Wolves Rumors: Love, Saunders, Coaching

The end of Rick Adelman‘s tenure as Wolves coach appears imminent, as we passed along earlier today from Sid Hartman of the Star Tribune. Even once that situation is clarified, there will be plenty of others for the team to resolve. Here’s more from Hartman and others on what lies ahead for Minnesota:

  • Wolves owner Glen Taylor tells Hartman that the team isn’t “pushing” for an extension with Kevin Love and says he doesn’t think Love would be interested in signing one. Still, that’s probably not a reflection of a lack of interest from either side in a long-term deal at some point, since Love isn’t eligible to sign an extension until next January, and even then, it would only tack two additional years onto his deal.
  • Love told reporters after Wednesday’s game that he continues to have faith in the future of the Wolves, notes Andy Greder of the St. Paul Pioneer Press“Sure. Of course,” Love said.
  • The Wolves will surely consult with Love about their next coach, but they won’t give him the power to make the choice for them, tweets Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
  • Wolfson wouldn’t rule out a scenario in which Flip Saunders takes over as Wolves coach and grooms an up-and-coming assistant to replace him (Twitter link).

    You do understand that Sid is the 94 year old “Sportswriter Emeritus” of the Star Tribune. He hasn’t really broke a story since Bud Grant came back to the Vikings after Les Steckel was fired.

      I know he doesn’t do a lot of work these days, but he’s broken a few lately. Sources don’t vanish just because reporters age. If anything, they’re more trustworthy, because he’s known them longer. And Hartman knows his hoops, having at one point been GM of the old Minneapolis Lakers.

        I’m aware of that as I go back with Minnesota sports back to the 70s. He should get respect, however, he has had a history of not vetting his sources because they are “close, personal friends” and possibly telling him what they want him to hear. He has also been wrong quite a few times too. I remember that he didn’t believe that Norm Green would ever move the North Stars out of Minnesota.

        That being said, there is no way he is wrong about Adelman, as that has been understood in the community for quite some time.

          Good to know. I appreciate your local insight!
