NBA bans Beasley 5 games for drugs

ReutersMichael Beasley, an unsigned free agent and former second overall pick in the NBA draft, has been suspended five games by the league for a violation of its drug policy, according to The Athletic.

His suspension would start whenever he signs a new contract.

Beasley, 30, played 26 games (two starts) for the Los Angeles Lakers last season, averaging 7.0 points and 2.3 rebounds, before being traded with Ivica Zubac to the Los Angeles Clippers for Mike Muscala on Feb. 7.

The Clippers waived him two days later, and Beasley finished the season playing in China.
