Wojnarowski reports that Beasley "spent several days working out for the Grizzlies this week and chose that offer because of an opportunity to make the roster as a backup power forward."
The free agent spent last season with the Miami Heat, averaging 7.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 55 games.
A former No. 2 pick in 2008, Beasley has also played for the Timberwolves and Suns. In his six-year NBA career, he's averaged 13.1 points and 4.9 rebounds.
The 25-year-old was a consensus first team All-American during his only collegiate season at Kansas State.
