Report: Muhammad wants out of Minnesota

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Shabazz Muhammad has requested to be traded or waived prior to Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, according to a report from ESPN.

Muhammad is not in the Wolves’ rotation and his representatives recently made the request to Minnesota’s front office. The 25-year-old is averaging 3.7 points in 31 games this season, playing just 9.6 minutes per game.

It was a rough summer for Muhammad, who was expecting to receive lucrative offers in free agency. That never materialized for the former UCLA Bruin, though, and Muhammad was forced to re-sign with the Wolves on a two-year, $3.5 million deal.

Muhammad was the 14th overall pick in the 2013 draft.
