Shabazz Muhammad Kicked Out of NBA Rookie Program After Woman Visits His Hotel Room

Wolves rookie Muhammad starts pro career with misstep

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad was sent home from the NBA’s annual Rookie Transition Program for violating one very clear rule.

Muhammad was sent packing after bringing a female companion to his hotel room Tuesday night. The rule states that players are required to get approval for guests from program officials. In addition to being sent home, Muhammad will be fined for the violation and will have to go through the program again next summer.

“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,” Timberwolves president Flip Saunders said in a statement, according to the Star-Tribune.

Muhammad was the 14th overall draft pick by the Timberwolves in June after one season at UCLA.

The rookie program is a four-day seminar that is held to help teach young players about making the transition from college or overseas, to the NBA.

    There are rules to follow and consequences for those rules that are not followed. Just wait until you complete the NBA program, and you can have all the nookie you desire. Patience is a virtue. Abide by it. And wear protection once you decide this is what you want to do.
