NBA Draft 2011: Could Michael Beasley Be On His Way Out Of Minnesota?

We mentioned the glut of forwards that the Minnesota Timberwolves now find themselves with after the drafting of University of Arizona star Derrick Williams with the draft's second overall pick. After being interviewed, Williams declared that he would like to play the "three," or small forward, spot in the lineup. That spot is currently occupied by Michael Beasley. So, what does that mean for the Timberwolves?

Well, there are folks on Twitter. . .specifically Fox Sports North's Anthony Maggio. . .that think that this could potentially spell the end of the Michael Beasley era in Minnesota.

Or, you know, the Derrick Williams era in Minnesota could never actually get underway.

Beasley, who was acquired from the Miami Heat prior to the 2010 NBA Draft, averaged 19.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in 73 games for the Timberwolves during the 2010-11 season.

What do you think, Timberwolves fans? If the team is only going to keep one or the other, which one do you think should stay in Minnesota, and who do you think should be sent packing?
