Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Malik Beasley has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of threats of violence related to a September incident in which he was arrested, his attorney, Steven Haney, confirmed to ESPN on Monday.
Haney said Beasley, 24, won’t have to serve jail time or home confinement until after the 2020-21 NBA season. His sentence will not exceed 120 days. If Beasley successfully completes probation, his threat of violence charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor, according to Haney.
As part of the plea, a felony drug charge was dismissed
“This resolution will allow Malik to play the 2020-2021 NBA season and work on becoming the player and person we know he can be,” Haney told ESPN.
Beasley, who averaged 20.7 points in 14 games with the Timberwolves last season after being traded by the Denver Nuggets in February, was facing felony controlled substance/narcotics and felony receiving/concealing stolen

Sparks was arrested for Spurlock’s murder and later indicted by a grand jury. In September 2019, he pleaded not guilty.
Sparks is not eligible for the death penalty.
