Shabazz Muhammad agreed to a contract buyout with Timberwolves on Thursday, NBA sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The move will give Muhammad a chance to sign with a team that will give him more playing time than he got in Minnesota this season.
Muhammad, who was shipped to Minnesota after being the 14th-overall pick by Utah in 2013, was averaging only 9.4 minutes in 32 games this season. The shooting guard averaged a career-low 3.8 points and 1.4 rebounds after averaging 9.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in 19.4 minutes in 78 games last season.
Muhammad, 25, had asked the Wolves to move him before the trade deadline last month but that did not happen and Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau continued to rarely use the veteran. Muhammad re-signed with the Wolves last offseason, getting a two-year deal with a player option.
