Shooting guard Shabazz Muhammad has agreed to a buyout with the Minnesota Timberwolves and will sign with the Milwaukee Bucks upon clearing waivers, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
By agreeing to a buyout before midnight, Muhammad will be eligible for the Bucks’ playoff roster. Thursday marked the final day in which that could still be the case for players whose contracts were bought out.
Muhammad. 25, signed a two-year deal with the Timberwolves during the summer, when he received little interest as a free agent. Aside from the Wolves, only the New Orleans Pelicans were rumored to be considering him in the offseason.
The former lottery pick (No. 14 overall in 2013) has mostly been a disappointment under Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau. This season, Muhummad has appeared in just 32 games and is averaging 3.8 points.
The Bucks waived shooting guard Sean Kilpatrick to make room for Muhummad, Yahoo Sports reported.
