NBA Trade Rumors: Timberwolves, Grizzlies unlikely to make trade

The NBA trade deadline is in less than a day, which means that teams are starting to propose deals and others are starting to strike them down and send back rejection notices. One deal that has been closely watched involves the Minnesota Timberwolves chasing Tony Allen and Tayshaun Prince from the Memphis Grizzlies, but the once promising talks seem to have fallen through.

After hearing reports earlier on Wednesday that a deal was close between the two teams, Sam Amick from USA Today is hearing that the talks are starting to crumble as the Grizzlies don’t want to trade Tony Allen to the Wolves in the proposed deal.

This doesn’t mean the two teams won’t make a trade, but it does mean that only Tayshaun Prince may be coming to Minnesota if a deal is struck. J.J. Barea seems the likeliest piece to move from Minnesota and it’s unclear if the Wolves would also send Chase Bundinger to acquire Prince.
