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.
