It was known well before the trade deadline that the Nuggets will trade Bones Hyland. One of potential suitors for the 22-year-old point guard was the Timberwolves.

According to Darren Wolfson, Minnesota thought that they had a deal done for Hyland, but the player was eventually traded to the Clippers.

The reason why Denver chose not do a trade with the Timberwolves is reportedly that the Nuggets did not want to help their former executive Tim Connelly who went to Minnesota last summer.

Via HoopsHype:

Darren Wolfson on the Wolves: Bones Hyland was the second trade target that they nearly completed (…) They thought they had a deal done, they would have done what the Clippers did. In fact, they would have done more but you’ve heard me mention this… there was a thought that the Denver ownership group was not willing to help Tim Connelly here in Minnesota.
