Tim Duncan can smell a fifth championship ring.
The Timberwolves enter next week's NBA draft needing to add both size and shooting in their backcourt.
According to several reports, the proposed trade that would have sent Boston coach Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett to the Los Angeles Clippers is dead. For now, at least in theory, that keeps impending free agent guard Chris Paul stuck in limbo because there was no way he was going to leave the Clippers if Rivers was headed there.
During his team's Game 3 rout of the Heat, Gregg Popovich was shown on TV talking to his players while they were in the process of burying Miami with a stirring offensive display.
The Celtics and Clippers have reportedly broken off talks on a proposed trade that would have sent head coach Doc Rivers and veteran Kevin Garnett to Los Angeles.
The San Antonio Spurs are one win away from a fifth NBA championship and will go for it Tuesday night in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.
Five things to watch for in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, as the San Antonio Spurs try to clinch their fifth title and end the Miami Heat's reign on Tuesday night:
Maurice Cheeks took a seat next to Desmond Ferguson on the plane and the young prospect was impressed.

The Spurs have long been the NBA's gold standard when it comes to drafting and development, preferring to roll up their sleeves and scour the globe to find the right players to slot into well-defined roles in San Antonio.
For Tuesday's NBA Finals Game 6, the bus that rolls into AmericanAirlines Arena bringing the San Antonio Spurs should be painted like the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine. Maybe the Heat, which already sells jerseys in more flavors than Baskin-Robbins, should add one sprinkled with little question marks, Riddler-style.
Thousands upon thousands of fans took to the San Antonio streets for more than two hours after Game 5 on Sunday, clogging downtown lanes, waving flags from truck beds, hanging out of car windows, honking horns unremittingly and screaming as if the championship had already been won.
MIAMI - LeBron James stood under the basket in disbelief, as if he were too shocked to move. It was only a second, but it was long enough to understand the power of the moment. Danny Green had blocked James at the rim in transition, and James was having a hard time processing the information.
