Minnesota Timberwolves guard Shabazz Muhammad brings guest to his hotel room and in consequence is sent home from the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program.
In addition, online sports betting experts confirmed that Muhammad has also been fined.
The four-day program, held in Florham Park, N.J., helps rookie NBA players get anointed into the league through a series of seminars, instructions and guest speakers. Close to 50 rookies or players are participating in the program, which ends tomorrow.
According to what YouWager has learned, just hours before the 20 year-old athlete was sent home, players were given rules for the program and one of those rules stated there were to be no guests unless approved by administrators.
Muhammad has the chance to come back next year to complete the program.
However, this is not the first incident in the program. Five years ago, Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur were expelled after it was discovered that women and marijuana were in their room. Both basketball players were fined $20,000. Michael Beasley, who was arrested Tuesday on a marijuana charge, also admitted he was in Chalmers and Arthur’s room and was fined $50,000.
