The Memphis Grizzlies have announced that they have signed free-agent forward Michael Beasley and have added him to their training camp roster.
The former No.2 overall pick in the 2008 Draft averaged 7.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 15.1 minutes last season with the Miam iHeat, but his play didn’t do enough to convince the franchise to keep him on.
Despite featuring in 55 games last season, Beasley found himself on the bench for most of the Heat’s playoff run, with questions being raised by teammates over his attitude.
Nevertheless, he will now hope to build on his career averages of 13.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 409 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns and Heat.
Meanwhile, the Grizzlies also added the likes of Patrick Christopher, Luke Hancock and Kalin Lucas to their roster along with Earl Clark.
It remains to be seen how many of the players remain on the roster ahead of the new season, but the franchise have certainly made a conscious effort add depth with training camp set to get underway next week.
With just weeks before the new season begins, Memphis will once again hope to be involved in the playoff story as they look to cause problems for the more fancied teams in the Western Conference.
