Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley talked with reporters on Wednesday, the first time he has done so since re-signing and fighting legal issues.

Beasley is charged with using a rifle to threaten a family who was house hunting in his Plymouth neighborhood. He re-signed with the Wolves in November on a 3-year deal worth around $44 million, with a team option worth over $15 million in the fourth year.

Beasley was charged in October in Hennepin County District Court with threats of violence and drug possession. His wife, Montana Yao, was charged with a felony drug count.

Beasley’s next court hearing is set for December 18. Regardless of how the legal proceedings shake out, he can be suspended by the NBA for some games.

Wednesday’s news conference also included forward Juancho Hernangomez, who re-signed on a 2-year deal worth around $15 million, with a team option worth around $7 million for the third year.

The Wolves begin full team training camp practices in the next few days.
