Shabazz Muhammad, the Timberwolves' top draft pick, has been sent home from the NBA Rookie Transition Program for breaking a rule.
Unlike former T-Wolf Michael Beasley in 2008, Muhammad wasn't busted tokin'. Instead, he was sent home for bringing a female guest into his hotel room, the USA Today reports.
[jump] Because the NBA mandates that all rookies complete the Transition Program, Muhammad will have to return next year along with the 2014 draft class.
Hopefully Muhammad's expulsion doesn't turn out to be as ominous as Beasley's (UPDATE: Beasley actually wasn't sent home when he was busted lighting up, but he was fined $50,000). Just yesterday, the once-promising B-Easy was busted for driving while smoking pot (again), and whether he even has an NBA future is now in question. Still, one wishes Muhammad would've had the foresight to realize that if he could've just gone four nights without that sort of company, a long NBA career with many hotel rooms and possible female guests is on his horizon.
