Shandong forward Michael Beasley, the NBA's No. 2 draft pick in 2008, won the Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award of the 2015-16 league of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) here on Monday.

Since the 2012-13 season, CBA awarded two MVP trophies to one local player and one foreigner respectively.

Chosen by 57 representatives from media, players were awarded five points for each first-place vote, three points for each second-place vote and one point for each third-place vote.

In 37 games, Beasley averaged 31.7 points and 13.2 rebounds for Shandong, who was placed fifth in regular season. His total of 193 points overshadowed Lester Hudson's 133.

He also grabbed the MVP award in this season's All-Star weekend.

For the Chinese players, Guangdong's Yi Jianlian saw his fourth straight MVP trophy with an average of 26.7 points and 9.2 rebounds in 38 games. He ranked first among the local players in points per game.
