NBA Rumors: Phoenix Suns Pursuing Former K-State Star Michael Beasley

Former Kansas State hoopster Michael Beasley might be taking his talents to Arizona. Despite some character issues in Minnesota, the Suns might be interested in Beasley because of his potential, according to The Arizona Republic.

He is a popular teammate but gets character questions, especially after a marijuana arrest a year ago, an incident at the rookie transition program in 2008 and reports that Miami pushed him to enter a rehabilitation center in 2009. Surely, part of the Suns' visit is to better contemplate Beasley's fit in Phoenix, where the player support staff has been expanded in the past year.

Beasley averaged a career-low 11.5 points per game for Minnesota last season. His minutes decreased because of his play and the fact that the Timberwolves have several talented low-post players.

He still has a lot of time to develop as he will enter the season with his new team at just 23 years old.
