An injury-plagued offseason for Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman slowed him down, but now he has found a home professionally.

The former Michigan guard signed a contract with the Canton Charge of the NBA’s developmental league (G-League), according to MLive’s Andrew Kahn.

The Canton Charge are an affiliate of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Abdur-Rahkman signed a one-year deal with the Charge, according to MLive.

Abdur-Rahkman had one of the more remembered four years in the Michigan basketball program, as he played in more games than any other Wolverine. He averaged 12.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game as a senior.

The 6-foot-4 guard had 132 total assists last season with just 30 turnovers, which was the best ratio in the country with players equal to his assist total. He averaged 35.9 minutes per game which led the Wolverines.

Abdur-Rahkman broke his foot following the 2017-18 season and had surgery in late May, which made his draft stock drop. He worked out for just one NBA team before the injury.

The Charge will open the season on Nov. 3. The NBA preseason is already underway.
