SALTY DOG

NBA ROLE: SKILLED OFFENSIVE FORWARD

 

No matter you how feel about Michael Beasley's game, one thing is certain…he can put the ball in the basket; doesn’t necessarily fit in every situation but when his duties are defined by a coach who believes in him, Beas transforms into a high-scoring, hybrid four who can carry a team to victory on some nights with his silky J and polished scoring ability; on offense, Beas has plenty of moves (1-on-1) – loves driving right, finishing ‘strongman’ floaters with his left and launching faceup fadeaways or 1-2 dribble turnarounds; can make scoring look easy, loves to go at mismatches: will jab & shoot over defenders, post up or take it to the basket; decent three-point shooter; gotta know what you’re in for – Beasley won't take the easiest shots; has learned to amplify scoring output in limited minutes; signed w/ Pistons (Summer '19) – utility scorer under Dwane Casey
