  1. Rick Adelman next to interview for Timberwolves job

    Jul 22, 2011, 2:31 PM EDT

    rick adelman

    The question isn’t if Rick Adelman would do a good job as Timberwolves coach, because he would. He’s done a good job everywhere he’s been, you don’t get a .605 career winning percentage without knowing how to do the job well. The questions are if he wants the job, and if the Wolves will pay…

  2. Report: Bickerstaff to interview with Timberwolves Friday

    Jul 22, 2011, 10:13 AM EDT

    Bickerstaff

    No real shock here, this was expected, but we pass along the news anyway. Bernie Bickerstaff will be formally interviewing for the Minnesota Timberwolves vacant head coaching job on Friday, according to the Star Tribune. Bickerstaff, who is currently an assistant in Portland, has spent 13 seasons as head coach in the NBA with stops…

  3. Report: Two teams fined for speaking about players

    Jul 20, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    no talking

    It was bound to happen — David Stern is a stickler for his rules. One of his rules was team officials cannot even talk about players during the lockout. (Go look at NBA.com and try to find a picture of a current player.) Now two teams have gotten their wrist slapped for this, tweeted Yahoo’s…

  4. Timberwolves interview Mike Woodson for coaching gig

    Jul 19, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    IL: Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    For the past few weeks, once the ownership change went through and John Kuester was let go, it was thought Mike Woodson was he frontrunner to be the new head coach of the Detroit Pistons. But Celtics assistant (and former Nets head coach) Lawrence Frank reportedly impressed owner Tom Gores in the interview. The Pistons…

  5. Terry Porter interviews for Timberwolves coaching job

    Jul 18, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    Don Nelson is getting all the hype, but he is still in Maui. (If you have to be somewhere, that’s not a bad place to choose.) But former Bucks and Suns head coach Terry Porter is in Minnesota talking to the Timberowolves official about their head coaching job, according to the Star Tribune. Porter has…

  6. This Nellie to Minnesota thing may actually be happening. Ye Gods.

    Jul 16, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Minnesota Timberwolves

    If it takes two to tango, the unholy dance of David Kahn and Don Nelson together is halfway to the dance floor. After rumors popped up earlier this week of a potential meeting between the two for Nelson to take over as head coach following Kurt Rambis’ departure, Jerry Zgoda of the Minnesota Star-Tribune spoke…

  7. Kevin Love speaks well of Rambis, talks new coach

    Jul 13, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love and finally fired Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis did not have a great relationship. It was one of the reasons Rambis was let go (that and all the losing). But the way Rambis was fired, left to twist in the wind for three months after the season, was just an embarrassment. It was bad…

  8. Report: Wolves may move Rambis to front office

    Jul 7, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    This whole situation is just pathetic. The Minnesota Timberwolves have yet to officially fire Kurt Rambis. Make no mistake, he’s done. He will not be coaching the Timberwolves next year. That much is clear. But Rambis continues to be hung out to dry by the wolves. Officially he is still the coach. Nobody has fired…

  9. Report: Wolves targeted Coach K for coaching position until they remembered they’re the Wolves

    Jun 26, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    It’s not like they’re going to have trouble getting a coach. Any head coaching position will draw interest, and will draw qualified candidates. There are only 30 NBA head coaching jobs, so most people if offered one will take it, no matter the circumstances. But the Minnesota Timberwolves are damaging their future ability to get qualified…

  10. 21-year-old Timberwolves draft pick Ngombo is actually 26

    Jun 24, 2011, 4:39 PM EDT

    davidkahn

    It’s hard for a 57th overall pick to make headlines less than 24 hours after being drafted, but Timberwolves draft pick Tanguay Ngombo has managed to do that for all the wrong reasons. Jonathan Givony of Draft Express made the discovery: Uh-oh, looks like our guy T’Wolves draft pick Tanguy Ngombo has been busted for…

  11. Wojnarowski: Teams trying to trade for #2 pick “frustrated”

    Jun 23, 2011, 3:54 PM EDT

    davidkahn

    Here’s another tidbit from the invaluable Adrian Wojnarowski, this time concerning the #2 pick: Many front offices are frustrated trying to deal with Minny for No. 2 pick. One says, “If you want a deal right now you’re talking to Utah.” There has been speculation about Utah trading the #2 pick ever since they got…

  12. Report: Timberwolves fire Kurt Rambis

    Jun 22, 2011, 9:06 PM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Minnesota Timberwolves have decided to fire head coach Kurt Rambis, but will not make the official announcement until after tomorrow’s draft: Minnesota Timberwolves general manager David Kahn has decided to fire coach Kurt Rambis, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Kahn isn’t expected to announce the decision until after Thursday’s…

  13. David Kahn wants Andrew Bynum for the #2 pick

    Jun 21, 2011, 11:09 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Marco Belinelli

