    The Shanxi Loongs of the Chinese Basketball Association are trying to bring Michael Beasley back to China.

    Beasley agreed to terms with the Pistons last month but he never officially signed with them as the team opted to go with Joe Johnson instead. Beasley has already played in China with Shanghai, Shandong and last year with Guangdong averaging 22.4 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists.

    The Pistons have waived Michael Beasley on Thursday following the signing of Joe Johnson.

    Beasley's fate was sealed when the Pistons reached an agreement with Johnson a short while ago. Beasley will look to latch on elsewhere, though his five-game suspension for violating the league's anti-drug policy could pose an issue.

    According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, forward Michael Beasley has agreed to a one-year deal with the Pistons.

    Beasley was initially leaning towards accepting a deal in China, but a stint with the Pistons should obviously trump that. He will likely be the primary backup of Blake Griffin. Look to him as a DFS punt play on days where Griffin sits out due to load management.

    Michael Beasley is reportedly leaning towards accepting an offer in China that is worth approximately $5 million, according to Stadium's Jeff Goodman.

    Beasley was just suspended for five games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy, but he was highly unlikely to open the year in the NBA anyway. He finished last season in China after being waived by the Clippers and his NBA career might've already seen its final chapter.

    The NBA has suspended free agent Michael Beasley for five games due to a violation of the league's anti-drug policy.

    It is unclear whether Beasley will return to the NBA this season after finishing last year in the CBA. The news of this suspension will only further prevent teams from adding the former second overall pick from 2008. He can be ignored from a fantasy perspective.

    Ex-Lakers forward Michael Beasley is finalizing a deal to play with Guangdong Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Beasley returns to a league he is familiar with after an up and down season with the Lakers where he failed to produce consistently. It’s the smart thing to do since the Chinese team is offering him a lucrative deal and we wouldn’t expect to see him play again in the NBA, at least this season. Drop him if you haven’t already.

    Michael Beasley has been waived by the Los Angeles Clippers.

    This came as no surprise given the team's focus on youth and rebuilding at this point. Beasley might land another gig once he clears waivers but is not likely to ping on fantasy radars. Leave him on the wire for now.

    The Clippers are expected to waive Michael Beasley, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

    Beasley would've factored into the power forward mix for LA but there's little upside in having him around considering their current standing in the playoff picture, even behind the brittle Danilo Gallinari. We'll see if Beasley can find a new landing spot, though his recent spat with Luke Walton might not help his chances.

    Michael Beasley has been traded to the Clippers.

    He'll have to move his stuff all the way across the hall. Beasley might help the Clippers at the tail end of their power forward rotation but isn't going to play enough to matter in most fantasy leagues. The door's certainly open for a must-add period if Danilo Gallinari gets hurt again, however.

    Shams Charania is reporting that a heated scene unfolded in the Lakers locker room after Saturday's loss where multiple veterans, including Michael Beasley, had "an emotionally-charged verbal exchange" with Luke Walton.

    Walton reportedly extolled the virtues of playing unselfishly, when a few veterans decided to respond with some of their own commentary. Sam Amick of The Athletic mentioned JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson as others who took issue with Walton, with McGee apparently the most angered. There could be some team-imposed discipline to come out of this, and it certainly won't help Walton's case amidst rumors that the LeBron camp would prefer a different coach. Ty Lue's still a free agent.

    Michael Beasley drew the surprise start on Sunday night and responded with eight points (4-of-12 shooting), six rebounds, a steal and three blocks in 26 minutes.

    This line goes totally against type, as Beasley is more of a hollow scorer who gets his buckets relatively efficiently. He's getting enough run with LeBron out to attract deep-league attention but we'd avoid Beasley if at all possible. Lance Stephenson also popped with 17 points, four assists, three triples and a steal on 7-of-10 from the field but he might be less of an asset than Beasley.

    Michael Beasley will draw the start against the Suns alongside Ivica Zubac, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram.

    The Lakers are officially beat-up as only Ingram is a regular starter for the team. It will be interesting to see how this game goes as both teams are missing key contributors.

    Michael Beasley put up 15 points on Monday night, going 7-of-8 from the field with five rebounds, two assists and a block.

    The blowout asterisk is prevalent here but Beasley will give the Lakers some individual scoring punch, which is a needed element while they're without all of their point guards. He's a fine scorer for deep-league use but we wouldn't trust him all that much.

    Michael Beasley hurt his hand in Friday's loss to the Jazz and had to leave the game late but was able lead the Lakers' reserves with 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block.

    X-rays thankfully came back negative and hopefully, Beasley will not be forced to miss too much time. He's been turning a few heads lately with some deep-league value performances. In his last five games, Beasley has been posting 13.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.

    Michael Beasley made every minute of his time on the floor on Wednesday count, scoring 19 points in 19 minutes, adding two rebounds, four dimes, one triple and two blocks.

    Beaze shot an efficient 9-of-13 from the field in an effective showing off the bench. This marks his third straight game of double-digit scoring, putting him on radars in 16-team leagues or deeper.
