10:47 PM ET 06.15 | Looking for help scoring the basketball, the Minnesota Timberwolves are set to bring in one of the best scorers in this year's draft for a work out. UCLA's Shabazz Muhammad highlights a six man work out Sunday afternoon. Muhammad came in to the college basketball season as one of the top two or three prospects in the country. His draft stock took a hit after an up and down season, controversy surrounding his age and father, as well as questions about his skill set. Still, he's a projected lottery pick and could be the wing scoring the Timberwolves are looking for. Also included in Sunday's workout is Kentucky's Archie Goodwin, Long Beach State's James Ennis, Minnesota Gophers forward Rodney Williams, Delaware's Jamelle Hagins and Idaho center Kyle Barone. Last year, the Timberwolves signed Brandon Roy to start next to Ricky Rubio in the backcourt. When injuries derailed his comeback attempt, Minnesota turned to a combo of Luke Ridnour and J.J. Barea to fill in at shooting guard.

If he falls down from top 6, he could be a big pick up for some playoff team.

He has crazy offensive skills, is a decent enough scorer, suspect defense, but his upside says he might develop into something pretty good.

That being said........The boy is a jackass, did anybody see how he reacted after his teammate hit that one game winner??? The whole team was excited and celebrating his dumb**** was pouting.

He needs an Aaron Rodger type draft night where he sits and waits and waits, perhaps even a Geno Smith type draft where he doesn't get drafter til the next day but the NBA does it all in 2 rounds so i hope he falls into the early 2nd round just so he can learn some HUMILITY!!!!
