Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Posted by: Kent Youngblood under Wolves news Updated: August 7, 2013 - 3:23 PM

USA Today, citing an unnamed source, reported that Wolves rookie Shabazz Muhammad was sent home from the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program for violating a rule by bringing a female guest to his hotel room.

The Wolves confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that Muhammad had been sent home from the program. President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders released this statement:

"We have been made aware of the circumstances surrounding Shabazz Muhammad’s dismissal from the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program in New Jersey. The team fully supports the NBA’s rules and policies in all matters pertaining to this situation and we will abide by the league's action."

Muhammad, the 14th player taken in the 2013 draft, will also be fined, according to the report. And will have to return to complete the four-day program next season. 

Here is the USA Today report.
