No Offer Yet for Adelman From ‘Wolves
Rick Adelman met with Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor on Tuesday as planned but returned to his offseason home in Portland, Ore., without an offer to be the Timberwolves’ next head coach or a promise that one would be forthcoming, a source familiar with the talks said.
This was Adelman’s second trip to Minneapolis in as many weeks to explore the possibility of him succeeding Kurt Rambis, who was fired in July. Adelman visited last week but did not meet with Taylor because the 70-year-old owner was not feeling well, a league source said.
Adelman returned to Minneapolis late Monday night, had dinner with general manager David Kahn and met with Taylor at his home on Tuesday before flying home again, the source said.
The Timberwolves do not plan to interview any more candidates, but there is a possibility that they could invite one or two who already have interviewed to a second visit, a league source said. Aside from Adelman, the Timberwolves interviewed Bernie Bickerstaff, Don Nelson, Larry Brown, Terry Porter, Mike Woodson and Sam Mitchell.
