The NBA regular season is right around the corner as training camps are set to begin in a couple of weeks. There have been numerous changes this offseason in the NBA, and we can only wait and see to see how it affects the game next season.

Shabazz Muhammad re-signs with Minnesota

Shabazz Muhammad was reportedly going to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers a couple of weeks ago. But that remains to be a rumor as the Minnesota Timberwolves are going to hold on to Shabazz Muhammad. Adrian Wojnarowski of NBA ESPN has reported that Shabazz Muhammad has agreed to re-sign with the Minnesota Timberwolves on a one-year veterans minimum deal worth 1.6 million dollars.

This move will restore his bird rights with Minnesota for next offseason. The Timberwolves did not give Muhammad the qualifying offer in order to increase cap space but since the NBA market has been soft for Muhammad he now decides to stay with Minnesota.

Muhammad has stayed with the Minnesota Timberwolves in his entire four year NBA career, ever since he was drafted with the 14th overall pick by the Utah Jazz but was directly traded to the Timberwolves. He has improved considerably well the past few years, in his rookie season, he only averaged 3.9 points, 0.2 steals, 0.2 assists, and 1.4 rebounds while shooting 46 percent from the field in only 7.8 minutes per game. But last year he had a solid and decent season when he averaged 9.9 points, 0.1 blocks, 0.3 steals, 0.4 assists, and 2.8 rebounds while shooting 48.2 percent from the field, 33.6 percent from beyond the arc, and 77.2 percent from the free throw line.

This move by the Minnesota Timberwolves will add more depth to their forward position, Muhammad will likely play behind either Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler. The Minnesota Timberwolves have made a huge leap this offseason from acquiring Jimmy Butler to also signing Jeff Teague.

On paper they look very scary even in the NBA western conference, we can only now wait if they can co-exist in the court next season.

Utah Jazz sign Wolters to a two-way contract

Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune has reported that the Utah Jazz has signed Nate Wolters to a two-way NBA contract this offseason. Wolters played last season for the KK Crvena Zvezda last year where he averaged 2.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 8.1 points in 17.1 minutes.

Wolters entered the NBA in the offseason of 2013 where he was drafted by the Washington Wizards with the 38th overall pick, on the same night he was traded to the Philadephia 76ers, and on the next day, he would again be traded to the Milwaukee Bucks. He played a season and a half in Milwaukee before being traded to the New Orleans Pelicans. Now, after playing a year overseas, he looks to make another NBA run in his career with the Utah Jazz.
