Minnesota Timberwolves To Interview Rick Adelman On Saturday

The Minnesota Timberwolves will officially add another name to their coaching search, as the team will interview the well-traveled Rick Adelman on Saturday for their vacant head coaching post, according to Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

In twenty seasons spent with four different teams. . .the Portland Trail Blazers, the Golden State Warriors, the Sacramento Kings and, most recently, the Houston Rockets. . .Adelman has compiled a career .605 winning percentage (945-616). He is also known for preferring an up-tempo style that would seem to fit in well with the collection of players that the Wolves have amassed in recent years.

However, Zgoda hypothesizes about what could be an even bigger reason for Adelman being on Minnesota's radar.

He has known Kevin Love for years and his hiring would be a BIG step toward convincing Love to sign a long-term contract extension.

Love and Adelman's son played on the same Lake Oswego, Ore.,high school team and Adelman saw nearly every game Love played during his senior season when he was in between jobs with the Kings and Rockets.

If the Timberwolves could get themselves a coach of Adelman's caliber and convince Kevin Love to stay around Minnesota, this writer would be all for it.
