Adelman Opting-Out as Timberwolves Coach?

Basketball Insiders

Published

Minnesota Timberwolves’ basketball president Flip Saunders on Friday will be at Madison Square Garden, where Michigan State plays Virginia and Iowa State plays UConn in NCAA men’s basketball tournament East Regional games. Although Saunders won’t say, he could be watching his team’s next head coach.

It has seemed for some time that the chances of Rick Adelman, 67, returning to coach the Wolves after three playoff-less seasons are remote, despite a $20 million, four-year contract. The deal includes opt-out clauses for both parties, and Adelman’s wife, Mary Kay, has had health issues that caused the future hall of fame coach to miss 11 games.

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dwyane Wade approached coach Tyronn Lue over the weekend and requested to come off the bench for the defending Eastern Conference champions, returning JR Smith to the starting shooting guard role he occupied for most of the past three seasons.

“I just decided, earlier than later, just to get to the unit where I’d be more comfortable in and can probably be better with this team in that lineup,” Wade said after practice Monday. “Why wait? Three games in, why wait? Wanted to get in there with those guys.”
