Micheal Beasley says he has dropped a lot of weight

While Beasley complimented Joakim Noah for showing up at workouts “cut up with 25 abs,’’ their new small forward is proud of the offseason weight he lost on a vegan-oriented diet. Beasley cut out sugar and chicken fillet sandwiches and limited cheesesteaks to twice a month. Beasley said he’s dropped from the 235-240 range to 215.

“I’m the only guy you ever met 10 years removed from college that’s 20 pounds lighter,’’ Beasley said. “I got a lot more energy, my body fat is zero, so I feel great. Hopefully I get faster, jump higher and my wind is better. We’ll see.”
