Beasley, 29, averaged a solid 13.2 points in 22.3 minutes per game for the New York Knicks last season. He previously played with LeBron James on the Miami Heat during the 2013-14 season and often earned The King’s ire.
The former No. 2 overall pick should be able to provide instant offense off the bench for the Lakers. However, he will be yet another oddball character in the locker room to go along with the team’s signings of Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee, and Rajon Rondo in addition to James this offseason.
