With the NBA trading period just about coming to a close (March 15), Michael Beasley’s future with the Minnesota Timberwolves is still uncertain as the T-Wolves seeks to free up some space upfront.

Derrick Williams has been mentioned as a possible replacement if he finally moves to another team. Right now, the teams who are likely to take him on include the Los Angeles Lakers, New Jersey Nets, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics.

With all these NBA teams lined up, it should tell you he’s got something to offer. He is averaging 12.8 points and 5.3 rebounds this season. His success rate with all his three-pointers is 44.2 percent. Last season was even better; he recorded 19.2 points per game.

Now, the challenge for the Minnesota Timberwolves is who will take on Beasley’s $6.2 million salary plus his character issues? Of all the teams mentioned, only the LA Lakers has a trade exception that gives them the option not to trade in a player for Beasley.

It was reported that the Timberwolves were expecting The Lakers to give them their latest NBA Drafts but the Lakers vision to keep the young and talented for the future does not make room for such trade ins.

So Beasley is left in a fix, with his future left to be decided by so many unknown factors. Where will he end up finally?
