NBA Trade Rumors: Minnesota Timberwolves getting offers for Shabazz Muhammad

The Minnesota Timberwolves haven’t been outright active in trade talks, but they have been actively rumored to be involved in trades. While the talks between the Wolves and Memphis Grizzlies have broken down, it appears that other teams are still trying to get in on some action.

According to Christopher Reina of RealGM, the Wolves are getting calls about rookie guard Shabazz Muhammad.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have received trade calls from multiple teams inquiring about the availability of Shabazz Muhammad, a league source tells RealGM.

Muhammad was the 14th overall pick in last June’s draft, but has played sparingly for the Wolves during his rookie season.

Muhammad was a dark horse trade candidate a few months ago when the Wolves first sent him down to the D-League as everyone smelled trouble in paradise. The Wolves have been reluctant to include themselves in trades, with Flip Saunders even saying that midseason trades for losing teams aren’t mathematically that great.

Still, the Wolves are getting scorched for trading possible rookie of the year Trey Burke to acquire Muhammad and they may move on at the deadline if it lands them a piece that keeps Kevin Love happy.

    Or maybe other teams see a young stud when he develops like the Twolves should. The kid averaged 18ppg as a freshman in one of the toughest conferences in America..Yet he can’t see 5 minutes per game. Tell me how that works..the kid is a rookie he needs playing time and to learn. Instead you give the minutes to Mbah Moute who clearly isn’t comfortable and same can be said of Budinger and Shved. You aren’t getting any special minutes out of any of our wings..its time to get Shabazz some run Adelman

      He looks awful when he plays. I don’t think he’s got it.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo should have been our pick. Flip has never proven he has an eye for talent.
