Report: Laimbeer and Theus to Minnesota

Word is that Kurt Rambis is building his coaching staff with some recognizable names: “A good league source tells me new Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis has chosen two notable names to supplement top assistant coach Dave Wohl on his staff: Bill Laimbeer and Reggie Theus. That’s a staff certainly with some name recognition now. Laimbeer unexpectedly quit his job as the Detroit Shock’s head coach and general manager in June after winning three WNBA titles in seven seasons as the franchise’s coach, presumably to pursue NBA coaching opportunities. He has never coached in the NBA.”
