MINNEAPOLIS -- So, now what? As of Saturday, it appeared the Timberwolves had their man to become the franchise's 11th head coach. By Sunday evening, in a turn of events all too indicative of the club's disappointing history, he'd turned tail and reverted to the southern-plains brushfire he'd hoped to flee.
