Report: Lakers work out forward Michael Beasley

Wednesday July 30th, 2014

The Los Angeles Lakers worked out free agent forward Michael Beasley on Wednesday, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles

Beasley, the No. 2 pick in the 2008 draft, has played for the Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns in his six-year NBA career. Last season, he signed with the Heat, the team that drafted him, for the second time and appeared in 55 games, averaging 15.1 minutes, 7.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game.

If the Lakers sign him, Beasley would be joining a crowded wing rotation. The team re-signed wings Nick Young, Xavier Henry and Wesley Johnson this offseason and is expecting 16-time All-Star Kobe Bryant back from injury.
