The NBA tradeline has hit and the Timberwolves have not made any reported trades.

Ricky Rubio's name was floated in a lot of Knicks-Wolves deals for Derrick Rose, but nothing appears to have happened. Multiple reports say the Knicks wanted more than Rubio and the Wolves wouldn't budge.

It's possible that a trade gets reported in the next hour or so, but The Vertical says those odds are remote.

Here's what reporters were saying leading up to today's 2 p.m. deadline. 

According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, Rubio remains a "significant target" for the New York Knicks.

Rubio for Derrick Rose has been the rumor all week. ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the holdup on a deal is the Knicks trying to get more than just Rubio.

That "more" part of the equation might be Wolves forward Nemanja Bejelica, whom the Knicks have also expressed interest in, according to USA Today's Jeff Zillgitt.

If you missed it yesterday, Rubio was engaging with Knicks players on Twitter yesterday and he reportedly removed the Timberwolves from his Twitter bio.

According to Sports Illustrated, Rubio is "by far the most likely Wolves player to be traded." SI is also suggesting the Wolves are willing to package Shabazz Muhammad with Rubio in a deal.

We'll keep you posted as reports break throughout the day.
