The Golden State Warriors have broken off trade talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves centered on D'Angelo Russell.

Considering how frustrated Towns is right now. This is hardly great news.

I don't care. KAT is under contract for 4 more years. To overpay for a slightly above average player with turnstile defense doesn't lead to more wins and thus less frustration on the Wolves end. And just getting his buddy to lose with him won't help anyone in the process. Rather trade Towns in the end tbh when push comes to shove.

I'm with Magoose....Tell GS to kick rocks if they ask too much. NOBODY in the NBA wants to see them retool with our Hershel Walker trade. They thought they would be able to flip him easily, and now that only one team is after him, they think they should get over market value. Wiggins and Brkn FRP. That's the offer if I'm Rosas. Or find someone who wants Wiggins.

All the pressure is on Rosas. He's the one with the disgruntled franchise player.

Not really. Towns knew Cov was gone. He can throw a tantrum if he wants, he's signed for 4 more years. Rosas seems....SEEMS like a GM that won't cave to players wants, or pressure/rip off from GS. GS doesn't NEED DLo, doesn't look as if there is a bidding war for him, so if they ask too much, then we can talk again in the summer. This season is toast for us, and bringing in Russ only hurts us in the lotto. Rosas cannot afford 90 million dollars for 3 number 2 players. And Wiggins is a #3 at best.
