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.
Mar 8 - 7:20 PM

Shabazz Muhammad scored 10 points in 15 minutes off the bench in Monday's 102-88 win against the Kings.

Muhammad has scored 10 or more points in nine of his 12 games in the month of February, averaging 11.8 points per game. The forward's average for points in the best of any month so far this season. His playing time has actually tailed off slightly as the month has gone on, but he remains fairly productive. Muhammad is a very nice depth player in leagues of 12 or more teams.
Feb 28 - 1:14 AM

The Wolves are determined to move Shabazz Muhammad according to TNT reporter David Aldridge.

The Wolves still have their eyes on a playoff push and Ricky Rubio and Muhammad are the most likely to be moved. Muhammad is a pure scorer with very little upside in standard fantasy leagues, so he doesn't have much stash appeal. He's averaging 9.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.8 3-pointers in 19.6 minutes this season and he's been linked to the Rockets and Wizards so far.
Feb 23 - 11:24 AM

Shabazz Muhammad is another player on Houston's radar.

This report adds that it doesn't sound like anything is close. Muhammad's name has popped up before with some rumors tied to the Suns and he could be dealt as coach Tom Thibodeau tries to mold the team in his image. He doesn't have much fantasy value regardless.
Feb 22 - 6:38 PM

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Wizards have expressed interest in Shabazz Muhammad.

The Wizards were in hot pursuit of Lou Williams, but he was just traded to the Rockets. The Wizards are looking to upgrade their bench at the deadline and Muhammad has been shopped by the Wolves in the past. The swingman would have a limited role off the bench behind Otto Porter if he was moved to Washington, so there's no stash appeal here. The 24-year-old wing is averaging 9.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.8 3-pointers in 19.6 minutes for the Wolves this season.
Feb 21 - 8:17 PM

Shabazz Muhammad made 2-of-8 from the field for five points with two rebounds in 22 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

When 'Bazz isn't scoring, his stat line is going to look really ugly. He looks like the primary beneficiary from the Zach LaVine (knee) injury, but the lack of non-scoring stats makes him more of a specialist or someone for points leagues.
