Bazz Muhammad – back when he went by Shabazz Muhammad – had his qualifying offer pulled by the Timberwolves then re-signed on a minimum contract last summer. If he’d been more proactive the prior offseason, he apparently would have been far better off. Zach Harper of FanRag Sports: He turned down a four-year, $40 million extension before the 2016-17 season. Sources say Muhammad believed a strong year plus a crazy flow of free-agency money would lead to him commanding as much as $20 million per season in his next deal. This is a consequence not having cap smoothing in 2016, when the salary cap skyrocketed under new national TV deals.
