E.S.P.JEN: NBA -- Phoenix Suns Releases Michael Beasley

Michael Beasley of the Phoenix Suns has been released from the team for his issues off the court.

What would cause the number 2 draft pick of the 2008 NBA Draft to be terminated you ask?

Beasley was driving around Arizona in early August with his car reeking of marijuana when officers pulled him over. Marijuana was also found in the car when it was searched.

According to NBA.com, Beasley will be paid $7 million to leave the team and they’ll be saving $2 million since they didn’t waive the 24 year old forward.

$7 million to leave a team? Hmmm he can cry all the way to the bank with that.
