Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley was arrested Saturday on felony weapons and drug charges, according to ESPN.
Beasley, 23, brandished a gun at someone, according to the report. Police found guns and marijuana in Beasley’s Plymouth, Minn. home after obtaining a search warrant. Beasley is facing felony charges of possession of controlled substance/narcotics and receiving/concealing stolen property. He is currently being held without bail at Hennepin County Jail.
“At the time of the incident, multiple individuals were present at the residence,” Beasley’s attorney Steve Haney told ESPN. “The allegations against Malik will be defended vigorously.”
The Athletic reports that police have received multiple trespassing complaints on Beasley’s home in the past.
“We are aware of the situation involving Malik Beasley and are in the process of gathering information at this time,” the Timberwolves said in a statement Sunday morning.
Beasley partook in the first week of the Timberwolves’ voluntary three-week camp — allowed by the NBA for the eight teams not invited to the Orlando bubble — but wasn’t present last week, per The Athletic.
Beasley spent his first three-plus seasons with the Denver Nuggets before he was traded to Minnesota in February, and the 2016 first-round pick had a big breakout after the trade. In the 14 games he played for the Timberwolves before the COVID-19 shutdown, Beasley averaged 20.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and shot 42.6 percent from behind the arc. Beasley is set to become a restricted free agent after the season.
