According to U.S. media reports, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley was arrested by police on Saturday local time for suspected possession of guns,
The Minnesota Timberwolves officially issued a statement on this. The Timberwolves said in a statement: "We have learned about this situation and are currently collecting more relevant information."
According to the local police, they received a report a day ago that Beasley’s residence contained weapons in private. The reporter told the police that they had parked the car in front of Beasley’s house when a suspect came over, knocked on the car window, pointed a gun at them, and advised them to leave the house.
According to the police statement, they set up an encirclement for arrest. A car tried to leave the property and was stopped by the police. Three people in the car were arrested and later released. A man who claimed to be the homeowner stood outside and yelled at the police.
The police subsequently obtained a search warrant and found drugs and a large number of guns in the property, one of which was confirmed to be stolen. Beasley’s lawyer, Hani, said in a statement: “There were many people in this residence at the time of the incident. Beasley’s allegations will be strongly defended.”
Malik Beasley was the 19th overall pick in the first round of 2016. In the first three and a half seasons of Beasley's career, he served as a substitute for the Denver Nuggets. Because the Nuggets have so many good players, Beasley did not get enough opportunities to perform. This season, Beasley was traded to the Timberwolves and finally had a chance to make a big splash. In 14 games played for the Timberwolves, Beasley averaged 20.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. After this season, Beasley will become a restricted free agent. According to his performance in the Timberwolves, he could have sought a big contract, but this arrest will undoubtedly cast a shadow over his future.
