PHOENIX (AP) Former K-State all-American and free agent forward Michael Beasley has agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal with the Phoenix Suns. NBA free agent deals can’t officially be announced by their new teams until July 11. Beasley was the second overall pick in the 2008 draft. He’s averaged 15.1 points per game in his four NBA seasons, two with Miami and the past two with Minnesota. His best season was 2010-2011, when he averaged 19.2 points with the Timberwolves.
It has been a busy 24 hours for the Suns, who agreed to an offer sheet with restricted free agent guard Eric Gordon on Tuesday, then agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that sends Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.
