10:34 AM ET 02.23 | If Rick Adelman decides he has had enough after three years not being able to coach the Timberwolves into the playoffs, the logical target as his replacement remains Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg, the former Wolves shooting guard and vice president. There is some question, though, whether the Wolves could lure Hoiberg from his hometown of Ames, Iowa. If not, Wolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders could return to courtside.

tough to start thinking about coaching replacements when their best players long term future is cloudy.
I mean do you bring in a coach who knows how to use a stretch 4? do you bring in a guy with their own system and force the player to adapt?
I wouldn't start messing with the coaching staff til they really figure out what they are doing with love

I think they need to try a new coach before they have to start breaking up this unit. That's one tweak you can make that may have a big impact.

Problem is they haven't made the playoffs in a long time
and I don't know if this core can be any better

That's why I think they need a different coach. This team is WAY under performing. Something needs to be tweaked. They need a defensive minded coach to hold them accountable.
