Shabazz Muhammad Kicked Out of NBA Rookie Transition Program

by August 07, 2013

According to USA Today, Minnesota Timberwolves rookie guard Shabazz Muhammad was sent home from the League’s Rookie Transition Program for bringing a female guest into his hotel room Tuesday night: “Muhammad, who also will be fined, was here for the four-day program which helps rookies transition into the league through a series of seminars, instructions and guest speakers. Nearly 50 rookies or players are participating in the program which ends Friday. Just hours before Muhammad was sent home, players were given the rules for the program, which included no guests unless approved by program administrators. Muhammad, the No. 14 pick in the draft, will have to return next summer and complete the program with the 2014 draft class and others who have not yet attended.”
