Rick Adelman leaves Minnesota without deal

The search for a new head coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves stretches on. The Associated Press reports that Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor and president of basketball operations David Kahn pitched the job and organization to Rick Adelman Tuesday, but he left town without an offer in hand.

Kahn and Adelman have known each other for many years, the AP notes, initially meeting when Adelman coached the Portland Trail Blazers from 1988-1993 and Kahn was a writer for the Oregonian newspaper.

The Associated Press also points out that Taylor “has taken on a more prominent role in the last few weeks” in the coach search, despite once saying the decision was totally Kahn’s to make.

The Timberwolves have previously interviewed Sam Mitchell, Terry Porter, Mike Woodson, Don Nelson, Larry Brown and Bernie Bickerstaff for the job, the AP reports.
