07:15 AM ET 08.08 | Minnesota Timberwolves rookie guard Shabazz Muhammad, the No. 14 overall pick in the draft, has a new negative headline for his file. [Muhammad] was sent home from the NBA's Rookie Transition Program for violating a rule and bringing a female guest into his hotel room Tuesday evening, a person familiar with situation told USA TODAY Sports. The person requested anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the situation. Muhammad, who also will be fined, was here for the four-day program which helps rookies transition into the league through a series of seminars, instructions and guest speakers. Nearly 50 rookies or players are participating in the program, which ends Friday. Just hours before Muhammad was sent home, players were given the rules for the program.

All the makings of a Ron Artest ver 2.0.

I'll guarantee, this dude will never learn. Getting caught or being reprimanded means nothing to him.

lol another quality draft pick brought to you by the Minnesota timber puppies.

Did you know they opened a Timberwolf hunting season in northern MN? If I saw any of the players I'd be temped to shoot..

Can't be wasting those precious bodily fluids while transitioning, Bro.

Maybe.

But when these players come to the orientation, they are presented with the rules and guidelines which they agree (by signature) to abide by.

So what happens the very first night that he's there? He makes the conscious decision to break the rules.

This kid has had 'issues' for several years......and my bet is that he'll have 'issues' through most (if not all) his NBA career.
