Wolves bring back Hummel with one-year, guaranteed contract

MINNEAPOLIS -- On his own, Robbie Hummel isn't the answer. But he'll have an opportunity to become part of it. No proposed trade for disenchanted power forward Kevin Love is going to net the Timberwolves equal return -- these forced deals involving superstars rarely do.

But when he was on the floor, the swingman from UCLA was productive -- albeit a good chunk of his game repetitions came during garbage time. Per 48 minutes, Muhammad averaged 23.7 points and 8.8 boards. His slashing, at-times frenzied style of play didn&...

Room for Improvement: Shabazz Muhammad

Taken with the 14th and final lottery pick of the 2013 Draft, Shabazz Muhammad rarely got off the bench during his rookie year. What could he do to change that?
