Beasley attended Saint Francis School. As a senior, he averaged 22.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 0.6 blocks, earning the Class 1A Player of the Year of the state of Georgia and an All-State Class A First Team.
As a freshman at Florida State in 2015–16, Beasley averaged 15.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 29.8 minutes per game over 34 games. He was subsequently named to the Atlantic Coast Conference's all-freshman team, and ranked eighth in the conference in free throw percentage (.813) and 10th in field-goal percentage (.471).
On March 21, 2016, Beasley declared for the NBA draft, forgoing his final three years of college eligibility.
Following the conclusion of the 2015–16 season, Beasley had surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right leg. Because of this, he did not participate in pre-draft workouts. Despite having medical concerns entering the 2016 NBA draft, Beasley was selected with the 19th overall pick by the Denver Nuggets. On August 9, 2016, he signed his rookie scale contract with the Nuggets. Beasley appeared in just two of the Nuggets' first seven games of the season, and managed under eight minutes of action and failed to score in those two games. He had a breakthrough game on November 10, scoring 12 points in 15 minutes off the bench in a 125–101 loss to the Golden State Warriors. During his rookie season, Beasley has had multiple assignments with the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League, pursuant to the flexible assignment rule.
He is the son of Michael and Deena Beasley. His father played professional basketball in Chile, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
