Beasley has twice played in China, including before signing with the Lakers last summer. He was previously named the CBA’s International MVP in 2015-16 while playing for the Shandong Golden Stars and also starred for the Shanghai Sharks during the 2014-15 season.
This season, with the Lakers, he averaged seven points, 2.3 rebounds, and one assist in just under 11 minutes per contest. He was then traded to the Clippers earlier this month and subsequently waived, but should he once again prove to be effective while playing abroad, it may translate into another NBA contract.
