Wolves Interested In Shabazz Muhammad Reunion

The Wolves renounced the rights to Shabazz Muhammad earlier this summer, something that allowed the UCLA product to become an unrestricted free agent. He hasn’t yet found a home and with the market settling, Minnesota would like to bring him back, according to Darren Wolfson of ESPN.com (Twitter link).

The team only has the ability to offer him a minimum salary slot after making several additions this offseason. Minnesota exhausted its cap space by signing Taj Gibson and Jeff Teague and it used its mid-level exception to ink Jamal Crawford. Taking a minimum salary agreement would be disappointing for the young swingman, as he was certainly expecting better offers. He’s one of the best remaining wings remaining on the market, as I recently outlined.

Muhammad drew interest from several teams toward the beginning of free agency. The Hawks, Nets, Bucks, and Knicks all eyed the 24-year-old in July, though it’s unclear if any of those teams still have an interest in him now.

  1. Really sad that he won’t have the opportunity to go anywhere else. Very good young player and could potentially become a good 6th man or decent starter.

    The biggest problem is Muhammad’s assist numbers. He only averaged .4 a game this season and .6 for his career. You need guys that play the 2/3 that can help your PG by distributing the ball.

    He would be good for the bench but man I would like to see him develop on a team like New York.

    As a wolves fan this would be an outstanding move if the wolves were to be able to get him to come back. Maybe not the best move for his development though as I think he has the potential to be a starter or at least very good 6th man. If the wolves do get him they would still have Bird rights for next year and be able to go over cap to resign him at that point

    As a wolves fan it would be a great move to get him back for min. Would get Bird rights back as well and wolves would be able to go over cap to sign him next year. Maybe not great for his development as I think he has potential to be a starter or very good 6th man.

    I’d be shocked if Muhammad ended up being a very good 6th man. He’s too selfish a player – as someone already mentioned he has one of the all-time worst assist rates. He can be a good rebounder and scorer but he took a big step back last year. Totally worth a minimum contract though.

    The fact that teams aren’t throwing money at him restores hope for the NBA. He’s worth nothing more than a minimum contract.
