WOLVES' SG MALIK BEASLEY RELEASED after facing potential felony GUN chargers

BEASLEY COVER

The Minnesota Timberwolves' very own, Malik Beasly was arrested last Saturday in Plymouth on multiple felony charges but was released the following day according to local authorities.

The up-and-coming 23-year-old guard who averaged 20.7 points in the 14 games he played for the Wolves after being traded by the Nuggets seemed to have finally found his footing in the league while transitioning in Minnesota.

Unfortunately, due to last weekend's events, Malik has now found himself in the middle of an open investigation which could potentially face him with controlled substance/narcotics and felony receiving/concealing stolen property charges.

According to a statement put out by Plymouth PD its officers were dispatched to Beasley's residence after an unnamed civilians reported a suspect walking up to their car with a gun in hand, advising them to swiftly get off the property.

After the police set up a perimeter around Beasley's residency, a vehicle with 3 individuals including Malik was caught trying to leave the premises. The incident enabled the police to obtain a search warrant for Beasley's property and inside found narcotics (marijuana) and multiple firearms, of which one was confirmed to be stolen.

Sadly, Malik isn't the first NBA player to get in gun trouble, but his case is the first one in recent history. The last recorded gun-related incidents were in 2014. when Raymond Felton turned himself following an arrest warrant for possessing an unlicensed firearm, and 2013. when Terrance Williams pulled out a gun the mother of his child in order to threaten her.

Incidents like these remind us that mental health and player maturity are key aspects of the development of young players in the league, and because of that, the NBA should maybe put a greater emphasis on assessing the psychological profiles of their players.

As far as the T-Wolves concerns on this developing situation, they have relesead an official statement that says the following:

"We are aware of the situation involving Malik Beasley and are in the process of gathering information at this time."

As of right now, Beasly is a restricted free agent, having finished his rookie scale contract this season. Getting arrested is never helpful with getting a contract with an NBA team, and Beasly will have a lot of explaining to convince a GM he is worth another shot.
