Minnesota Timberwolves Charade Continues With Kurt Rambis And David Kahn

The Minnesota Timberwolves, led by David Kahn, haven't handled the Kurt Rambis situation very well this offseason. Unfortunately, it seems that the ordeal is going to get worse before it gets better.

Kahn, the team's president of basketball operations, is trying move his current head coach into a front office position instead of firing him outright according to a Yahoo! Sports report.

The move is more likely so that Kahn doesn't have to eat the remaining $4 million left on Rambis's contract rather than him believing the former player would better serve the team in a role further away from the basketball court.

Rambis seems to be holding his ground, however, as sources told Yahoo! that the current head coach sees little appeal in moving to the front office because he "has little respect for Kahn's basketball acumen, and perhaps even less of a personal affinity for him."

In summary, Kahn doesn't want to fire Rambis and Rambis seems to openly dislike Kahn. Rambis is still being held in limbo, however, so there's really no telling where this situation is headed next.
