The Detroit Pistons have signed free agent forward Michael Beasley. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Beasley signs with the Pistons after previously being suspended for the first five games of the season. On August 8th, he was suspended five games for violating the league’s anti-drug policy.

His suspension reportedly was during his hiatus from the league when he was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers when his mother was dying. She died in December. 

Following his return to the league, he was traded from the Lakers to the Los Angeles Clippers, along with Ivica Zubac, for Mike Muscala. He was then bought out by the Clippers and played in with Guangdong Southern Tigers in China.

If Beasley makes the roster, this will be his eighth NBA team. Besides playing for the Lakers, he also played for the Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Houston Rockets. 

Now, the Pistons have the top two picks of the 2008 NBA Draft. The team also signed Derrick Rose in the off-season.

With the Lakers, he appeared in 26 games, including two starts. He averaged 7.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 10.7 minutes per game in a bench role. 

The 30-year-old Cheverly, Maryland native had 19 points in a game as a season-high for the Lakes during his short-tenure with the team. His career-best is 42 points in a game with the Timberwolves in a 98-89 at Power Balance Pavillon in Sacramento, California in November 2010.