    There has been widespread speculation that the Timberwolves are looking to trade the #2 pick in this year’s draft, because projected #2 pick Derrick Williams is a small forward/power forward and the Timberwolves already have Kevin Love at the 4 and Michael Beasley as a tweener 3/4, which Williams projects as. Anyways, David Kahn would…

  14. Video: Rubio greeted by fans, media in Minnesota

    Jun 20, 2011, 4:38 PM EDT

    Spain v USA

    Only two short years after he was drafted with the 5th overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves, point guard prospect Ricky Rubio actually physically arrived in Minnesota on Monday, and there was much rejoicing. According to ESPN1500 Twin Cities, who the video comes courtesy of, Rubio was greeted by “about 200″ fans and media members…

  15. Wolves’ Kahn gave Kurt Rambis summer homework

    Jun 17, 2011, 4:36 PM EDT

    Timberwolves Kahn Basketball

    Finally after two months of not meeting, not talking seriously about the future, General Manager David Kahn and coach Kurt Rambis finally sat down to talk about where the Minnesota Timberwolves are headed. What took so long? Apparently Kahn had assigned Rambis homework — he wanted a written report from Rambis about changes needed. And…

  16. Timberwolves Kahn, Rambis finally have meetings

    Jun 16, 2011, 5:31 PM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    Two months after their season ended. In the middle of what should be the busiest two weeks a general manager has all season leading up to the NBA draft. Sure, now seems like a great time for the Minnesota Timberwolves general manager David Kahn and coach Kurt Rambis to finally sit down and have a…

  17. Report: Rambis to return to Wolves but must retool staff

    Jun 4, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Love_Rambis

    Kurt Rambis may have no idea what is going on with his job, but apparently other people do. He may be staying on board for another year. J. Michael Falgoust of the USA Today tweeted this Friday night. I’m told by a source that #Twolves will bring back #KurtRambis but force him to retool his…

  18. Rambis has no idea what is happening with Wolves either

    Jun 3, 2011, 4:41 PM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    Kurt Rambis is still the coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. That’s all he knows. Rambis finally broke his media silence following workouts for potential draftees at the Target Center — but that didn’t really clear anything up about who will coach the team next year. Because he’s only had “minor conversations” with sGM David Kahn…

  19. Ricky Rubio is coming. Will he be good?

    Jun 2, 2011, 3:24 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    The good news: Ricky Rubio, the #5 overall pick in the 2009 draft and one of the most dynamic point guard talents in the world, is coming to the NBA and joining the team that drafted him. The bad news: Rubio really didn’t give Timberwolves fans much to get excited about during his last season…

  20. Kurt Rambis is showing up to work until he gets fired

    May 24, 2011, 1:32 PM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    Good on Kurt Rambis. It has largely been rumored the he was going to be let go by the Minnesota Timberwolves after this season, but so far no word. Team owner Glen Taylor said as an aside the other day that he didn’t know what was going to happen with Rambis and that the decision…

  21. Lockout makes Ricky Rubio hesitant to come to NBA

    May 24, 2011, 11:27 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    This is just plain obvious. Which is why it seemed ludicrous when GM David Kahn and the rest of the Minnesota brass were trying to sell the “Ricky Rubio will be with us next season” crap a month back and more. Rubio wants to know what is up with the NBA lockout before committing to…

  22. Timberwolves owner says team may keep No. 2 pick

    May 23, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT

    Glen Taylor Timberwolves

    The scuttlebutt is that GM David Kahn and the Minnesota Timberwolves are shopping the No. 2 pick hard. Other teams say the Wolves are asking for the moon, but the pick is available. Kahn of course has said that no decision has been made, options are being explored. But Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor sounded more…

  23. Wolves GM Kahn says fixed lottery comment was joke

    May 18, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

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

    You should decide this one for yourself. Late last night we told you about Minnesota General Manager David Kahn implying that the fix was in on the lottery (and how that will cross the line with David Stern). On Wednesday Kahn has been saying he was simply making a little joke and that has been…

  24. Report: Timberwolves willing to trade No. 2 pick

    May 18, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    Clearly, Minnesota GM David Kahn did not love getting the No. 2 pick in the draft. Can’t really blame him (question how he handled it, what he said, but not the natural reaction of being frustrated). Duke point guard Kyrie Irving made a lot of sense for the Wolves (despite all their other PGs, none…

  25. Winderman: Wolves GM Kahn crossed Stern’s line in sand

    May 18, 2011, 11:56 AM EDT

    davidkahn

    A few years back, amid one of those periods of inspection when it came to NBA officiating, the attempt was made during one of his NBA Finals media sessions to get David Stern to comment on greater access to referees. The question began something along the lines of, “Considering there will always be those who…
