Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad expelled from NBA's rookie program

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad expelled from NBA's rookie program

While his rookie debut is still three months away, Minnesota Timberwovles top draft pick Shabazz Muhammad has already gotten himself into a little trouble.

According to a report from the USA Today, Muhammad was sent home from of the NBA's Rookie Transition Program for violating a program rule, bringing a female into his hotel room.

Muhammad, who the Wolves took out of UCLA with the No. 14 overall pick, is expected to be fined and return to the four-day program next year. The NBA's rookie program takes place in Florham Park, N.J. and includes a run of seminars that are meant to help rookies acclimate to the league.

"We have been made aware of the circumstances surrounding Shabazz Muhammad's dismissal from the NBA's Rookie Transition Program in New Jersey," Wolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders said in statement. "The team fully supports the NBA's rules and policies in all matters pertaining to this situation and we will abide by the league's action."

Muhammad isn't the first player to run into trouble at the rookie program. Former Wolves forward Michael Beasley, Miami's No. 1 draft pick in 2008, was fined $50,000 when it was found that he was in the same hotel room with fellow rookies Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur, who were both expelled from the program for bringing in women and marijuana.
