The Minnesota Timberwolves have finally re-signed free agent forward Shabazz Muhammad to a deal worth $1.6 million over one year.

Shabazz Muhammad played for the Minnesota Timberwolves over the past four NBA seasons. He played in 78 games last season and averaged 9.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.1 blocks per game while shooting 48.2 percent from the field, 33.8 percent from three, and 77.4 percent from the free throw line.

Muhammad was a key component to what the Timberwolves were able to do last season. He played off the bench as a backup to rising star Andrew Wiggins.

Minnesota's offseason moves

The Minnesota Timberwolves had a pretty good offseason. They have added major pieces to the young core of former number one picks and Rookie of the Year awardees Karl Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins that they already had.

They made a major overhaul in their backcourt. They sent starting point guard Ricky Rubio to the Utah Jazz in exchange for a protected future first-round draft pick from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Timberwolves then signed veteran point guard Jeff Teague to $57 million over three years. Teague is a major upgrade to Rubio who had struggled at times to produce from three point territory.

Minnesota also added All-Star forward Jimmy Butler whom they got from a trade with the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and the seventh overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft.

Jimmy Butler will surely help the Timberwolves finish off games which they were unable to do several times in the past NBA season.

Minnesota Timberwolves adding more depth

Prior to the signing of Shabazz Muhammad, the Minnesota Timberwolves have made some good moves to add to their depth.

The Timberwolves were also able to sign defensive big man Taj Gibson to a $28 million over two years deal.

This trade surely added depth to the Timberwolves’ bench. This signing gives the Timberwolves’ coaching staff more flexibility in the big men rotation.

They have also added three-time Sixth Man of the Year awardee Jamal Crawford. Crawford is a proven scorer and offensive spark plug off the bench, and he averaged 12.3 points, 1.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.2 blocks while playing for the Los Angeles Clippers last NBA season.

Shabazz Muhammad's signing surely added more depth to the Timberwolves' lineup. Muhammad together with Jamal Crawford, Andrew Wiggins, and Jimmy Butler, will surely be a good wing rotation that would help the Timberwolves move forward in their campaign this coming NBA season.
