08:15 AM ET 02.25 | The Timberwolves stood mostly pat at the deadline, but this coming offseason may see some action in Minnesota. They'll have a little less than $44 million in contracts on the books after their expiring contracts come off. Then add Ricky Rubio's $3.4 million cap hold and as many as three first-round picks and the Wolves will have to deal at least Flynn's contract and maybe one or more of their picks to make space for a player with a substantial salary. Expect to hear Steve Nash's name pop up again this summer. The Wolves made some inquiries around the trade deadline and, as wacky as it sounds, are interested in possibly adding Nash's $11.7 salary on the final season of his contract in 2011-12 both for his veteran presence and as a tutor of sorts to Rubio.

They really need three point guards?

I find it amusing that a club obsessed with PGs is coached by tough guys like Rambis & Laimbeer.

I think Nash would retire before he plays for the Wolves

Why would Nash go to Minny???? Why would Ricky Rubio for that matter go there

Is there any franchise in sports more screwed up than the Timberwolves?? They've traded away everything that remotely resembles a player except Love. And what the hell do they think Rubio or any other guard is going to do for them?? I'm not for contraction, but I do think the league should demand competence.
