David Kahn To Have His Contract Extended By Minnesota Timberwolves

David Kahn used to be hated by fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the team's president of basketball operations is expected to have his contract renewed following their turnaround under Rick Adelman this season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves currently find themselves with the final spot in the Western Conference playoffs and in the midst of one of their longest home winning streaks in quite some time. The team is ready to do something nobody could have foreseen just a couple of seasons ago, too, as president of basketball operations David Kahn is getting set to stay in Minnesota.

Kahn is expected to get a contract extension when his three-year deal expires at the end of the season, according to Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press.

But the deal includes two more years at the team's option, and owner Glen Taylor said Wednesday night he wants Kahn back.

"I like David; I'm happy with him," Taylor said. Taylor said he and Kahn will firm up the option at season's end.

It's interesting that the Wolves plan to make this move moreso because Minnesota has turned this season around with a near-identical roster to the one that saw Kurt Rambis dismissed over the summer. Did Rick Adelman earn Kahn the extension?
