Phoenix Suns meeting with Michael Beasley, Raymond FeltonPosted by Inside Hoops
The Phoenix Suns apparently are envisioning a lineup for next season that looks something like this: Raymond Felton, Eric Gordon, Michael Beasley, Channing Frye/Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat.
That is what you would have to take from the Suns’ hope to find agreeable contract terms today with Beasley during his Valley visit. Beasley’s visit comes two days after the Suns met Beasley in Los Angeles, a day after Gordon’s commitment to sign a four-year, $58 million offer sheet and the day before Felton visits in search of his fifth team in four seasons.
Beasley, 23, is also getting interest from Detroit but wants to come to Phoenix. A source said his agent, Jeff Schwartz, feels like Suns coach Alvin Gentry would be as good of a fit for Beasley as he was for Lamar Odom, when he was an immature, inconsistent young player for Gentry’s Clippers.
