    scorer? are you nuts? he scores because he shoots, he doesnt shoot because he scores. He's losing minutes to Williams and last year they basically gave him the starting SF job on a pedestal. Not a head case? Well he's definitely talented enough to be a top 5-10 SF in this league, and I wouldn't trade Gary Forbes for him. Can we please stop caring about Michael Beasley? Not a head case? Did you see this week's Shaqtin a fool on Inside the NBA? Beasley was rubbing Tolliver's knee while sitting down....because he thought it was HIS knee....guy can't even tell his own body parts, so maybe he's not a 'headcase' but he's smoked himself retarded or something. I'm also really sick of people pointing to college success. College is not a roadmap to NBA success. And draft position means nothing. Darko Milicic was the #2 pick in one of the top classes ever...does that mean you should keep expecting him to play up to that? And there are tons more examples elsewhere, of all kinds of top 5 picks that don't turn into much despite 'promise' they show. Fact of the matter if he doesn't snap out of it soon, don't expect Beasley to ever live up to his promise. I mean seriously, a 6'9 or 6'10 SF who has a good all around game, good length and is ambidextrous and he struggles to earn playing time and/or his coaches trust......

    here's the shaqtin a fool

    that was awesome! Nick Young's lay-up is just embarrassing lol

    I think the fact that Beasley is young, and definitely talentely, but has been traded and now heavily shopped speaks volumes. Something just isn't right!

    He was definitely smoked up when he rubbed Tolliver's knee. What was funnier was Tolliver's reaction....not much, as if he knew why it happened!!

    Agreed. I think any discussion about Beasley is a waste of time, given BC's past decisions about him. It's not like Beasley has done anything in Minnesota to improve his game and/or image.

    Honestly I like James Johnson's progression at the 3, and would like to give him some more time to develop. If we can get beasley for cheap, then sure why not, he is very skilled. I wouldn't give up anything important to get him, but he would be a nice piece to have.

    Default Should the raptors pursue Beasley?

    Minnesota has no given a qualifying offer to Michael Beasley making him an unrestricted free agent according to Chris Sheridan.
    Should the raptors go after him? He'd be solid at the SF and would solve that problem. We probably have the cap space to do it even if we do get Nash we could amnesty Amir or Calderon and sign him with that.
    Beasley averaged 11.5 points and 4.4 rebounds on 45% from the field in just 23 minutes. He's a little one dimensional but I'm sure under Dwayne Casey he'd be able to become a better defender.

    I don't know. For someone with such talent, his former teams have given up on him so early. He might have character issues, but he certainly has talent.

    Apparently that was the main reason. He has no work ethic to improve any other part of his game other than scoring. And maybe if he has a character problem, less teams would want him and we could get him for cheaper.

    Not a chance BC even considers him. If BC wanted Beasley, he could have got him in the Bosh trade. He's done nothing in Minnesota to change the perceptions about him - talent going to waste, who would be a bad influence on all the young guys. Pass.

    If we can get him for cheap cheap, then sure. If we have to give him a legit contract, then no thank you.

    His qualifying offer would've been 8.3 million I think? Since he's not expected to get that much, maybe 7 mil or something along those lines

    I think if free agency happens and we can't get AK47, Batum, or Hill and he's still on the board he should definitely be considered.

    Okay, so if you extend the qualifying offer and no other team offered, what happens ?

    You'll never see him in a Raptors uniform as long as Colangelo is GM.

    I'm not too up to date with these kinds of things. Can you please explain to me why? BC really doesn't like Beasley?

    Look at a closeup vid/interview of him and then check his eyes. There is also evidence/background why his eyes look that way. And it has nothing to do with his eyelashes!
