The Minnesota Timberwolves will interview Don Nelson on Sunday for their vacant head coaching position, according to the Minnesota Star-Tribune. Nelson is the latest in a string of interviews the Timberwolves have held over the last week, including ones with Terry Porter, Mike Woodson, Bernie Bickerstaff and Rick Adelman.
Matt Moore of ProBasketballTalk has a strange feeling that Nelson will be the next coach:
This feels like it’s going to happen, despite all the better candidates, but that may just be wishful thinking for the hilarity of Nelson coaching the Timberwolves.
Nelson is no stranger to Minnesota, as the original report from the Star-Tribune points out, because his daughter and grandchildren live in the area. So one way or another, Nelson will be in Minnesota.
After Nelson, there could still be a few more candidates to interview for the job. With the league still in a lockout, there is no rush for the T'Wolves to make a decision anytime soon.
