Timberwolves Will Meet With Kurt Rambis To Discuss Coach's Future, Says Report

The Minnesota Timberwolves are quite busy these days: Ricky Rubio is scheduled to announce his decision to join the team for the 2011-12 season on Friday, and the franchise has the No. 2 and No. 20 picks in the 2011 NBA Draft, just a week away. But now is the time GM David Kahn has chosen to sit down with coach Kurt Rambis to talk about the future of the Wolves, and whether the team's head coach of the past two seasons will be there for it, reports the Associated Press.

Kahn has left Rambis' future hanging in the balance since the end of the regular season some two months ago; Rambis has attended draft workouts in Minnesota and told the media that were he in Kahn's shoes, he would have handled the decision differently. Few consider Rambis' work with the Wolves inspiring; the team has won a league-low 32 games over the past two seasons combined, including a league-worst 17 in 2010-11.

Rubio's arrival and the sure death of the Triangle offense in Minnesota should mean the end for Rambis, but the fact that Kahn has waited so long has to give anyone predicting what's next for the Wolves pause.
