The Timberwolves reached a buyout agreement with forward Shabazz Muhammad, sources told the Pioneer Press on Thursday night. Muhammad has wanted out of Minnesota for the last couple months, because this season hasn’t gone as he had planned when he re-signed with the Wolves on a one-year deal this summer. Muhammad, whom Minnesota drafted with the No. 14 pick in the 2013 NBA draft, was supposed to be the third wing Minnesota needed before Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler, but was buried on the end of the bench after a rough start to the season. He hasn’t appeared in 32 games this season, a steep decline from his role a year ago. Muhammad could be seen working on his game well after each practice’s conclusion, but an increase in playing time was nowhere in sight.
