MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kurt Rambis has reached an agreement to become the new head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The team said terms would not be disclosed, but scheduled a news
conference for later Monday. Rambis is scheduled to be introduced
as coach on Tuesday.
The 51-year-old Rambis has been an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers for most of the past seven seasons. He's also a former champion with the Lakers.
He replaces Kevin McHale, who was let go seven weeks ago. Rambis
was one of three finalists, with TV commentator and former NBA star
Mark Jackson and Houston assistant Elston Turner.
