Michael Beasley has been officially released by the Phoenix Suns as of Tuesday. With the Phoenix Suns having shed themselves of Michael Beasley, questions remain. “The Suns were devoted to Michael Beasley’s success in Phoenix,” said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. By this Babby meant the Suns waited until they could stretch the guaranteed money in Beasley’s final season over three years, as was the case at the start of September, rather than stretching the remainder of the money owed to Beasley over five years. Beasley’s one year in the Valley was defined by everything he did off the court. New Suns general manager Ryan McDonough was said to be eager to move Beasley out as part of the ongoing reboot in Phoenix in the wake of last season's 25-57 mark, followed by the offseason ouster of previous GM Lance Blanks.The saga continues.
