Kurt Rambis fired by Minnesota

Published

On Tuesday the Minnesota Timberwolves fired head coach Kurt Rambis, after a poor two seasons as their main man. The Timberwolves were the worst team in the NBA last season, with a record of 17-65, which added to Rambis record in his first season gave him an overall record of 32-132 with Minnesota.

‘Wolves president of basketball operations, David Kahn, said “I want to thank Kurt for his contributions to our franchise and wish him well in the future.” For Kahn Rambis’ arrival signalled that his franchise were serious about building a championship-contending team, however that doesn’t seem to have happened, with the team consistently scrapping to stay off the bottom of the overall league standings in the last two seasons.

Kahn added “We have accumulated a solid nucleus of young talent with a bright future during the last two years. I am hopeful Kurt receives his share of the credit for this.” This move by the T’Wolves means that owner Glen Taylor will be liable for the last two years of Rambis’ four-year contract, worth an estimated $4m. This could prove costly if there is a lockout and games are lost.
