Beasley was released Sunday, and the case is currently part of an open investigation, according to Plymouth police. Beasley is a restricted free agent and Rosas has said prior to Beasley’s arrest that Beasley is in the team’s long-term plans. “Malik is family, and we talk about family. It’s not only when it’s easy and good but when it’s hard and tough,” Rosas said. “We’ve put a statement out and to be fair we’re letting the legal process run its course and gathering as much information as possible.”
The Wolves traded for Beasley, 23, from the Nuggets in February, and have high hopes for re-signing him as a key piece of the franchise moving forward. He is not participating in the team’s current group workouts, but did post to social media Monday while working out in Wolves gear. “I don’t think anybody wants to go through what’s happened here …” Rosas said. “He’s family. We’re going to support him. We’re going to do the best that we can. But he’s got some things he’s got to take care of. The legal process has some things that have to be processed and we’ll go from there, but we’re a family and we work through things together.”
Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley was arrested Saturday night in Plymouth on charges of possession of narcotics and receiving and/or concealing stolen property, according to Plymouth police. Beasley was released from jail Sunday but the investigation into the incident is still open, according to Plymouth police Sgt. Jeff Stimac.
According to a news release from Plymouth police, officers were called after someone reported a weapons offense after stopping their car in front of a residence in Plymouth. While stopped, a suspect came out, tapped on the window of the car and pointed a gun at them, telling them to get off the property. As the car drove away, the suspect held the gun up to his shoulder, pointing it at the car, the release said. Police then established a perimeter to try and locate the suspect. Police noticed the smell of marijuana as well.
While the police had the perimeter set up, a car attempted to leave and police stopped the car. Three occupants in the car were detained and later released. There was another male, who identified himself as the owner of the property, outside yelling at officers. Officers obtained a warrant to search the residence and found narcotics and "numerous" guns, one of which was stolen, according to the release.

The Lakers have not settled upon their starting lineup, sources told ESPN. Though Schroder will be considered for the starting point guard spot, he could also be asked to fill in off the bench, sources said.
