Shabazz Muhammad's NBA slate is clean no more. According to USA Today Sports, the Minnesota Timberwolves' top rookie draft pick was sent home from the league's Rookie Transition Program, allegedly bringing a female guest into his Florham Park, N.J., hotel room Tuesday evening. Just hours before, players had been explained the program's rules, which include no guests unless authorized by administrators. Muhammad was immediately kicked out of the four-day event. He'll be fined and have to complete the seminar next summer with the 2014 draft class. Coming in with a less-than-ideal reputation, the draft's No. 14 overall pick appeared to keep his nose out of trouble during his first weeks of professional basketball. He addressed questions about his falsified age and rap as a selfish player at UCLA with mostly the right words, and a trip to his hometown of Las Vegas for NBA Summer League play went off without a hitch. But 41 days after Minnesota landed him in a draft-and-trade deal, he's already garnered discipline from the league. Muhammad's not the first rookie program attendee to be expelled. In 2008, Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur were sent home and fined 20,000 each for having women and marijuana in their room. Michael Beasley later admitted he was there, too, and drew a 50,000 fine.
