Wolves trying to convince Muhammad to return

Shabazz Muhammad is returning to the Wolves, per ESPN.

The Minnesota Timberwolves renounced the rights to Shabazz Muhammad in July, making the versatile forward a free agent for the first time in his career.

Muhammad, though, has yet to be picked up by a new team.

The Undefeated previously reported that the Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks were expected to pursue Muhammad, but as of now, no talks have emerged.

The Wolves are reportedly trying to convince Muhammad to come back for the minimum, according to ESPN 1500.

It would surely be a humbling experience for Muhammad, who was expecting to command good money on the open market.

In four years with Minnesota, Muhammad averaged 9.7 points while shooting 47.6 percent from the field and 32.3 percent from three.

It’s hard to envision Muhammad going back to the Wolves since his role would be fairly limited there. The former UCLA Bruin might need to lower his asking price, though, since he hasn’t garnered much interest.
