Lakers Close to Obtaining Michael Beasley?
The Lakers are reportedly close to a trade that would bring forward Michael Beasley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 draft, from the Minnesota Timberwolves, but Lakers coach Mike Brown said Wednesday night when about it: “This is the first time I have heard his name today.”
Beasley, 23, has intrigued the Lakers previously, although there are questions about his dedication and focus.
The swap might cost the Lakers at least their part-time point guard Steve Blake.
