Scores quite a bit. Rebounds a little bit. Still never, ever passes. Considering Shabazz Muhammad shot attempts are increasingly predictable to the point of being inevitable, his .566% true shooting percentage of the past campaign (a career high) is a decent return. In posting (mostly), shooting (somewhat), running the court (fairly well) and driving the ball (he’d rather just hoist up a jumper), there is at least some offensive diversification there. But in never passing, not doing anything of note defensively, and not being a good outside shooter, it is a limited package when it needn’t be.

Player Plan: Heading into restricted free agency, assuming a qualifying offer is coming. Muhammad’s future on this team, or indeed any team, is uncertain. He has NBA talent, but he jars with the way the NBA is headed, and he is far from reliable in his awkward role. It mightn’t be the worst idea for him or the team if he were to take the one year, $4,187,589 qualifying offer.
