Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
David Kahn & Glen Taylor had a busy weekend-on Saturday they interviewed Rick Adelman & on Sunday another coaching great: Don Nelson. The head coaching search continues as next on the docket is former Charlotte Bobcats head coach: Larry Brown.
It's likely Brown won't be the last candidate the Timberwolves interview as it's been reported there'll be one or two others.
It's currently unknown as to when the TWolves are going to get a chance to interview Brown, because of a recent death in his family.
The Timberwolves have also interviewed Terry Porter, Mike Woodson & Bernie Bickerstaff. Larry Brown--along with Nelson, Adelman & Bickerstaff are all over the age of 65. A clear indication that the Timberwolves are looking for an experienced coach with a solid track record. Don Nelson is of course the NBA's winningest coach in NBA history with 1,335 and of course Brown sits at #6 with 1,098 wins.
David Kahn has been adamant he's looking for a coach with a 'fast-break' style. This of course is something that Brown isn't known for--like someone--say...Nelson? Larry Brown has also been known to want to 'blow up' a roster when coming to a new team--making numerous trades and being quite impatient with young players.
Larry Brown was fired last season by the Charlotte Bobcats--through just 28 games into the season. It was originally reported as a mutual decision, Brown later refuted saying it was not a mutual decision and he was in fact--FIRED. He was later replaced by the current Bobcats coach: Paul Silas.
David Kahn has a history with Brown, when he was the head coach at UCLA and Kahn was a student-newspaper-reporter there. As such, David Kahn considers Larry Brown to be one of his mentors.
