Shabazz Muhammad released by Bucks
If Shabazz Muhammad is going to play in the NBA this season, he will be doing so for his third different team in the past year.
On Thursday, the Milwaukee Bucks announced that they are waiving Muhammad, who had been with the team on a non-guaranteed contract.
The Milwaukee Bucks have waived wing Shabazz Muhammad. Muhammad was on a fully non-guaranteed Summer Contract. so no cap hit for the Bucks.

Muhammad spent the first four-plus seasons of his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves, but he was never able to carve out significant playing time once Tom Thibodeau took over. He eventually requested a trade last year and reached a contract buyout with Minnesota.
While he is still just 25, Muhammad has never really lived up to his potential. He looked a bit better while averaging 8.5 points with the Bucks after signing with them midway through last season, but obviously he did not do enough to make the final roster.
