The VIkings Will Release Adrian Peterson

After a very disappointing second-half collapse, the Minnesota Vikings have an important off-season ahead of them. The team is without a first round pick thanks to the Sam Bradford trade, they have one of the worst offensive line situations in the league, and of course Adrian Peterson has a massive salary due for next season. The team (and Adrian) will need to decide in the near future if they plan to keep him around on a restructured contract or simply cut ties with him.

Wolves Stand Pat at Deadline, Keep Rubio

After days of Ricky Rubio trade rumors, the NBA trade deadline has come and gone with the Minnesota Timberwolves not making a single trade.

The team had been rumored to be shopping Ricky Rubio heavily over the last week, and it seemed like he would be traded somewhere. Thankfully, for whatever reason the Wolves chose to hold onto the Spaniard for at least the remainder of the season.

Derrick Rose Makes No Sense for the Timberwolves

Reports emerged on Monday evening that the Minnesota Timberwolves had been in contact with the New York Knicks about acquiring point guard Derrick Rose.

Rose is a former league MVP and #1 overall pick, so any time his name is mentioned it's note-worthy. Unfortunately, Rose hasn't been a good player since the 2011-2012 season, which was five years ago. Knee injuries have robbed Rose of the explosiveness that made him such a great player.

DeMarcus Cousins Traded to the Pelicans

Hours after the conclusion of the NBA All-Star Game, news broke via Adrian Wojnarowski that the Kings and Pelicans had agreed to a trade that would send superstar DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans.

There had been rumors all day that the Kings and Pelicans were talking, but those rumors were largely debunked by the Sacramento media prior to the All-Star Game. The deal is reportedly Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, New Orleans' first round draft pick in 2017 (Top 3 protected) and Philadelphia's second round pick in 2017 for Cousins and Omri Casspi.
