Minnesota Timberwolves May Have Contacted Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski

The Minnesota Timberwolves, led by mastermind president of basketball operations David Kahn, still have yet to decide if current head coach Kurt Rambis will be fired. That hasn't stopped a slew of names to pop up as possible replacements, however.

The biggest name to pop up over the weekend was Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski. Krzyzewski, who is also the head coach of the USA Basketball team, was contacted by Kahn to help Ricky Rubio transition to the NBA, according to the New York Daily News.

If readers are wondering how a New York newspaper would have knowledge of discussions between a coach based in North Carolina and a basketball team in Minnesota, it seems that the writer was either searching for page hits or given incorrect information.

A Duke spokesman told the Herald-Sun that he spoke with Krzyzewski Saturday night and the coach said "no one had contacted him and he hadn't contacted anyone" about the Minnesota job.

That was fun while it lasted, though, right?
