Muhammad scored 22 points with six rebounds in 30 minutes in Saturday's preseason win over the Lakers. He's slimmed down to 218 pounds, which he hasn't weighed since high school, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "The weight difference is really helping me up and down the court," he said.

Shabazz Muhammad will re-sign with the Timberwolves, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. There were some rumors floating around that the Lakers were interested in bringing on Muhammad, but ultimately he decided to re-up with the team that drafted him. Muhammad averaged 9.9 points and not much else in 19.4 minutes per contest with the Wolves last season, and he should have a similar workload during his 2017-18 campaign. There's not much here in terms of fantasy hoops.

The Lakers reportedly remain interested in free agent Shabazz Muhammad. We heard late last month that Los Angeles was keeping tabs on Muhammad, who is one of the best players still available on the open market. New Lakers GM Rob Pelinka previously served as Muhammad's agent, so there is a connection. It appears that Muhammad will likely choose between returning to the Timberwolves or heading to Los Angeles. Either way, he won't have much fantasy value heading into next season.

According to Wolves reporter Darren Wolfson, there is "slightly growing optimism" that Minnesota will be able to re-sign Shabazz Muhammad. The Wolves only have 11 players under contract, but barring a roster move, they can only offer a minimum contract. Muhammad has also drawn interest from the Lakers, but they are unlikely to offer him anything more than a one-year deal because they are trying to keep their books clear for free agency in 2018 when LeBron James and Paul George hit the market. If Muhammad re-signs in Minnesota, his fantasy value would be very limited.

Shabazz Muhammad is considering joining the Lakers, according to beat reporter Eric Pincus. General manager Rob Pelinka was his former agent before his new role, so maybe that helps the Lakers sway 'Bazz. This report adds the Lakers are also considering other options to add to their roster. Plus, Muhammad also played his college ball at nearby UCLA, which helped him go 14th in the draft.

Head coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed that the Timberwolves are talking to Shabazz Muhammad about potentially returning to Minnesota. The Wolves currently have only 11 players under contract for next season, which means they have four roster spots to fill. Muhammad, who spent the first four years of his career in Minnesota, is one of the more attractive free agents still on the market. He's averaged 10.8 points, on 47.7 percent shooting, and 3.2 rebounds over the last three seasons. "Bazz has a great relationship with a number of players on the team," said Thibodeau. "I know they would like to have him back. He’s got to make a decision shortly."

The Wolves are trying to convince Shabazz Muhammad to re-sign with them. The most the Wolves can offer is the minimum, so they are at a disadvantage compared to a number of other teams. Muhammad is 24 years old and could still get better, but his scoring and playing time have decreased in each of the last two seasons.

Shabazz Muhammad is drawing interest from six teams according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype. The six teams are the Hawks, Nets, Bucks, Knicks, Magic and Bulls, so it sounds like the 24-year-old wing still has a strong market. It's also pretty safe to rule out a return to Minnesota after they rescinded their qualifying offer in early July. Muhammad is more of a one-trick pony in fantasy with his scoring ability, so it's hard to see him making a significant impact for standard-league owners anywhere he lands.

Free agent F Shabazz Muhammad is reportedly receiving interest from the Hawks, Nets, Bucks and Knicks. This report is broad enough that there's no use speculating how Bazz would fit on each team, but it does seem like he'll sign sooner rather than later, especially with cap space having dried up in a hurry.
