USA Today reports that Shabazz Muhammad was sent home from the NBA's annual rookie transition program for breaking the rule against having unauthorized guests in his room. Muhammad apparently brought a woman back to his room.

He will be fined in addition to his expulsion from the program.

On the one hand: come on Shabazz Muhammad. They just told you the rules. Follow 'em, will ya?

On the other hand: eh. I can't get too worked up about this. Stuff happens. He didn't commit a crime.

You might remember that Mario Chalmers, Darrell Arthur and Michael Beasley got sent home and fined for having women and weed in their rooms at the 2008 program. I doubt it has much correlation with future problems.

Not a great start for the Wolves' lottery pick, though.

Any thoughts?
