Rick Adelman Is Interviewing, In Person, With Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves front office was rumored to maybe be making a coaching hire last week, but the week came and went without any news on that front. The reason for that, apparently, was so that the team could bring Rick Adelman up to beautiful Minneapolis for an interview opportunity. Heck, it's actually probably serving more as an opportunity for the Wolves front office to woo the near-retired coach than anything.

Regardless, Adelman has finally made his way to Minnesota to interview for the Timberwolves' head coaching job, according to the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda. Adelman had previously only talked to the Wolves via telephone, then later told a local newspaper that he didn't have any plans on coaching this season.

That Adelman is now at least interested enough in the job to take a trip to Minnesota to talk to David Kahn and Co. probably means he's at least entertaining the idea of returning to the NBA's sidelines this year -- or at least this season, depending on the end of the NBA lockout.

As KFAN's Dan Barreiro notes, taking Adelman to the Twins game against the Baltimore Orioles should definitely seal the deal, probably. Maybe. Kinda. Okay, it shouldn't hurt, should it?
