Rick Adelman Gets Second Interview With Minnesota Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves will interview Rick Adelman for a second time in two weeks, according to a report from ESPN. If true, Adelman will be the first to interview twice with the Timberwolves since the coaching search began when Kurt Rambis was fired.

Adelman's first in-person interview, following an interview over the phone, happened last Tuesday. Unfortunately, owner Glen Taylor -- who is expected to need to open his checkbook in order to bring the longtime head coach into the Timberwolves mix -- was unable to attend.

ESPN's Ric Bucher has the report.

Rick Adelman is returning to Minneapolis on Tuesday to meet with Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor about the team's coaching vacancy, according to a league source.

Two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Aug. 24 that Adelman had met with Taylor during his first interview in Minneapolis, but the league source said Monday that Taylor's health issues kept the two from talking face to face.

If Adelman can sell himself to Taylor, a formal offer might not be far behind.
