Rick Adelman, Minnesota Timberwolves Coming Close To Coaching Agreement According To Report

Rick Adelman is close to accepting the Minnesota Timberwolves head coaching position it seems. So close, according to reports, that he is already lining up his assistant coaching staff.

Adelman is definitely interested in the Timberwolves job, according KSTP-TV's Joe Schmit on Twitter. Citing a "great source," Schmit reports that Adelman has already made calls to line up potential assistants. The Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda semi-disputes the report, however, tweeting that somebody close to the search told him Adelman wants too much money.

Money has been a hangup with hiring Adelman ever since his name surfaced, but Zgoda says that isn't as big of a problem now as it once seemed.

Good source just told me that Taylor paid Flip a lot of money and is willing to do so again to get right coach to lead promising young group.

Adelman interviewed with Minnesota for the first time on Tuesday and may have been offered the job afterward, considering he's long been viewed as the favorite for the position if available. And, considering it's now being reported that he's looking at potential assistants, that's a pretty good possibility.
