Warren LeGarie, the agent of Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Kurt Rambis, will meet with Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn to determine what the future holds for the coach and franchise.
The meeting, which will take place on Thursday according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, could ultimately end up deciding whether the Wolves will continue into next season with Rambis or look for another head coach after going 32-118 over the past two season.
If Rambis is fired by Minnesota, the team would still be on the hook for the remaining two years on his contract which was expected to be worth at least two million dollars per season. Unfortunately for Rambis, it doesn't seem that returning to the Los Angeles Lakers -- the team he was top assistant for prior to joining the Wolves that is now looking for a new head coach following Phil Jackson's retirement -- is an option.
According to a Sports Illustrated report, Rambis wouldn't be an option in L.A. considering his "struggling to find success while using the triangle offense with his young, underwhelming roster. According to an advanced scouting source, Rambis had all but abandoned the triangle late in the season for far more basic sets."
Either way, it's a good thing that the Wolves are at least going to address the situation soon. If the team needs a new head coach, it's better to have the job open before candidates take the other jobs currently on the market.
