I think it's safe to say Rambis is gone after tommorow right? So who do you guys think can come in and help lead our young team? I was hoping for Mark Jackson when he was available but the the Warriors got him.
Probably Lawrence Frank Or Rick Adelman..
I think they need a veteran coach for such a young team. If Adelman is interested in a rehab project, I think this would be perfect for him. He uses bigs which is a strength of the Wolves and the team could use his experience.
Rick Adleman could work, I'd like to see Jerry Sloan on the Wolves sideline..
all depends if the more experiences coaches like frank and adelman want to go there.
i definalty dont think its a task for a rookie head coach.
I like Adelmen the best with their roster, but think Frank could bring a defensive intensity they desperatly need. I also think it would be funny if they brought in Brian Shaw and he kept trying to run the triangle.
As a Kings fan... Adelman would be great. We should have never let him go from Sactown but he knows how to work with young talent.
I would really like Rick Adelman too
I'm having trouble thinking of anyone else besides Van Gundy and I don't see that ever happening. But I do think Adelman would be great, he's a really good coach and he would be at the top of my list.
It seems like Kahn should have already fired Rambus and this talk should have started a lot sooner...I'm sure the future coach would love to have some input on the draft and trade ideas so he could mold the team to fit his style or vision.
ok is anyone missing this but me..or could phil jackson just coach the heat and win like 4 titles? anyways for the wolves id say sloan would be the steal of a life time but id settle for adelman. not a kings fan but he does make the teams he coaches better as long as hes got talent. def not the job for a rookie to come in. we need someone who knows what theyre doing
I don't Sloan is coming out of retirement but I agree Adelman could be a good fit.
Sloan coming out of retirement to coach B-Easy, Darko, Anthony "doghouse" Randolph, and a rookie PG?? Better chance of a Mets-Orioles World Series than that.
Lorenzo Romar of Washington
Kelvin Sampson of the Bucks
I heard that Romar is the early favorite but I don't know anything about him. They really need a strong coach with a history of handling a young staff. It would really be better to have a coach in place before the draft but Kahn has an interesting way of handling Rambis, too bad he wasted his time on that Written Report.
If they are serious about moving forward with these guys, they need to get a proven coach. Sam Mitchell, former coach of the year as well as a former Minnesota player would be my pick. He had some success with a smaller market team. I don't like the idea of firing a coach after one year, I think if you put in the time , you deserve to follow through with your plan, otherwise it's back to back rebuilding plans.
This article says they're focusing on *shudder* Bernie Bickerstaff, who has a sub- .500 career record. What are they thinking, seriously? I would LOVE it if they could somehow lure Adelman or SVG; even Sam Mitchell (an ex-Wolf). ANYBODY other than Bickerstaff.
It sounds like Rambus was a terrible head coach. He was never a good fit in MN from the start. I hope they get the right guy this time, and I'm not high on Bickerstaf and Romar would just be another gamble because he's never coached in the NBA.
They can't hire Bickerstaff, can they? He's a really really unsuccessful retread who developed what young talent exactly? Right, next to none. Ugh. Come on, Frank!
