The Wolves on Monday announced that David Adelman has been promoted ot assistant coach and that Bobby Jackson has been hired as player development coach.
Adelman served as player development coach the past two seasons, a position responsible for the team's player developement initiatives. He served as head coach of the Timberwolves Summer League team this past summer.
Jackson was an assistant coach with the Sacramento Kings the past two seasons. The former Gophersx star played 12 seasons in the NBA with six teamsk including the Timberwolves from 1998 to 2000.
Jackson helped lead the Gophers to the 1997 Final Four, an accomplishment later wiped out by the NCAA because of violations under then-coach Clem Haskins.
Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.
Those who knew Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler long ago are having their allegiances tested now that the pride of Tomball, Tex., is playing the Houston Rockets tonight in Game 2 of their NBA playoff series.
