Lakers Turn Down Timberwolves Offer for Michael Beasley

Just a few days ago I reported that the Lakers had interest in acquiring Michael Beasley from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Well that rumor train has come to a hault as the Lakers have decided to not go through with the trade.

According to from ESPN.com:

The Minnesota Timberwolves offered to trade Michael Beasley to the Los Angeles Lakers for a first-round draft pick, but the Lakers turned them down, according to a league source. While Beasley, a talented and athletic small forward, would fill one of the Lakers’ greatest needs, the Lakers rejected the offer because they do not want to add to their luxury tax bill, according to the source. …. The Lakers have been interested in Beasley since December. Sources say if their trade for Paul had gone through, they would have subsequently made a trade for Beasley.

Laker nation doesn’t seem to be pleased with this decision by the Lakers.
