Shabazz Muhammad has locked in a deal to play for Chinese CBA club, the Shenzen Leopards.
Muhammad was initially linked to the Shanxi Brave Dragons, but ultimately inked a deal with the Leopards. He has a shot at making a splash in the Chinese League as a high-volume scorer for his team.

Shabazz Muhammad has agreed to a one-year deal with the Shaan Xi Wolves.
Muhammad made it to Milwaukee's training camp last year but was cut before the season, and it's looking increasingly likely that his NBA days are over.

Shabazz Muhammad to sign a one-year deal in China with the Shanxi Brave Dragons.
It didn't take Muhammad long to find work days after being cut by the Bucks. The five-year NBA veteran is an efficient scorer with a 47.3 career field goal percentage and an average of 9.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 17.2 minutes. He may eventually make a return since he is still only 25 years old.

The Bucks have waived Shabazz Muhammad.
Our last blurb on Muhammad was a report that he'd have to outplay the Bucks' training camp guys to earn a spot and evidently he couldn't do that. He'll float around as a potential scorer off the bench but might need to play most of his year in a league that isn't the NBA.

According to Matt Velasquez of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Shabazz Muhammad will have to prove he deserves the final roster spot over another member of the Bucks' training-camp roster or free agent.
Milwaukee's roster currently includes 14 players on guaranteed contracts while Tyler Zeller remains with the team on a non-guaranteed deal. Additionally, Travis Trice, Brandon McCoy and Jordan Barnett have all signed training-camp contracts and Muhammad will have to beat all of them in order to make it to the team’s final roster. He joined the Bucks on March 4th after being let go by the Wolves and had a limited but noticeable impact during 11 regular-season appearances, providing instant offense off the bench to the tune of 8.5 points in 10.6 minutes per contest while shooting 55 percent from the field. The veteran guard also had strong contributions off the bench on Games 2 and 5 against the Celtics, scoring 11 points in both games while playing 12 and 10 minutes, respectively.

Shabazz Muhammad has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Bucks.
Muhammad split his 43 games between the Wolves and Bucks last season but was almost entirely irrelevant in both stints. If he makes the final roster the Bucks can view him as some scoring punch but they're deeper than they were last season so he's going to be on the very end of the bench.

Shabazz Muhammad was inactive for Wednesday's season finale against the Sixers.
Muhammad has a few nice scoring games since joining the Bucks but did not crack the top-400 this season with just 9.7 mpg across 40 contests.

Shabazz Muhammad (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Sixers.
Muhammad played 24 minutes in a blowout victory over the Magic on Monday and dropped 22 points and eight boards. Up until that point he hasn't been a regular part of the rotation and has averaged 11.5 minutes per game over his last nine. Safe to say this was just an aberration against a terrible team and he'll be lucky if he cracks the rotation tonight against the Sixers. The Bucks will probably face the Sixers in the first round of the playoffs if they win or the Heat and Wizards lose.

Shabazz Muhammad wound up playing on Monday after being listed as questionable, leading the Bucks with 22 points on 7-for-12 from the field in just 24 minutes off the bench.
Bazz added eight rebounds and a three while hitting all seven of his free throws. The Bucks are still battling for seeding and aren't likely to rest anyone in Wednesday's finale but Muhammad would make for a nice stream if they did. Other than that, you can count this as a one-off performance.

Shabazz Muhammad (sprained right ankle) is questionable to play on Monday night.
Muhammad had a few nice games after joining the Bucks but hasn't been in the rotation of late. Fantasy owners can look for production elsewhere.

Shabazz Muhammad (right ankle sprain) will be out against the Knicks on Saturday.
Muhammad's playing time has been very sporadic so him not playing has little fantasy implication. Always a threat to score when on the court, he is averaging 7.2 points and 2.3 rebounds in 9.3 minutes in 10 games for the Bucks this season.

Shabazz Muhammad played 10 minutes in Sunday's home win and scored eight points with four rebounds.
Muhammad surprisingly led the Bucks in scoring on Friday, rising from the ashes to score 21 in a surprisingly competitive game. It looks like they might actually give him some playing time here, so if you need points in a very deep league down the stretch he's at least in the conversation.

Shabazz Muhammad had his biggest game of the season on Friday against the Bulls, scoring 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 20 minutes off the bench.
Muhammad won’t be anywhere near this productive on most nights and even with Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) he’s a risky deployment at best for season-long owners. Tony Snell scored 18 points on 6-of-6 shooting with four threes and no other stats in 22 minutes, and Jason Terry got dusted off with 30 minutes, 10 points, two boards, two assists and three treys as the Bucks bench helped seal the win.

Khris Middleton is a late addition to the Bucks injury report and is now a game-time decision on Monday with a case of right knee soreness.
If Middleton sits, the Bucks have a few options to go with in the starting five. If they move Giannis over to the three they could start Jabari Parker, which is probably the best route for fantasy purposes. Alternatively, they could go small and plug Jason Terry or Sterling Brown back into the starting lineup. If the Bucks don’t want to fiddle with anyone’s positions they could call on newcomer Shabazz Muhammad. It’s generally a situation to avoid unless you’re invested in Parker, and hopefully this doesn’t become a lingering issue with Middleton.
