Less than a year after agreeing to re-sign with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Shabazz Muhammad wants out.

Muhammad has fallen out of the Timberwolves’ rotation, having played in just 31 games this season. Subsequently, he has privately requested to be moved or waived by the trade deadline, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

When Muhammad rejoined the Timberwolves last September, he had expected a fairly significant role on the team’s bench. Instead, he has averaged less than ten minutes per game and has not played much at all.

Muhammad has a player option for next season, but he obviously isn’t going to exercise that at this point.

Interestingly, Muhammad was reportedly shopped by the Timberwolves a year ago. You have to wonder how much he was ever in Tom Thibodeau’s plans.
