The Phoenix Suns are looking to add scorers to their roster, and their are few players in the NBA today who focus on their offensive game quite like Michael Beasley does. Despite a very high draft selection a few years ago, Beasley has failed to live up to expectations in Minnesota with the Timberwolves. Now with a few seasons under his belt, he's looking to join a new team for the coming years.
According to this latest report, the Suns are interested in the versatile wing and will be meeting with him on Wednesday.

The news came before the Suns and Eric Gordon agreed to a four-year deal, so we'll see how those negotiations affect Beasley's should he go through with the visit. Phoenix has money to spend and the team is eager to return to the playoffs; signing proven scorers in the way of Gordon and Beasley could be a huge step in the right direction for the franchise.
