The Minnesota Timberwolves have opened NBA free agency by signing Malik Beasley to a fresh 4-year deal worth a total of $60 million ($15M/year). Next week, he will turn 24 years old and his 2019 season was his best.

After being traded from Denver to Minneapolis, Beasley’s minutes nearly doubled and he blossomed because of it. His 20 points and 5 rebounds per game (with a .426 knockdown percentage from three) sent him into the offseason as a top priority for Gersson Rosas.

Gersson Rosas, other Timberwolves executives and players alike have all stood behind Malik, even as his legal situation spiraled downward with every news report that dropped this offseason.

Still, all reports lead toward the Wolves standing by the Florida State alum. ‘Family members don’t quit on each other when times get tough’, is the stance they took. We’ll find out how well that works out over the next 4 years. Paying Beasley $15 million per year will look like a steal, if this all blows over and is forgotten by time.
