Sources: T'wolves hire Adelman

10

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Rick Adelman coached four teams in his first two decades in the NBA, each time taking a year off before starting his next journey. He didn't wait nearly as long to take over perhaps his most challenging job yet. The Minnesota Timberwolves are bringing Adelman in to try and turn around one of the NBA's most downtrodden franchises. Two people with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press on Monday that the team and the 65-year-old Adelman have agreed on terms and a contract is expected to be signed soon. The people requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. Adelman replaces Kurt Rambis, who lasted just two seasons on the job. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/basketball/nba/09/12/rick.adelman.timberwolves.adelman.ap/index.html

Poor coaching decisions have derailed the Pistons

31

Looking at the way the Detroit Pistons have performed during their last 7 games ... it should now be relatively easy for others to see that the main reason this team has wallowed in the bottom third of the Eastern Conference Standings, to this point this season, has been the relatively poor job done by John Kuester and the Lack of Team Cohesion his personnel decisions have fostered. The stark reality for the Pistons this year is that … There has always been more than enough legitimate NBA talent on-hand for Detroit to compete effectively for a lower tier playoff position in the Eastern Conference … as long as their head coach doesn’t muck it up by: I. Refusing to settle on one of many different possible solid 8-9 player rotations; and, II. Creating a series of needless internal conflicts with the best players on the team. … in contrast to what you may have been told by certain ’stats gurus’ who think that the Pistons’ main problem has been rooted elsewhere.
