“We met last night and had another good meeting. Due to his travel schedule, probably won’t be able to see each other until next week.”
“Nothing is going to happen this week, I will assure you all of that. Nothing. I don’t have a timetable; I don’t think it would be appropriate to have a timetable. Again, this is my fault; I created a day-to-day aspect of it that I would like to pull back from.”
“The most important thing is to do this the right way,” Kahn said after watching pre-draft workouts at Target Center on Wednesday morning. “I don’t have a timetable. I don’t think it’d be appropriate to have a timetable. You cannot allow yourself to be driven by schedule in making those types of decisions. You need to be driven by the process and make sure the process delivers the best result. There’s really nothing I sense or feel that means it has to happen now.
“I’m a big believer in thoroughness and detail and preparation.”
Former Phoenix Suns and Seattle SuperSonics coach Paul Westphal is the reported front-runner for the only current head coaching vacancy, with the Sacramento Kings, who are expected to fill it by early next week.
The Wolves have kept abreast of that situation, but with the focus on the June 25 NBA draft, Kahn repeated that he has no deadline for making a decision.
Even if he wanted to, Kahn said he doesn’t have “the bandwidth” to start a coaching search while simultaneously preparing for a draft in which the Wolves have three first-round picks.
I think: He’s done as coach of the Timberwolves. If there were even a scant chance he was returning as coach, he would be there watching prospective Wolves.
