The Timberwolves declined.

I have a hard time believing that was the actual ask. If it had been Edwards OR KAT, I could believe it. I still wouldn't accept it, but I could believe they made it.
Similar to what I said, cut the offer in half, Towns and a couple picks, and I’d MAYBE consider it. Still might not accept. But at least my answer would be “Hmm, let’s analyze this a bit”, instead of “LOL call me back when you get serious”. And I wouldn’t give up Ant in any Durant deal, even straight up, just because of the 12 year age difference.
And speaking of Ant’s age, he still can’t drink legally for a few more weeks. This blows my mind.
I would have serious concerns about giving up a premium price for Durant at this point.
