Breaking News: Kevin Love is still unsure about future with the Wolves

Kevin Love has once again voiced his lack of trust in the Wolves’ front office and once again, it’s eliciting the same reactions. Here are a few snippets from Adrian Wojnarowski’s latest column, this time on Kevin and his uncertainty about his future in Minnesota:  Share this because Rubio would pass this along:

Batum's offer sheet official; the wrangling proceeds

After much anticipation, it’s now official. The Wolves have submitted an offer sheet for Nicolas Batum, a four year deal worth $46.5 million, giving the Blazers three days to either match the deal or allow Batum to leave. The move caps off a week that featured much wrangling and even more ill-feeling between the two […]

Befuddled by the process

The Timberwolves are confusing me. There are some things we know for sure: – This team plays at the Target Center. – They currently have a team with two star-quality players in Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. – Rick Adelman is the head coach. – Glen Taylor is the owner. – David Kahn is the […]

Hold me close

Kevin Love just signed a four year contract for $61 millon. So he isn’t to be pitied. However, I’d like to think we can still discuss our misgivings without someone doling out cliched quips regarding men being paid to play a kid’s game. Right? Our Wolves have recently enjoyed national attention for the captivating play of […]

When decisions are made for you

In June of 2009, the Sacramento Kings were faced with a very tough decision. Do you draft for flash and marketability or do you try to change the culture of your organization? At the time, the Kings were known as a “soft” organization, incapable of being consistently tough enough both mentally and physically. This identity, […]

Great heights

For all of the strange and bewildering things that David Kahn has done in his tenure as Wolves’ GM, I would argue that the national media has actually managed to overstate his ineptitude. But in the case of Ethan Sherwood Strauss’ Truehoop piece on height exaggeration in the NBA, I’d say that the rep is […]

Rick Adelman is the Timberwolves' new coach

It’s official. From the Wolves: The Minnesota Timberwolves oday announced the team has reached an agreemnt in principle on a contract with Rick Adelman to become the 10th head coach in franchise history. Adelman ranks eighth all-time in NBA coaching wins with a 945-616 (.605 winning percentage) career record in 20 seasons as a head […]

Adelman updated

Update: This is still very much in rumor phase, but folks are saying here and here (and maybe more importantly, Kevin Love is tweeting) that Adelman has agreed to a deal. More later. This from Jerry Zgoda at the Star-Tribune: The Timberwolves have started negotiations to sign Rick Adelman as their next coach, league sources […]

Ronzone shuffles

So while I spent the early part of Labor Day weekend attempting to avoid being devoured by hawks and bears and mountain lions in the wilds of western New Mexico, Tony Ronzone and the Wolves went and “parted ways.” Jerks. Here’s what the AP has to say about it: Philosophical differences between Kahn and Ronzone […]

Adelman in the flesh

Multiple sources (here and here) are reporting that Rick Adelman is in town today to have an actual face-to-face interview with Kahn, Taylor and Moor. Jerry Zgoda says this: “The Wolves brass worked for weeks to get Adelman to come in for more than a phone interview.  If he wants the job, and they can […]
