Still a free agent? The player who was drafted ahead of Giannis Antetokounmpo is available

On August 20, Shabazz Muhammad, who was the 14th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft, is a free agent available for any team in the league to sign.

Back in July, Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reported that Muhammad was to train for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Scotto on July 22: “The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to bring in several veteran free agents for practices, including former 2013 lottery pick Shabazz Muhammad, league sources told HoopsHype. Muhammad recently worked for the Sacramento Kings during the Las Vegas Summer League.”

Muhammad last played in the NBA in 2018 for the Milwaukee Bucks and Minnesota Timberwolves.

He started his NBA career with Minnesota and played with the franchise for a game of five seasons before joining the Bucks.

His career averages are 9.0 points and 2.8 rebounds per game in 278 regular season games.

He also appeared in four playoff games for the Bucks in the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

Coming out of UCLA, he had been a highly touted prospect.

In fact, he was actually drafted on the pick ahead of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who finished 15th overall in that draft.

He’s been out of the NBA for four seasons, but he’s still only 29.

At this point, he would more than likely be available for a contract that is not guaranteed or the veteran’s minimum.

Therefore, he is a name to watch as the season draws closer and training camps begin around the NBA.
