Rick Adelman will meet with Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor on Tuesday, reports ESPN's Ric Bucher. Adelman formally interviewed with Wolves GM David Kahn last week, and is reportedly interested in the team's head coaching job. The Wolves have gone 32-132 over the past two seasons. Adelman has a career 945-616 record as an NBA head coach.
Adelman spent the last four seasons with the Houston Rockets; he missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons despite finishing over .500 -- such is the strength of the Western Conference -- and parted ways with the team due to a rift among Adelman and management. Oddly enough, the Rockets hired former Wolves GM and interim coach Kevin McHale to replace Adelman.
The Wolves fired Kurt Rambis in July after two dreadful seasons. Minnesota has had a bit of a makeover this summer, bringing 2009 pick Ricky Rubio to the team and taking Derrick Williams No. 2 overall in the June draft. It's expected that once the season officially starts the Wolves will be active in the trade market, in part because Kahn is always active in the trade market and in part because there are significant roster adjustments to be made.
