Over the course of his career, Anthony Edwards has played alongside over three dozen different teammates in Minnesota. From his jumbled rookie year where nothing seemed to make a lot of sense, to his first playoff appearance in year two, to a transitional third season, all the way until the breakthrough fourth year, Ant has enjoyed the company of plenty of talented and skillful teammates.

But out of all the teammates he has played alongside through the four years of his professional career thus far, less than half of them have shared the court with Edwards for more than one season. One of the guys who can be included in this category is Malik Beasley, who was in the locker room with Ant for the first two seasons of his career. He saw much of Edwards' early development, and he was of course a meaningful player in his own right during his time in Minnesota.

Malik is best known for his knockdown outside shooting ability. A solid scorer off the dribble but even more lethal in catch-and-shoot situations, Beasley lit up the scoreboard for the Timberwolves many times during the two years he played alongside Ant. Bringing the sharpshooter would be far from the worst idea for a team that is in need of more perimeter scoring power.
