Kurt Rambis Expected To Be Fired By Minnesota Timberwolves

Minnesota Timberwolves general manager David Kahn spoke to the media about the state of the Wolves earlier this week, but stopped short of saying whether head coach Kurt Rambis would be coaching the team next season. It turns out, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports, Rambis is expected to be fired -- it's just not clear when the decision will be announced.

Considering the Wolves finished this year with the worst record in the league, it wouldn't exactly be a shock to see Rambis fired -- especially since Kahn said he thought the team itself was talented enough to win more games this season.

Apart from Rambis leading the Wolves to the obviously unimpressive record, however, Yahoo! reports that one Wolves player told them that coach's "game plans were often confusing and the coaching staff didn't seem to be on the same page."

If Rambis's job is going to be saved, it's apparently only going to be because the team doesn't want to pay him the money he's still owed on his contract with the possibly of an NBA lockout looming.

I wonder what Dwane Casey's doing these days (hint: being an assistant coach on the Dallas Mavericks).
