According to ESPN.com, the two teams have held discussions regarding a point guard swap that would send Reggie Jackson to Minnesota and Ricky Rubio to Detroit. The Timberwolves would also add Shabazz Muhammad to sweeten the deal.
Jackson signed a five-year, $80 million contract at the beginning of last season, while Rubio has just two years and under $30 million left on his contract.

In response to the column, Anthony said over the weekend, “If they feel my time in New York is over, I guess that’s a conversation we should have.”
