08:06 AM ET 06.23 | Admitting only days ago that the situation was "at minimum" awkward, David Khan has apparently decided to do something about it. 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, sources said. ... Kahn told reporters he'd made the unusual request of asking Rambis to file a written report to him on changes Rambis would make if he returned as coach. He also said Rambis won't attend the Timberwolves' draft on Thursday night. Kahn had wanted Rambis to become a better communicator with players. He also wanted him to design an offense away from the triangle and toward the open-court talents of rookie point guard Ricky Rubio.

Kurt thought he was coaching the Minneapolis Lakers I guess. The triangle worked for Phil in LA, not so in Minny. Is there an opening on Mike Brown's staff for the former Laker, Rambis?

The close we get to the draft, the comments become more stressful, the players get taller and the owners ... well just look at this owner for example.
