Justin Rogers from Full-Court Press found this nugget in the St. Paul Pioneer-Press:
Pssst: The Gophers missed out on hiring Flip Saunders because of a timing issue with the NBA playoffs, but don't think the Detroit Pistons coach couldn't be enticed to return to the Timberwolves if he were given dual responsibilities of coach and general manager.
The team that liked Flip so much that they fired him mid-season now wants to bring him back to be their GM? Let me guess, because Kevin McHale is stepping down to come out of retirement and play next to KG? Because I think that will happen first.
