Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, multiple teams have contacted the Minnesota Timberwolves with interest in third-year swingman Shabazz Muhammad.
While it's unclear what teams are interested in Muhammad, the Wolves have no interest in moving the 23-year-old Shabazz.
The Timberwolves do have a number of wings on the roster: Andrew Wiggins, Tayshaun Prince, Kevin Martin, Damjan Rudez, Zach LaVine and Nemanja Bjelica.
It is more than likely that the Wolves would be willing to move a player like Kevin Martin at some point this season--especially if it nets them a young player to add to their core, or a veteran that better fits with this team moving forward.
As Muhammad continues to prove his worth, it is highly likely that his role continues to increase for this young team. It is clear that he is seen as an integral part of this young core that features Andrew Wiggins & Karl-Anthony Towns at the forefront. Muhammad is part of that second tier with LaVine and Gorgui Dieng as key pieces moving forward.
Shabazz, the 14th overall pick in the 2013 Draft, is under contract for just under $2.1 million for this season and just over $3million next season. He also has a qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season for roughly $4million.
