The Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard, Malik Beasley, grew up as the middle child, with one elder brother and one younger sister.

Malik attended high school at Saint Francis School and played collegiate basketball for Florida State Seminoles.
After averaging 15.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in his freshman year of college, he declared for the NBA draft.
The Denver Nuggets drafted Malik in the 2016 NBA draft as the 19th overall pick, and he played for them for four seasons.
The Nuggets then traded him to the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he signed a lucrative 4-year contract worth $60 million.
Malik played three seasons with the Timberwolves before being traded to the Utah Jazz on July 6, 2022.
His time with the Jazz was brief, as Jazz traded him mid-season to the Lakers.
