Woj notes it’s “significant cash” for a short run of two months.
Beasley, 30, was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers earlier this month after being traded there from the Lakers. Beasley was apparently involved in a heated locker room exchange with Lakers coach Luke Walton following a loss earlier this year. He denied the altercation got physical:
“I’ve sat back in the past when stories have been twisted and misreported, but I won’t do that this time. I respect Luke and I respect this team. We are trying to win a championship together.”
Beasley also made headlines in January for attempting to check-in to a game wearing practice shorts.
Beasley was originally drafted No. 2 overall by the Miami Heat in the 2008 Draft. He has played for seven NBA teams and averaged seven points and 2.3 rebounds per game for the Lakers this season.
