    Danny Ainge's Mystery Target has gotten all the post-trade deadline attention, but with the Bucks and Timberwolves facing off tonight, let's look at perhaps the most interesting deal that didn't happen on February 18th: Minnesota's push to acquire Khris Middleton.

    After some initial talks, the Wolves told Milwaukee they would swap Ricky Rubio for Middelton, and when the Bucks declined, Minnesota even discussed the possibility of tossing in a protected 2016 first-round pick, per league sources familiar with the matter. Other outlets have reported Milwaukee's interest in Rubio -- Jason Kidd seems to have a thing for rangy point guards with busted jumpers -- but Milwaukee never seriously entertained trading Middleton, sources say.

    In other news the 76ers offered Embiid for Curry. Warriors declined. 76ers said they might throw in a protected 2nd rounder.

    Warriors never seriously considered trading Curry.
