Negotiations between the Warriors and Timberwolves have hit an impasse.

Golden State is moving on from discussions with Minnesota over a trade involving guard D'Angelo Russell after the Timberwolves were unable to meet the Warriors' price point, reports The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Though the Timberwolves' key trade target appears to be off the table, Minnesota reportedly later agreed on a blockbuster, four-team deal with the Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, and Denver Nuggets that saw 12 players change sides.

Golden State and Minnesota exchanged deal concepts Tuesday but are still separated by a "significant gulf" in negotiations, Wojnarowski adds. The Warriors' focus is to get underneath the luxury-tax line while still acquiring value in any swap. However, the team is also reportedly open to keeping Russell past the 3 p.m. ET deadline Thursday.

Russell is averaging 23.8 points and 6.3 assists in 32 games with Golden State this season. He was acquired over the summer in the sign-and-trade that sent Kevin Durant to the Brooklyn Nets.

Okogie one of last Wolves remaining from Thibodeau era .
TORONTO – Over the past week, Timberwolves guard Josh Okogie saw some of his best friends on the team head to other destinations. Gorgui Dieng is gone, so is Andrew Wiggins and the Wolves traded Jeff Teague last month as part of a massive roster overhaul. Those were three of Okogie’s closest friends on the team, and at first it was a blow for Okogie to take. “Initially my reaction was kind of like, ‘Whoa. Everybody’s gone,’ ” Okogie said. “That’s the hardest part about this job. You form relationships with guys and you form memories and you don’t forget, but it slips your mind sometimes that it’s still a business and the business of basketball is you might get traded.
