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.
