David Kahn

  1. Kevin Love’s past the Wolves not giving him the max extension. (Note: Totally not over it.)

    Oct 14, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Tim Duncan

    When the Timberwolves decided not to give Kevin Love, All-Star, dominant rebounder, scorer, and best player on the team the max extension of five years, smart basketball fans largely had the same reaction: “Why in God’s name would you not give Kevin Love the five-year max?” The answer lies somewhere in the bowels of the…

  2. Kahn thinks Minnesota is a playoff team if they stay healthy

    David Kahn is right. The Minnesota general manager thinks that if the Minnesota Timberwolves can stay healthy next season, they are a playoff team. He’s right. Here is what he said to Brian Sansevere of the Pioneer Press. If we stay healthy. We learned the hard way last year what that means. Last year, we…

  3. Timberwolves bringing back GM David Kahn for another year

    Mar 9, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    davidkahn

    We are going to have David Kahn to kick around for another year. Minnesota owner Glen Taylor told the Pioneer Press the team plans to bring David Kahn back next season. Kahn is in the final year of his deal but the team has two one-year options and they are picking one up. “I like…

  4. Timberwolves frustrated with physical play against Rubio

    Mar 7, 2012, 1:12 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio shoots a free throw during their NBA game against Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to the NBA, Ricky Rubio. And welcome to having good players again, Minnesota Timberwolves. When you have a good player like Rubio, other teams will target him and do what they can to knock him off his game. Literally, if they can. Other teams are finding that when Rubio has space he picks them…

  5. Minnesota gets Love on its terms — and a lot of pressure

    Jan 25, 2012, 4:25 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Wayne Ellington, Ricky Rubio

    Minnesota, a franchise known for handing out ridiculous contracts — hello Wally Szczerbiak! — picked now to become frugal. Kevin Love wanted a five-year, $80 million max extension to his rookie deal, but Minnesota wouldn’t give it. Four years, $62 million was the offer on the table. Minnesota won the battle Wednesday, they got their…

  6. Kevin Love says no deal yet, but reports swirling

    Jan 24, 2012, 10:42 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    I’m going to go with what Kevin Love says about the current state of his extension. A report came from Pioneer Press Tuesday night that Love and the Timberwolves had agreed to a four-year, $62 million extension to his rookie deal. That is reportedly about what the Timberwolves had been offering, but short of the…

  7. Adelman would like to see Kevin Love’s contract get done

    Jan 20, 2012, 11:20 PM EDT

    Rick Adelman

    Agent Dan Fegan — who represents Kevin Love — was courtside at Staples Center Friday night to watch his star power forward. Timberwolves GM David Kahn also was seen walking around the building. Rick Adelman would like the two to get together and talk. They have until next Wednesday to reach a deal for an…

  8. Report: Wolves set to do the obvious, offer Kevin Love max extension

    Jan 8, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The timing is perfect. For the first time, the organization looks to be headed in the right direction. For the first time, he has a star next to him. For the first time, they have a coach who loves him. For the first time, the Wolves can capitalize on momentum, forget the mistakes of the…

  9. Report: Kevin Love has not been offered contract extension

    Jan 3, 2012, 11:45 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Among the no-brainers out there is that Kevin Love is deserving of a max contract extension off his rookie deal. He’s entering his fourth year as an All-Star and double-double machine who has improved his game this season. He will be at the core of any Timberwolves turnaround. But he hasn’t gotten even the offer…

  10. Timberwolves priority to re-sign now thinner Kevin Love

    NBA All-Star Kevin Love Holds Press Conference In Times Square

    Say what you will about David Kahn — and trust me, we will — the man knows why he still is pulling a paycheck. And he said at his press conference Thursday that he wants to make sure Kevin Love gets an extension on his rookie deal. Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune had the…

  11. Timberwolves introduce Rick Adelman, everyone plays nice

    Sep 28, 2011, 4:12 PM EDT

    Rick Adelman

    Eventually, there is going to be some tension in Minnesota. There is GM David Kahn in the last year of his deal. New coach Rick Adelman brings with him real gravitas and will have say on player/personnel issues. You can see the friction coming. But at Adelman’s introductory press conference on Wednesday it was “smiles…

  12. Maybe Adelman came to Minnesota in spite of GM Kahn

    Sep 13, 2011, 10:25 AM EDT

    rick adelman

    It is official — the Minnesota Timberwolves have announced that they have reached a deal with Rick Adelman to become the franchises next head coach. Sure, PBT and every other news outlet in America reported that yesterday, but now the team is confirming it. But is Adelman doing this in spite of GM David Kahn?…

