McHale Asked to Stay Away from Predraft Workouts

Not exactly a vote of confidence for the T-Wolves coach: “NBA executives Larry Bird and Danny Ainge on Monday attended predraft workouts organized by the Timberwolves at Target Center. But former Celtics teammate Kevin McHale was missing…Until it’s determined whether McHale will coach next season, [new president of basketball operations David Kahn] said the presence of the man who has led the Wolves for the past 15 years would be too awkward during these predraft workouts. ‘We’re still very much in a process to determine if he — or whoever — will coach,’ Kahn said. ‘Until that process plays itself out, I think it would put too much pressure on him, and it’d probably make it very uncomfortable with other people here. I think it’s not appropriate yet until we resolve it. It’d be more appropriate once we have it resolved.’”

    “in a process to determine if he — or whoever — will coach”…. Does this mean the wolves could have NO coach? I’d be down to watch that.

    This piece is so out of context. McHale and Kahn had dinner last week. Kevin just returned from his family cabin in Hibbing, MN. Kahn and Kevin had decided to meet again this week to further discuss coaching. But it is not like the Wolves aren’t represented. Hoiberg and Stack were (are) at the group workouts. Both will be at the Euro workouts. McHale knows the players in the draft.
