Wolves' coaching search far from straightforward

MINNEAPOLIS -- A month ago, it may have seemed so simple. Rick Adelman saunters off into retirement.

For Adelman, family has always come first

MINNEAPOLIS -- Mary Kay Adelman sat regally four rows behind the Timberwolves bench, her gaze rarely straying away from her husband. When it did, it was to coddle her 5-month-old grandson, whom she held for the entire second half and two overtimes that in all likelihood closed out her spouse's Hall of Fame NBA career. Berating officials and wondering how in the heck a Jazz team Minnesota...

Wolves end year with tough-to-stomach setback, enter offseason of uncertainty

MINNEAPOLIS -- Silence. The Timberwolves' public relations employee tried to indicate Kevin Love was done taking questions, but someone had to ask it. "Do you expect to be on this team next fall?" the reporter asked, just as the postgame media scrum was about to be shooed away. Love didn't say a word, just staring blankly past his heavily wrapped knees into the ice bucket soothing...

As 'weird year' winds down, Adelman's retirement could be looming

MINNEAPOLIS -- Even before the season commenced, Rick Adelman bore the appearance of a man whittled down by decades of coaching in the NBA. His wrinkled complexion, gray hair and tired eyes lent credence to the stresses of a summer spent deciding whether or not to continue coaching or hang up the whistle. Five months, 76 games and a fistful of frustrating setbacks later, he doesn...

Wolves improved from 3 this season -- but just barely

MINNEAPOLIS -- Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders calls it "popcorn basketball." It's the kind of half-court offense Rick Adelman's perfected in 23 years as a head coach -- passes popping from one set of hands to the other, while off-the-ball screens open the next target for his turn to receive the rock. Eventually, the opposition falls a rotation short...