  13. Give David Kahn credit, he hit a home run this summer

    Sep 12, 2011, 8:42 PM EDT

    Image (1) david-kahn-thumb-250x166-16426.jpg for post 3277

    Kicking Timberwolves General Manager David Kahn has been a favorite past time of bloggers and NBA writers for years. With reason. There were moves like brining in Kurt Rambis as coach to run the triangle offense — an offense minimizes traditional point guard play — then instantly drafting Ricky Rubio and Jonny Flynn back-to-back at…

  14. Report: Adelman near deal to become Timberwolves coach

    Sep 10, 2011, 3:27 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    If this happens, David Kahn will have won the summer. After having a second interview and some discussions about money, it appears that Rick Adelman is near a deal to take over as the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, reports Bill Ingram at HoopsWorld. Sources close to the situation told HOOPSWORLD that Adelman is…

  15. Report: Adelman wants $25 million guaranteed from Wolves

    Sep 9, 2011, 4:17 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Phoenix Suns

    Rick Adelman has interviewed twice to be the head coach in Minnesota, met the owner, he has a good relationship with the star player, likes to have his team run and just generally is the perfect fit on paper for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Yet, no deal so far. Why not? It’s about the money. It’s…

  16. Report: Adelman leaves Minnesota with no offer, no promise

    Aug 30, 2011, 9:41 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Phoenix Suns

    That’s two meetings with front office of Minnesota — the second one including owner Glen Taylor — and Rick Adelman still does not have an offer to be the head coach of the Timberwolves. Leaving without an offer is not that big a deal, the question is will one be coming? Ric Bucher at ESPN.com…

  17. Report: Adelman, Timberwolves agree to pay range

    Aug 29, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    It looks like Rick Adelman is one step closer to being the next head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Which in and of itself seems like a minor miracle. One of the nagging questions about the Wolves landing Adelman (who would seem the perfect fit on paper) is if they could afford him — he…

  18. Report: Adelman “definitely interested” in Timberwolves

    Aug 25, 2011, 6:48 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Rick Adelman had his interview this week with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the situation was a little bit upside down — rather than the coach having to sell the team on him, it was the team that needed to sell Adelman on the job. They wanted him, but did he want them. Apparently so, if…

  19. Report: Adelman left Minnesota without an offer. Yet.

    Aug 24, 2011, 8:14 AM EDT

    rick adelman

    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…

  20. Rick Adelman to meet with Timberwolves Tuesday

    Aug 23, 2011, 2:10 PM EDT

    rick adelman

    Last we heard from Rick Adelman, he didn’t sound like a guy that eager to coach next season. (If there is a next season. Man I’m sick of writing that phrase.) But that seems to be changing. Maybe it’s time away from the game. Maybe it’s the Ricky Rubio effect. Maybe he’s willing to do…

  21. Minnesota may get around to choosing a coach this week

    Timberwolves Kahn Basketball

    When Pistons GM Joe Dumars was asked why he moved quickly to bring in new head coach Lawrence Frank in the middle of the lockout, he said that if you want to change the energy of your organization you should not wait. The Minnesota Timberwolves have gone the other direction. GM David Kahn let former…

  22. Add Sam Mitchell to Timberwolves coaching search list

    Aug 3, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Orlando Magic, Game Five

    Minnesota has time to take in finding a new coach, what with the lockout and all, so they are using it to interview virtually everyone. Enter Sam Mitchell, the former Toronto Raptors head coach, who will be the latest to interview for the Timberwolves job, according to Jerry Zgoda at the Star Tribune. It’s not…

  23. Breaking down the Wolves coaching search by dollars

    Jul 29, 2011, 10:24 AM EDT

    Timberwolves Kahn Basketball

    It’s all about the Benjamins. With the Minnesota Timberwolves interviewing a roughly everyone west of the Misissippi River for their open coaching position — Don Nelson, Larry Brown, Rick Adelman, Terry Porter, Bernie Bickerstaff, Mike Woodson — it is hard to get exactly what they are looking for. Sure, GM David Kahn said he wanted…

  24. Kevin Love getting input on Wolves next coach

    Kevin Love mohawk

    (Editor’s note: Yes, that is Kevin Love in the photo to the right, he tweeted a pick of himself with his new haircut, and as it is a lockout we want you to know what is up with Love’s locks. You can thank us later.) Kevin Love is getting more respect from his organization than…

  25. Timberwolves to interview Larry Brown. Yes, we’re serious.

    Jul 25, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Larry Brown

    At this point, if I hear Minnesota general manager David Kahn wants to interview Adolph Rupp, I will not be surprised. Because now added to the long list of people being interviewed is Larry Brown, tweets Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. After interviewing Adelman and Nellie this weekend, #Timberwolves intend to interview Larry Brown…
