Some believed the Minnesota Timberwolves got a steal when they selected Shabazz Muhammad with the last pick in this year’s lottery. The former top prospect has some off-court problems sure but most believed he’d be fine as long as he was able to keep his nose clean at the next level.

That unfortunately hasn’t been the case for Muhammad however. The 20-year-old UCLA product struggled at the NBA Summer League for the Timberwolves and didn’t help himself by being the only player kicked out of this year’s NBA Rookie Transition Program. The violation was minor — he reportedly had a female guest in his room that wasn’t pre-approved by the faculty — but it was just the latest in what’s been a tough year for the former Bruin.

And if it doesn’t get better soon things could get worse: New general manager Flip Saunders told the Star Tribune’s Jerry Zgoda that a trip to the D-League could serve as Muhammad’s punishment if he doesn’t get his act together.
