Timberwolves fire Kurt Rambis, will they hire Bill Laimbeer as head coach?


Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

"Minnesota Timberwolves general manager David Kahn has decided to fire coach Kurt Rambis, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.Kahn isn’t expected to announce the decision until after Thursday’s NBA draft, but he’s already begun collecting information on prospective replacements for Rambis, including University of Washington coach Lorenzo Romar, sources said. The Timberwolves have gathered background on Romar for several weeks, and are expected to make him a candidate to replace Rambis."

Besides Romar, could Bill Laimbeer be a candidate? Here’s what Kahn told me at the lottery:

"“There’s no question in my mind, Bill Laimbeer’s capable of being an NBA head coach,” Kahn said.Today?“Absolutely.”"
