Report: Wolves Fire Kahn And Bring Saunders In
NBA.com‘s Steve Aschburner is reporting that the Wolves have fired general manager David Kahn, and former head coach Flip Saunders will likely return in Kahn’s role.
Saunders is expected to return to the Wolves as the team’s next president of basketball operations
According to league sources, 58-year-old Saunders has been negotiating a contract that, with option years, could run through the 2017-18 season and could be worth more than $9 million over the full five years, according to league sources.
The move, which could become official as early as next week would end David Kahn‘s tenure after four seasons and an 89-223 record during which the Timberwolves’ failure to reach the playoffs stretched to nine consecutive seasons.
