It appears Michael Beasley won’t be heading back to China after all.
In fact, he’s being rewarded for getting suspended.
After being reported to be seriously considering a contract with a team in the Chinese Basketball Association while a 5-game NBA suspension looms, Beasley has agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Pistons, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Beasley was hit with a five-game suspension earlier this week for violating the league’s anti-drug policy.
