Beasley & Suns Agree to Buyout

PHOENIX (AP)   The Phoenix Suns and former K-State all-American Michael Beasley have reached an agreement to terminate the contract of the troubled power forward.

The move on Tuesday will cost the franchise $7 million, a $2 million savings from what Beasley would have been due had he simply been waived. It also represents a significant reduction in what the hit on the team’s salary cap would have been.

Beasley was arrested a month ago in suburban Scottsdale on charges of felony marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.  It was the latest in a series of incidents involving the drug that have plagued his NBA career after he was selected as the #2 overall draft pick out of K-State in 2008 by the Miami Heat.
