Mustafadeen Abdush "Mustafa" Shakur (born August 18, 1984) is an American professional basketball player who last played for the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA D-League. He played college basketball at the University of Arizona.

College[edit]

Shakur started all but two games during his 4-year tenure with Arizona. As a freshman, Shakur received all freshman honors in the Pac-10. Shakur's teammates at Arizona included Andre Iguodala, Salim Stoudamire, Channing Frye, Hassan Adams, Marcus WIlliams, Jordan Hill and Chase Budinger. As a sophomore Arizona captured the Pac-10 title and lost to Illinois in the Elite Eight.

Shakur led Arizona to a 5-0 record on an international tour of Canada over the Labor Day Weekend in Vancouver. He also led Arizona to a top ranking in the nation when Arizona held a 12-1 record.

Professional[edit]

NBA and NBA D-League[edit]

Shakur was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Sacramento Kings July 6, 2007.[1] He participated in the 2007 NBA Las Vegas Summer League and ranked 4th in assists per game with 6.0.[2] However, Shakur was released by the Kings after the first opening season game vs New Orleans. Shakur was signed to play in the 2009 NBA Summer League for the VAR Los Angeles Lakers.

On November 5, 2009, Shakur was drafted by the Tulsa 66ers as the first pick in the second round of the National Basketball Development League Draft.[3]

On March 14, 2010, Shakur was called up to the Oklahoma City Thunder for a 10-day contract, but never appeared in a game for them. He then returned to his previous D-League team, the Tulsa 66ers. On March 31, 2010 the Oklahoma City Thunder re-signed Shakur.[4]

On August 23, 2010, the New Orleans Hornets signed Shakur to a partially guaranteed deal.[5] However he did not make the final roster.

Shakur was reinvited to play for Tulsa, but was traded to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

On January 22, 2011, Shakur signed a 10-day contract with the Washington Wizards.[6] He made his NBA debut on the same day.

On March 5, 2013, Shakur's rights was traded to the Erie BayHawks from the Rio Grande Valley Vipers (the Vipers maintained their rights to Shakur, even though Shakur had been playing in Europe).[7]

On October 31, 2013, he was re-acquired by the Erie BayHawks.[8] On January 22, 2014, he was traded to the Tulsa 66ers.[9]

On March 16, 2014, he signed a 10-day contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder.[10] On March 26, 2014, he was not offered a second 10-day contract by the Thunder after his first 10-day contract expired. Two days later, he returned to the 66ers.

Europe[edit]

Shakur spent the 2007-08 season with the Euroleague club Prokom Trefl Sopot where he won the Polish National Championship as well as the Polish Supercup. He was then signed by the Euroleague club TAU Cerámica in mid-September 2008.[11] Shakur joined the HEBA A1 club Panellinios BC in January 2009,[12][13] where he was re-united with former Arizona Wildcat teammate Ivan Radenovic.

In June 2011 he signed with French pro club Pau-Orthez.[14] He later played in Italy.[15]
