Default Wolves wind up not trading Mike Beasley

Minneapolis Star Tribune reports:

The Wolves, according to league sources, most seriously discussed a three-way trade with Portland and the Lakers that would have sent Beasley to L.A., a first-round pick from the Lakers to the Blazers and brought the Wolves shooting guard Jamal Crawford. But the deal collapsed when the Wolves refused to take back a contract -- most likely Derek Fisher's $3.4 million option for next season -- to save the Lakers luxury-tax payments.

Beasley will become a free agent this summer, most likely an unrestricted one because the Wolves would have to guarantee him a whopping $8 million qualifying offer to keep the right to match any offers he might receive.

"That's really not up to me," Beasley said about his future with the franchise. "I would like to stay here. We all know my contract is expiring. I might need a new contract, can't play for free. That's not up to me."

That is a good thing. I am sure that we will work something out over the summer.
