Michael Beasley (208 cm, Kansas State’08) has called time on his short stint with the Memphis Grizzlies (NBA) and penned with Shanghai Dongfang Sharks (China, CBA). The forward joined the Grizzlies pre-season camp a month ago, but his chances of reaching the season starting roster seemed unlikely. The chance to earn good money and play consistent hoops in China persuaded the American to make the switch to Shanghai.
Last season Michael Beasley started the season with the Phoenix Suns before moving out to the Miami Heat for his second stint with the Florida franchise. With the Heat he played 59 games and averaged 7.6 points and 3.0 rebounds. In previous campaigns the 25-year old played with the Suns and the Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA.
