NBA veteran Jason Terry had high praise for Buck teammate Michael Beasley during an interview on SiriusXM NBA Radio.

“What happened to him is he was humbled by the experience when he was without the NBA,” Terry said. “He had to go over to China and play for a season. It’s different. It’s a reality check. It’s like, you were very blessed to play in this league and that was taken away from you. So when you come back, all of a sudden you mature very fast. Early on in his career, he was not mature. He had all the physical and athletic ability to play this game, but he lacked in the maturity department. I’ve seen a difference last year in Houston when he was there for his three months’ time.”

Beasley gave instant offense to Houston last season shooting a lot, as he is wont to do, but also with great percentages. The 27-year-old forward averaged 12.8 ppg on 52.2 percent shooting in just 18.2 mpg with the Rockets. With the Bucks, he’s scoring 5.8 points in 14.0 minutes per game so far this year.
