This thing might actually be happening, which is strange and disconcerting to the world view that David Kahn can never hit a home run. Rick Adelman interviewed with the Wolves last week and it didn't go badly. Now Monday, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that the two sides may have figured out a big piece of the puzzle:
I'm hearing today what I heard 5 weeks ago: Adelman's presence 4 interview means #Timberwolves already have agreed to pay range: $4-6M pervia Twitter / @JerryZgoda: I'm hearing today what I h ....
Now that's prior to the interview, but that's a big piece of the puzzle. If the money's right, and the interview went well, that would seem to lead to the idea this thing could be moving in a good direction. Adelman reportedly is already lining up assistants for the gig.
Adelman would be a revelation for Kahn who has been a punchline during his time with the Wolves. But as SBNation points out, all that would change with the Adelman hire.
Are the Wolves "back?" Wait, were they ever really "there?"
