The Timberwolves will introduce new president of basketball operations Flip Saunders at a 10:30 a.m. news conference at Target Center.
Or should I say re-introduce the former Wolves coach?
But before we get to that...
I had a long conversation with outgoing GM David Kahn yesterday after he was told his contract isn't being renewed. I give him credit for making the media rounds on radio with KFAN and ESPN 1500 and with a print guy.
You can read the chat in its four-part entirety -- dont worry, it's a fairly quick read -- by following this link.
Think of it as our very own exit interview with the guy.
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.
