Thibodeau on trade rumors: 'I like the guys we have'

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota Timberwolves president and coach Tom Thibodeau said the team will continue to talk to teams about possible trades ahead of Thursday's deadline, but he didn't see a deal that makes sense for them "at this point."

The Timberwolves returned to work on Wednesday evening after the All-Star break in hopes of mounting a push for the playoffs. The Wolves are 13th in the Western Conference, but only 3 1/2 games behind Denver for the eighth seed.

The Wolves have been mentioned frequently in trade rumors this week, with much of the conversation centering around point guard Ricky Rubio. But Thibodeau brushed aside questions about those reports, saying he would not comment on speculation.
