02:51 PM ET 06.10 | New Minnesota president Flip Saunders understands that the NBA is about making adjustments on the fly, but he believes that one adjustment he won't have to consider for his team is at head coach. Saunders told NBA.com that coach Rick Adelman should remain with the team rather than stepping down to spent time with his ill wife, Mary Kay. Adelman missed several weeks on the job during the 2012-13 season to spend time with his wife, but her health appears to be on the upswing, giving her husband the ability to worry about coaching a team looking to turn around its fortunes this year. "We've talked every day, every other day," Saunders said of Adelman. "He talks about his staff, he talks about players. We were talking the other day about offenses that I ran, offenses that he ran. Talking just the basketball talk. The talks that we've had leads me to believe that he's going to be back."

Make your decision fast because the good coaches may be gone soon once Adelman choses not to come back.
