06:54 AM ET 02.18 | The deadline nears, and Memphis may be ready to deal. [The Grizzlies] are discussing a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves centered on forward Chase Budinger and guard J.J. Barea, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Memphis wants to include forward Tayshaun Prince into the package and the deal could be expanded to include guard Tony Allen, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Components of a proposed deal are still fluid. Memphis has been furiously trying to unload Prince and the remaining $7.2 million (2013-'14) and $7.7 million (2014-'15) on his contract, league sources said. Minnesota general manager Flip Saunders is believed to want to add defensive toughness to his roster, and that would make Allen a natural to fill the Wolves' void.

ACTUALLY.... they don't.

No more grizzlies in Minny....just a bunch of African-American bears. (is that the politically correct term?)

Can't see Minn taking Prince & Allen

Getting rid of Princes contract=good. Getting rid of the grindfather=bad. Getting a chucker as a backup point=no thanks.
