Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley will reportedly serve 120 days in an adult corrections facility once the season is over, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Beasley was sentenced to 120 days at Hennepin County Workhouse on Tuesday as a result of his arrest in October. Beasley was arrested after he reportedly pointed a rifle at a family that approached his home during a parade of homes. Beasley was charged with felony threats of violence after telling the family to "get the f*** off" his property while pointing a gun at them. He was also charged with fifth-degree drug possession after police found nearly two pounds of marijuana on Beasley's property.

Beasley pleaded guilty to the threats of violence charge in December. The drug charge was dismissed at that time. Once Beasley completes his probation, the violence charged will be dropped from a felony to a misdemeanor, according to Charania.

Malik Beasley in midst of breakout season

After years of solid production, Beasley has taken his game to another level this season. Through 24 games, Beasley is averaging a career-high 20.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

A trade to the Timberwolves seemed to unlock Beasley's potential. With the Denver Nuggets, Beasley averaged just 7.4 points per game over four seasons. Upon being traded to the Timberwolves last February, Beasley has averaged 20.6 points per game.

Despite Beasley's breakout, the T-wolves sit at 6-18 — the worst record in the Western Conference.
