Minnesota Timberwolves general manager David Kahn will apparently keep his job for the time being, as team owner Glen Taylor told Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he is "OK' with Kahn, who has been a firebrand since taking over the franchise in 2009. (The team has gone 32-132 in that span.) But head coach Kurt Rambis might not be safe. Taylor indicates that Rambis' future is up to Kahn.
"David hasn't talked to [Rambis] and hasn't said what they're going to do yet," Taylor said. "I'm still waiting there."
Rambis, also hired in 2009, has two more years remaining on his contract. The Wolves could elevate assistant coaches Reggie Theus (a former NBA head coach) or Bill Laimbeer, or Kahn could begin a coaching search parallel to NBA Draft preparation. The Wolves have the No. 2 and No. 20 picks in the June 23 draft. Rumors have suggested Minnesota will look to package the No. 2 pick for a veteran star.
