The Wolves are trying to convince Shabazz Muhammad to re-sign with them.
The most the Wolves can offer is the minimum, so they are at a disadvantage compared to a number of other teams. Muhammad is 24 years old and could still get better, but his scoring and playing time have decreased in each of the last two seasons. Aug 12 - 10:29 PM

Shabazz Muhammad is drawing interest from six teams according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype.

The six teams are the Hawks, Nets, Bucks, Knicks, Magic and Bulls, so it sounds like the 24-year-old wing still has a strong market. It's also pretty safe to rule out a return to Minnesota after they rescinded their qualifying offer in early July. Muhammad is more of a one-trick pony in fantasy with his scoring ability, so it's hard to see him making a significant impact for standard-league owners anywhere he lands.

Free agent F Shabazz Muhammad is reportedly receiving interest from the Hawks, Nets, Bucks and Knicks.

This report is broad enough that there's no use speculating how Bazz would fit on each team, but it does seem like he'll sign sooner rather than later, especially with cap space having dried up in a hurry.
Jul 12 - 9:13 PM

As expected, the Wolves have rescinded their qualifying offer to Shabazz Muhammad, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Minnesota couldn't afford to have a $4.2 million qualifying offer tying up valuable cap space after trading for Jimmy Butler and agreeing to deal with Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson. They may have also concluded that they wouldn't be able to match incoming offer sheets -- Muhammad has reportedly drawn interest from the Nets.
Jul 2 - 9:09 PM

Shabazz Muhammad's camp is reportedly alerting teams that he'll be an unrestricted free agent upon completion of the Taj Gibson deal.

In order for the Wolves to make the financials work with Gibson, they'll need to renounce their rights to Muhammad, thus making him an unrestricted free agent. So far Muhammad has only been linked to the Nets, but he'll likely receive some more interest around the league once some of the bigger names in free agency come off the board.
Jul 2 - 3:25 PM

The Nets will reportedly pursue Shabazz Muhammad as a restricted free agent this offseason.

Both Minnesota and Brooklyn will have a ton of cap space this offseason, but given Muhammad's skill set, the Timberwolves may let him walk if the Nets come in with a big time offer. Muhammad would provide the Nets with a much-needed scoring punch, so he could potentially have some value in Brooklyn.
Apr 20 - 12:48 PM

Shabazz Muhammad posted 24 points, 11 rebounds and an assist over 32 minutes in Tuesday's 121-107 loss at Golden State.

Muhammad was seeing extended minutes off the bench with the starters dialing it down a bit in a road blowout loss. The 24 points were a season high, but don't expect that type of production on a regular basis. He was averaging just 5.8 points per game over his previous six outings.
Apr 5 - 1:55 AM

Shabazz Muhammad failed to score in 12 minutes vs. the Lakers on Friday, missing all three of his shots from the field with nothing else.

If he's not scoring, he's not helping you. Muhammad was hot in his previous four with 18.5 points per game in that span, but his floor is way too low when his shot isn't falling. It also didn't help that the Wolves used more two-PG lineups. He's strictly a scoring specialist in deeper formats.
Mar 25 - 2:14 AM

Shabazz Muhammad scored 18 points with four rebounds, one steal and two triples vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

He finished 8-of-15 from the field in 24 minutes, and his workload was safe despite the arrival of Omri Casspi. Muhammad is rolling with 18.5 points per game over his last four outings, but he offers very little to fantasy owners other than scoring. He's a low-end pickup with two games remaining for the Wolves this week.
Mar 22 - 2:37 AM

Shabazz Muhammad scored 20 points in 24 minutes vs. New Orleans on Sunday, making 8-of-13 field goals and 3-of-5 free throws with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Muhammad is shooting the ball well lately, at 51.2 percent in the past two weeks, but he's contributing nothing else to support his fantasy value. Prospective owners should also be aware that the Wolves are close to signing Omri Casspi to fill the void left by Nemanja Bjelica (ankle), which could cut into Bazz's minutes.
Mar 19 - 8:41 PM

Shabazz Muhammad scored 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting vs. the Heat on Friday.

Nemanja Bjelica (left foot) won't play again this season, so Muhammad will get a nice bump in minutes off the bench. He played 28 minutes tonight and added two assists and one rebound, and this is coming on the heels of a 21-point effort on Wednesday vs. the Celtics in 31 minutes. He's going to post some empty stat lines outside of the scoring column, so he's just a low-end pickup in deeper formats. After Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans, the Wolves will have a total of six games over a two-week span.
Mar 17 - 11:23 PM

Shabazz Muhammad scored 21 points with three boards, one assist and one block on Wednesday, hitting 7-of-14 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs in 31 minutes vs. the Celtics.

He fell one point shy of his season high, getting a boost in minutes once Nemanja Bjelica went down with an ankle injury. He'll be worth a look for streaming and DFS value with Bjelica looking very iffy for Friday's game vs. the Heat.
Mar 15 - 11:16 PM

Shabazz Muhammad scored 11 points off the bench against the Warriors on Friday, adding eight rebounds and one turnover in 28 minutes.

Coach Tom Thibodeau seems to like Muhammad as a wing with the first unit along with some added output off the bench. He just torched the Warriors in transition today and his length was useful on the defensive end. He also said he likes to play with Ricky Rubio and Thibs should like that two because that duo has a +23.4 net rating in their 55 minutes together since the break. He's really only good for scoring, so just keep an eye on him as a specialist, in DFS or as a stream.
Mar 11 - 12:14 AM

Shabazz Muhammad scored 17 points with six rebounds, no assists and one steal in 26 minutes during his start for Brandon Rush (illness) against the Clippers on Wednesday.

Besides no assists, that's pretty much on par with his averages in his previous starts during his career. It was his first start since January 2015, averaging 15.6 points, 4.9 boards and 2.0 assists in those 13 games. With Lance Stephenson in the mix and Rush likely back soon, there's no need to add Bazz in most leagues.
Mar 9 - 1:29 AM

Shabazz Muhammad will start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

It should be a spot start with Brandon Rush (illness) not playing tonight. Lance Stephenson is active for this game, so he figures to be in the mix, as well. Muhammad would be a risky fantasy play, but he should get some decent minutes.
