Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
Rick Adelman has been quoted recently that this may be his final season as an NBA head coach. That's due in large part to the health of his wife Mary Kay.
While no decisions have been made yet, there remains a good chance that the Wolves may be in the market for a new head coach this summer.
Rick says he won't drag the process out and should have a decision in the next couple weeks. Once the season is over he'll consult with Mary Kay and her doctors. The problem is, they really don't have any idea what is causing this health scare (seizures) for Mary Kay and unless they can find some sort of tangible diagnosis, Rick may step down after two seasons with the Wolves.
The way Adelman has talked about the team and the future and what he's looking for next season in regards to players, it sounds as though this is someone who will remain in Minnesota. Glen Taylor says they're going into the offseason with the assumption that Rick is their head coach--that is, unless/until they hear otherwise. Taylor also added that he's behind whatever decision Adelman makes, 100%.
When asked if a guy like Terry Porter (who coached 11 games this season when Adelman was with his wife) could be Minnesota's new/next head coach, he responded, "Not sure about that. If Rick were to leave, I would want to think about all options we have available to us. My thought process right now would be to not look at just one person."
While Adelman's future with the team remains in limbo, so does David Kahn's. While their have been some reports that he'll return to his position as President of Basketball Operations in 2013-14, there have been other conflicting reports that say, he may be out.
Add to that, Nikola Pekovic's future with the team and the Wolves continued need for a quality shooting guard and perimeter shooting; we head into the offseason with more questions than answers.
