More Wolves: Adelman retires | Grade | Season in Review

ESPN reports that the Minnesota Timberwolves have interest in University of Florida coach Billy Donovan to replace Rick Adelman who retired on Monday.

Donovan has won two national titles at Florida, and four straight Sweet 16s. The Gators made the Final Four this year, losing to eventual champion UConn.

Donovan was a strong candidate for the Orlando Magic coaching job several years ago before backing out at the last minute, allowing Stan Van Gundy to take his place.

Wolves president Flip Saunders is reportedly combing the college coaching ranks to find a replacement for Adelman. The Wolves present a team that isn't looking at a rebuild like the Magic, and have an established roster in place. But with Kevin Love's impending free agency in a year, the situation could be described as less than stable.
