Lakers Asst. Coach Rambis to Coach Minnesota Timberwolves
ESPN and the LA Times' Mark Medina are reporting that sources say that Lakers assistant coach Kurt Rambis will become the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. A news conference will be held on Tuesday to announce the deal. Reportedly Rambis and the Wolves agreed to a four-year, $8 million deal. Rambis will be taking over for Kevin McHale who coincidentally enough clotheslined Rambis during the 1984 Finals when they were playing for the Lakers and Celtics respectively.
