Nets Trade Rumors: New Jersey Interested In Michael Beasley?

Is Michael Beasley on the radar of the New Jersey Nets? The Minnesota Timberwolves forward has become expendable due to the emergence of rookie Derrick Williams. Now the Timberwolves are looking to deal Beasley, according to multiple reports. Among the teams interested in Beasley is the Nets.

In fact, the Nets were on the short list of teams contacted by Minnesota.

According to multiple FOX Sports Ohio sources, the Wolves have already spoken with New Jersey, Houston and the L.A. Lakers about Beasley. (Fox Sports Ohio)

However, the report also says that Beasley's most likely landing spot is with the Boston Celtics, which might unload Jermaine O'Neal to get Beasley.

Beasley is averaging the fewest points (12.8) and rebounds per game (5.3) of his career this season.

The Nets have been trying to upgrade their small forward position, and talent-wise the 6-foot-9 Beasley would do just that. If the Nets are trying to put together a trade for Beasley they have until March 15, the NBA trade deadline.
