The Minnesota Timberwolves showed their support to Malik Beasley, after the four-year NBA guard was arrested for narcotics possession and possession of a stolen gun in Plymouth on Saturday.
Beasley finished the season with Minnesota, and he’s still expected to be part of the organization’s long term future being a restricted free agent this offseason.
The Wolves’ president Gersson Rosas expressed his support for Beasley after he was arrested by Plymouth police.
“Malik is family, and we talk about family. It’s not only when it’s easy and good but when it’s hard and tough,” Rosas said, per Star Tribune’s Chris Hine. “We’ve put a statement out and to be fair we’re letting the legal process run its course and gathering as much information as possible.”
“I don’t think anybody wants to go through what’s happened here …” Rosas continued. “He’s family. We’re going to support him. We’re going to do the best that we can.”
The Timberwolves acquired Beasley via trade from the Nuggets back in February.
