Report: Adelman left Minnesota without an offer. Yet.

We have a piece of the puzzle, but it is without enough other pieces to let us see the entire picture. Yet.

We’ve told you a lot of things leading up to yesterday’s events: That Rick Adelman flew out to Minnesota Tuesday to meet with Timberwolves GM David Kahn and other top brass; that he seems to be the Timberwolves choice, the guy they wanted; and that there were questions if he really wanted the job.

Now comes this tweet from Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune on twitter.

Adelman already apparently has flown out of town after today’s interview with #Timberwolves, without an offer (yet) being made

What does that mean? Impossible to say right now.

It could mean that after meeting Adelman didn’t want the job, although the fact he flew out to Minnesota shows some level of interest. It could mean Minnesota decided it didn’t want him, although he seems the best fit for them on paper. It could mean the Timberwolves didn’t want to match the at least $4 million a year Adelman will require to take a new job (and it may well be closer to $5 million a year).

What it most likely means is that after talking both sides wanted some time to reassess. An offer for the Timberwolves head coaching job very well may be coming soon.

But with the way this whole Timberwolves coaching situation has played out, you didn’t really expect a quick, clean ending, did you?

    That’s actually a good thing!!!

    Why coach a team with players and a GM that will lead you to failure???
