07:13 AM ET 09.19 | Soon, just about the whole gang -- Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic, Alexey Shved and J.J. Barea -- will be in town for the T- Wolves, and Flip Saunders, for one, is optimistic. [Saunders] said rookie Shabazz Muhammad has lost weight since the Vegas Summer League in July and said it's the best shape he's seen him in all year. For what it's worth, he also said Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng have "made a lot of progress" since summer. They've been working out daily with new player development coach Bobby Jackson. Saunders didn't go to Slovenia for Eurobasket, but scout Zarko Durisic has been there and just got back a few days ago. Look for player liaison Calvin Booth to join assistant coach Jack Sikma in working with the big men during the preseason.

If you're a rookie, how do you even put yourself into a situation of being over weight, in the first place?

Too bad his first impression was horrible. Bringing a lady back to his room at the rookie orientation was just plain stupid.

He was advised of the terms and restrictions when starting camp and chose to ignore them?
