The Minnesota Timberwolves' coaching search could end this week. Hopefully David Kahn doesn't mess it up.
The Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda reports that at least some of the candidates expect an answer on whether or not the Wolves have chosen them as the team's next head coach. Zgoda also writes that he "doubts" that Minnesota will bring anyone back for a second interview, meaning one of the 6½ candidates that ownership interviewed will likely be put in Kurt Rambis's old place.
The known candidates are Don Nelson, Larry Brown, Mike Woodson, Sam Mitchell, Bernie Bickerstaff, Terry Porter and maybe Rick Adelman (He's the "half" because of this). It'd be pretty surprising if one of these guys aren't the man named the Timberwolves next head coach, but I guess nothing should really surprise us considering the debacle that began when Kahn refused to fire Rambis until the point of painfully awkward.
Regardless, it looks like the Wolves might have a new fella to work under David Kahn and Co. this week.
