A former Phoenix Suns player was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at his Scottsdale home in early 2013 in a lawsuit filed in federal court Monday afternoon. The woman accused Michael Beasley, who the Suns waived in September 2013 following an arrest for marijuana possession, of stripping her clothing, choking her until she was unconscious and repeatedly sexually assaulting her, according to court documents. A representative for Beasley did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday morning. Arizona Republic

The civil suit filed in U.S. District Court requests $25 million in damages for allegations including sexual assault, infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment, according to court documents. The woman claims that she and a friend went to a Scottsdale home that Beasley shared with a friend on Jan. 13, 2013 and that Beasley and the other man "physically overpowered, restrained, grabbed and groped," the woman, according to court records. The lawsuit also states that the men "stripped her clothing from her, repeatedly choked her into unconsciousness, and repeatedly sexually assaulted and raped her." Arizona Republic

The Clippers were also hoping to land Rivers, the son of Clippers Coach Doc Rivers who was recently traded from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Boston Celtics, and were believed to be engaging the Phoenix Suns, among other teams, in talks to take on the $1.8 million in salary the Clippers would need to unload to complete such a trade.

Wright talked with coach Brad Stevens extensively over the last few days and knew at Friday morning’s shootaround he could be gone. “I really appreciated him in the time I’ve been here, he’s a great guy,” Wright said. “A heck of a coach. He’s got this thing going in the right direction. He treated me with class the entire time I was here. I enjoyed the short stint working here with him.” Said Stevens of Wright: “He’s a great kid. I said that many times. I really like the way he plays. With the guys that they have in that [Phoenix] system, he’ll really do well. It’s another jolt to your system.” Boston Globe
