And-Ones: Muhammad, Franchise Players, Sims

Free agent forward Shabazz Muhammad remains one of the most noteworthy names on the open market, and with still no deal in hand, the four-year veteran is looking to change agents, according to Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News (Twitter link). If that sounds familiar, it’s because Muhammad just hired a new agent in the spring — the former Rob Pelinka client made the move to Rich Paul after Pelinka landed with the Lakers as their new GM.

As Wolfson adds in a separate tweet, at least six teams have checked in on Muhammad, but the former first-round pick entered free agency hoping to get a mid-level type deal, perhaps similar to what Patrick Patterson received from the Thunder (three years, $16MM+). At this point in the offseason, Muhammad will be hard-pressed to find more than a minimum salary deal, which explains why he’s not necessarily thrilled with Paul’s work.

Here are a few more odds and ends from around the league:

    Seams like maybe the jazz should try to pick him up. There a little short handed.

    I’ve been following that re draft thing all week. Love the thinking behind it. Bleacher Report puts some great pieces together.

  3. Should’ve been signed by now. Sound like a broken record but a guy with his game and potential should be on a roster. He can be a high end sixth man to a low end starter.
