Kurt Rambis Is In Minnesota, But Not Because The Timberwolves Want Him There

Kurt Rambis is currently the Minnesota Timberwolves head coach so it makes quite a bit of sense that he was at Monday's NBA Draft workout. After not being in attendance at last week's official NBA Draft Combine, it only makes sense that Rambis would at least check out prospects working out at his team's facility.

In what seems to be another aspect of the Wolves mismanaging the head coaching situation, however, Minnesota team officials told ESPN 1500's Dana Wessel that the team didn't ask their coach to be there but that he simply showed up on his own.

Team officials downplayed the significance of Rambis' presence at the workouts, saying his attendance was optional and he decided to come on his own without being summoned by the team or Kahn.

This seems to be made more interesting considering many reporting that Rambis and Kahn, the team's president of basketball operations, were not sitting with each other in the fifteen minutes the media was allowed access and did not interact.

The Timberwolves aren't making either available for comment, but hopefully they're at least talking behind closed doors as this situation is only going to get more awkward the longer it's left to fester.
