Free-agent forward Michael Beasley has agreed to a one-year deal with the Pistons, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

While there were reports that Beasley had been contemplating a return to China, he'll join a Pistons team intent on surrounding star Blake Griffin with an intriguing supporting cast.

Earlier this week, Beasley was suspended for five games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.

The US-China Trade war has turned in to currency war
Trump's tariff hikes have put downward pressure on the yuan by fueling fears that economic growth might weaken. This was seen by many as retaliation against new 10% tariffs imposed on Chinese by the Trump administration.

The 11-year veteran appeared in 26 games for the Los Angeles Lakers before being traded to the Los Angeles Clippers in February, where he was eventually waived.

Beasley is believed to have turned down an offer in China worth approximately $5 million to return to the National Basketball Association, according to Stadium's Jeff Goodman. Beasley averaged 7 points, 2.3 rebounds and a career-low 10.7 minutes per game in LA. The season before, he averaged 13.2 points per game in 74 contests with the New York Knicks.
