. Who knows maybe Leonard can teach him a thing or two on defense!

If the Spurs want him, they better hurry because the Los Angeles Lakers have already worked him out a few times!
