Mitchell Still Waiting on Wolves

David Kahn, the Timberwolves GM, apparently has Sam Mitchell on his short list for head coach...but would like to expand the list to include Rick Adelman, late of the Rockets. Adelman had initially indicated he wanted to take this year off but Kahn wants him to come to Minnesota for a chat and he may very well.

Kahn is looking for a coach who can mold his young, athletic assets into a run-and-gun operation, and with Ricky Rubio, Michael Beasley and Kevin Love, he has some attractive pieces. His boss, Glen Taylor, likes Mitchell for his record of working with young teams and his history --10 seasons-- with the Wolves as a player.

If Mitchell doesn't get the job in Minnesota, he is likely to return to the Nets as Avery Johnson's lead assistant. The team has another vacancy with the departure of Larry Krystkowiak for the University of Utah.
