Free agent forward Michael Beasley has reached an agreement to join the Trail Blazers’ squad for this year’s Las Vegas Summer League. The Athletic’s Shams Charania delivered the news on Thursday.

11-year NBA veteran Michael Beasley has agreed to play with the Portland Trail Blazers at Las Vegas Summer League in August, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.

Beasley, who was selected with the No. 2 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, last appeared in an NBA regular season game in the 2018-19 campaign. In the lead up to last year’s postseason bubble in Orlando, Beasley reached an agreement with the Nets. That contract was voided prior to the start of the 2020 NBA Playoffs.

In the 2018 offseason, it was rumored that the Blazers had expressed interest in signing Beasley. Beasley would go on to sign with the Lakers later that summer.

The former Kansas State star has appeared in 609 regular season games and possesses a career scoring average of 12.4 points per game.
