Trade rumors circle Wolves as NBA trade deadline approaches


With the NBA's trade deadline looming, trade rumors surrounding the Minnesota Timberwolves appear to be running rampant.

Whether or not the Wolves will be able to get anything accomplished before the deadline arrives Thursday at 2 p.m. remains to be seen.

Starting with the deal that sent Kevin Love to Cleveland and brought in highly regarded rookie Andrew Wiggins, the Timberwolves have made four trades in the last six months. Yet it seems the team is still at least considering several other deals.

One of those trades sent the Wolves Gary Neal and a second round pick for Mo Williams and Troy Daniels, but Neal hasn't been too interested in coming to Minnesota, preferring instead to play for a contender.

He was averaging 9.6 points on 36 percent shooting this season, but was only connecting on 29 percent from the three-point line. For his career though, Neal is a 38 percent three-point shooter.

The Wolves though are hoping to unload Chase Budinger in a Neal trade, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

But the rumors don't stop at Neal and Budinger. According to multiple reports, the Wolves have been trying to move Anthony Bennett.

CBS Sports reports Minnesota is also shopping Kevin Martin, but hasn't had a lot of luck. The report indicates that he and several other league veterans could be headed for buyouts.
