  4. Extra Pass: Minnesota Timberwolves and defining clutch

    Kevin Love, Channing Frye

    The Minnesota Timberwolves just can’t win close games. Trailing the Phoenix Suns by eight points in the fourth quarter Tuesday night, Minnesota exploded for a  24-6 run in a 110-101 win. Yet, the Timberwolves remain 1-12 in games decided by four or fewer points – by far the worst mark in the NBA. If only they…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • One of my personal favorites around the league, Ronny Turiaf was back on…

    What has happened in the Miami Dolphin’s locker room with charges of bullying and over-the-line treatment of rookies has other professional sports leagues running a little scared. We told you the NBA sent out a memo reminding teams to make sure that there is no bullying in their locker rooms, which was to include: “…engaging in…

  7. Timberwolves pick up option on Derrick Williams, now just have to find fit

    Oct 22, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    Derrick Williams is going to stay with the Timberwolves — the team is picking up his option for this season as expected, reports the Associated Press. On the very surface this seems a simple and smart move — he started 56 games for the Wolves last season, averaging 12 points and 5.5 rebounds a game…

    Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic, Ricky Rubio

    Last season: The Timberwolves never had much of a chance to finish better than their 31-51 record, thanks to a rash of injuries to the team’s top players. Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Chase Budinger and Nikola Pekovic all missed substantial time due to injury, rendering the season an unforced failure in the process. Signature highlight…

    Flip Saunders came into the Wolves and team president, decision maker and with a piece of ownership having the goal of making this team a winner. And improving the front office’s relationship with Kevin Love so he doesn’t bolt in a couple years, but frankly a big part of that ties back to winning. Saunders…

  10. Ben McLemore says Shabazz Muhammad getting sent home from NBA’s rookie program was ‘very disappointing’

    Aug 18, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Kings McLemore McCallum Basketball

    As recently as January, UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad was higher on many mock draft boards than was Ben McLemore of Kansas. Things changed in the months leading up to the draft, and for a variety of reasons, McLemore ended up going seven spots higher when all was said and done. The two were linked throughout last season…

  11. Flip Saunders says if T’Wolves send Shabazz Muhammad to D-League, it wouldn’t be meant as a punishment

    Aug 12, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Shabazz Muhammad

    Shabazz Muhammad was sent home from the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program for a simple rules violation, and it didn’t appear to go over well with Timberwolves president Flip Saunders. Speaking in a radio interview on Friday, Saunders said that Muhammad would either “learn the rules and learn to abide by things with the big boys…

  12. NBA’s Rookie Transition Program was nothing new for Glen Rice Jr.

    NBA: NBA Draft Combine

    The NBA’s Rookie Transition Program garnered headlines last week when Minnesota Timberwolves’ lottery pick Shabazz Muhammad was sent home and, eventually, was threatened with being sent to the NBA Development League if he didn’t start to shape up. Washington Wizards’ second-round pick had a much different experience at the RTP, however — though he’s heard most…

  13. Shabazz Muhammad could be headed to D-League if he doesn’t shape up

    Aug 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Shabazz Muhammad

    Some believed the Minnesota Timberwolves got a steal when they selected Shabazz Muhammad with the last pick in this year’s lottery. The former top prospect has some off-court problems, sure, but most believed he’d be fine as long as he was able to keep his nose clean at the next level. That unfortunately hasn’t been…

  14. Matt Barnes says Shabazz Muhammad getting sent home from NBA’s Rookie Transition Program is ‘BS’

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Timberwolves rookie Shabazz Muhammad was sent home early from the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program for a blatant violation of the event’s rules. The infraction itself wasn’t at all that serious; Muhammad apparently had a female guest in his room hours after being informed that it wasn’t allowed. But rules are rules, and as a rookie…

  15. Timberwolves’ Shabazz Muhammad kicked out of NBA’s Rookie Transition Program

    NBA: Summer League-Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns

    Shabazz Muhammad has already endured his fair share of controversy for a rookie that has yet to play in an NBA game. The controversy doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon, however, as the Minnesota Timberwolves’ first-round pick got into some trouble at the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program this weekend. Muhammad was sent home Tuesday…

    Thursday and Friday in Chicago is the NBA Draft Combine, where 60 invited players — guys likely or at least in the mix to be drafted — get measured, tested, go through interviews with teams, and occasionally run drills.

    Apr 16, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT

    Shabazz Muhammad

    While his stock has fallen in the last few months — he’s gone from a guy considered in the top three to a guy DraftExpress has going No. 9 overall right now — this was still expected. UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad has declared for the NBA draft, the school announced on Tuesday. “I am so thankful…
