PBN: Wolves/Lakers deal "officially dead"

From ProBasketballNews:
Trade talks that involved sending Minnesota star Kevin Garnett to the Los Angles Lakers have ended, sources within the organizations have told ProBasketballNews.com.

"It's officially dead. (Timberwolves owner Glen) Taylor won't allow it to happen," one source said.

Second source: "All discussions have ended (between the Lakers and Timberwolves)"

Third source: chances are "very slim" Garnett would end up with the Lakers

"It seems like they don't want (Garnett) playing in the Western Conference, and that only makes sense," the first source said.
