Malik Beasley releases letter from prison
It was another disappointing season on the field for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2020-21. Off the field, it was also a roller coaster ride for some.
Malik Beasley pleaded guilty in February to a felony charge of threats of violence. This stems from an incident last September in which Beasley was accused of pointing a gun at a family member who had stopped outside his house..
The Timberwolves keeper was sentenced to 120 days in jail and began serving that sentence on June 1. He posted a letter to family members and fans on Friday.
Via Beasley’s Instagram account, the Timberwolves guard had a lot to say.
“I want people to learn from me, because it’s gonna be a hell of a story,” Beasley said. “This past year is just a chapter, and I was hoping you would stay tuned until the end.”
“I’m not looking for sympathy or anything like that, just to figure out that I could easily go to bed and I won’t,” Beasley wrote. “For those who care, I love you all and will return the favor I promise you.” – Malik Beasley.
Beasley was suspended from the Timberwolves by the NBA for 12 games in February after pleading guilty.
The Timberwolves signed Beasley to a four-year, $ 60 million contract last offseason after thriving in Minnesota after a brief stint after being traded from Denver.
For Beasley, the hope is that this will be the start of a real turnaround for the young three-point specialist.
He is expected to be released on August 17, given the good conduct.
