The regular season is over, so you know what that means? Yes, the playoffs are coming, but it also means coaches are about to get fired. Two that definitely have their head at least near the chopping block are John Kuester (Pistons) and Kurt Rambis (Timberwolves). But it doesn't sound like anything is imminent, tweets Ken Berger.

"Sources say Minny (Rambis) and Detroit (Kuester) will wait before making decisions." Berger also says the Pistons have been "paralyzed" by ownership transfer. The Wolves are holding with owner Glen Taylor in New York for owner's meetings.

Berger noted yesterday that both Kuester and Rambis are likely to be fired, according to multiple sources. Berger wrote, "Kuester's firing is widely believed to be a foregone conclusion, though a source said there is "no timetable for anything" the organization is doing due to the pending ownership change. Rambis' tenuous situation did not get any help from GM David Kahn on Wednesday."

Also mentioned in there is that Rick Adelman's future is up in the air in Houston. Which is pretty crazy but understandable as the Rockets try and transition both their roster and staff moving ahead. Adelman's contract is up after this season so it'll just come down to an evaluation by Daryl Morey and the front office.  

Berger also says the Raptors are "unchanged for now" on the status of general manager Bryan Colangelo. Colangelo's contract expires June 30, along with coach Jay Triano. The Raptors are in a serious rebuilding situation and Colangelo might not have the opportunity to work on it.
