Recent legal issues aside, Malik Beasley figures to be an interesting case in free agency this year. Despite his status as a restricted free agent, he is plausibly set for a pay increase due to performing better than expected after getting an increased role with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The shooting guard has proven to be an effective and reasonably versatile scorer, so the interest will undoubtedly be there. Rather than let burgeoning talent walk when they are trying to build around Karl-Anthony Towns, the Timberwolves are likely to hold onto their up and coming potential star. Do not expect to see Beasley in a different uniform next season.
