The former number two pick by the Miami Heat in the 2008 NBA Draft (taken after Derrick Rose) is heading overseas to start a career with the Shanghai Sharks of China. Ironically, former NBA star Yao Ming owns the sharks. Beasley signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Grizzlies trying to make their last roster spot, but I guess Beasley decided it wasn’t going to happen.

Beasley is still only 25 years old so don’t act like his career is done yet.
