In a season where their promising point guard Ricky Rubio missed a significant chunk of the season while rehabilitating a knee injury, their all-star power forward Kevin Love had two separate stints on the inactive list, the gamble on Brandon Roy’s ability to stay healthy failed to pay off and the draft lottery looming, Minnesota Timberwolves’ owner Glen Taylor may be reaching for the reset button. Sid Hartman, of the Star Tribune is reporting that the the Wolves could replace president of basketball operations David Kahn with their former coach Flip Saunders. There are several indications pointing to the likelihood of former Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders replacing David Kahn as president of basketball operations for the team before the 2013-14 season. Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor wasn’t available for comment on the subject Saturday, but he hasn’t kept it a secret that Saunders has served as a consultant for him on the basketball team during this season. And then some time ago Taylor talked about how he was in contact with Saunders for information on how to handle the many injuries the Wolves have suffered this season. Unless Saunders is offered a coaching job that would pay him a lot more money than he would get being the Wolves’ president of basketball operations, I think it’s a strong possibility that Saunders will replace Kahn before next season. The fact that the owner is going outside of the organization for advice on the issues surrounding the team, has to be some sort of indictment against Kahn. It’s an unfortunate situation for him because I think that a healthy Timberwolves team would’ve been competitive in the Western Conference. Flip Saunders on the other hand was fired from the Washington Wizards last season after the team started 2-15, but surely we can’t hold that against him, its the Wizards.
