With the news coming Sunday that Dave Joerger and the Grizzlies had patched up their relationship and he would remain the Memphis head coach, the new favorite for the Wolves coaching position has to be Sam Mitchell.

Mitchell played with the Timberwolves for 10 seasons, including his final seven years with Flip Saunders as his head coach. Mitchell went on to become an assistant coach with Milwaukee from 2002 to ’04 before landing a head coaching job in Toronto, where in 2007 he was named NBA Coach of the Year.

Mitchell never really got a fair shake in Toronto, being fired after starting 8-9 in the 2008-09 season after taking the Raptors to the playoffs the previous year.
