According to TwinCities.com, the Timberwolves are not likely to make a deal before the February 20th deadline:

Don’t expect the Timberwolves to make a trade before the deadline February 20.

Flip Saunders, the Wolves president of basketball operations, told Wolves Now that he has talked with representatives of teams to gauge interest, "but I’m not hearing anything imminent."

Saunders also noted that in order to get noticeably better, you must make a blockbuster deal, and that the demand is quite low currently.

"If you want to make a trade to make yourself significantly better right now, then those have to be blockbuster-type trades," Saunders continued, "and I don’t think there are a lot of teams that are leaning toward doing something like that."

Additionally, Flip addressed the 2014 draft and the protected first-round pick that the T'Wolves relinquished in a July 2012 trade that sent Wesley Johnson to the Phoenix Suns as a part of the three-team deal, saying that it is looking like a good draft class. The pick is top 13 protected, meaning that if the Wolves' selection is 14th or later, Phoenix owns it.

So there you have it. It doesn't look like this roster will change much, if at all, while the final two months of the season unravel.
