With reported favorite Dennis Lindsey out of the running, the race to become the Timberwolves’ new head of basketball operations is seemingly wide open, and Randy Pfund is interested.
A day after Lindsey, the San Antonio Spurs’ assistant general manager, withdrew his name, Pfund said Saturday that Minnesota is still on his NBA radar.
“I am looking to get back to work,” the former Miami Heat general manager said. “I would say there are several opportunities out there, the Wolves’ position being one, that intrigue me.”
Besides ex-Timberwolves coach Randy Wittman, who is a sure bet, the latest names mentioned as possible assistants for former Wolves coach Flip Saunders, who will coach the Washington Wizards next season, are former NBA head coaches Sam Mitchell, Terry Porter and Eric Musselman.
