David Kahn To Return As GM

March 30 2013 at 8:37am CDT By Zach Links

David Kahn's position as General Manager of the Timberwolves is secure and the the one-year option on his contract will be exercised shortly, if it has not been exercised already, sources tell Ric Bucher of 95.7 The Game (Sulia link).  That presumably means that Flip Saunders won't return to the organization, as the club had interest in him as a possible replacement for Kahn.

Owner Glen Taylor insisted earlier this month that Kahn could return for 2013/14, despite a great deal of outside criticism for the exec.  The Timberwolves have had the misfortune of being bit by the injury bug this season with Ricky Rubio missing the early part of the season and Kevin Love missing much of the second half.  However, Kahn's personnel decisions during his time in Minnesota have led the club to a 58-172 record over the last three seasons.

  1. That is just great news. 58-172, what a body of work. What will one more season do? Oh hold on J. Flynn over S. Curry???

    1. Don’t forget Wes Johnson over DeMarcus Cousins. The worst part about the Flynn draft was every PG in the first round (there was a lot) became a stud or solid player except Jonny Flynn.

  2. Well there goes our next draft…
    Not only does Taylor do a horrible job at picking executives, he really has no idea when to let them go.
