The Milwaukee Bucks had a big night from Malik Beasley despite losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder 124-101 in another NBA preseason contest. Beasley led the Bucks in scoring with 20 points in 20 minutes of action. He also grabbed four rebounds and recorded one assist.
Malik Beasley is going to be the starting shooting guard this season for the Milwaukee Bucks after Grayson Allen was traded in a three-team deal to the Phoenix Suns. That was the same trade that sent Damian Lillard from the Portland Trail Blazers to Milwaukee.
Beasley is 26 years old and is going to be playing on a 1-year deal with the franchise. He played for the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz last season and averaged 12.7 PPG. Malik Beasley has the talent to be a solid scorer this season for the Bucks.
As a fourth option on this basketball team behind Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kjhris Middleton, and Damian Lillard, this can be a very dangerous thing for them.
Milwaukee Bucks Fans React to Malik Beasley’s Big Night

Malik Beasley was such a steal for the Bucks, even if Dame has a bad night we have Malik and Marjon 😭

Malik Beasley is one of those scared role players who is extremely scared of the pressure playing with legends like LeBron, MJ, Kobe. He’ll never be a playoff sniper for championship teams like Steve Kerr, Mike Miller or Derek Fisher were. But he has a chance to this season.

Malik Beasley is better than Grayson Allen, there’s no doubt in my mind.

There is no doubt that Malik Beasley is going to be better this season than Grayson Allen. Allen was going to be a pending free agent at the end of the 2023-2024 NBA regular season anyway, so it was a good thing that Milwaukee moved on from him. They actually upgraded at the shooting guard position because of it. The Bucks will have one more preseason game against the Memphis Grizzlies before the NBA regular season begins.
