NBA Trade Rumors: Minnesota Timberwolves Discussing 3-Team Deal With Utah Jazz And San Antonio Spurs

With the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, the Minnesota Timberwolves could go either way. There are rumors swirling that they're in discussions with several teams, but they could also stand pat.

Considering all of the rumors though, it seems like the Timberwolves are trying to do something. The latest rumor, according to Alex Kennedy at Hoops World, has them swinging a three-team deal with the Utah Jazz and San Antonio Spurs:

In the rumored deal, the Spurs would acquire Josh Howard, the Timberwolves would acquire C.J. Miles and Jamaal Tinsley and the Jazz would acquire Danny Green and Wayne Ellington. Other players and draft picks will likely be included in the finalized trade.

Utah holds a $10.9 million traded-player exception and San Antonio holds a $854,400 traded-player exception as well.

Nothing is "imminent," but the talks are supposedly ongoing. Miles is averaging 9.4 points on a measly 33 percent shooting from beyond the arc while Jamal Tinsley has only played in eight games this year.
