Jerry Zgota of the Star Tribune has confirmed that according to two sources the Timberwolves have hired Rick Adelman as their new head basketball coach. This does not come as a surprise to some who saw yesterday that Kevin Love tweeted, “Houston, We have a coach.” Kevin was a little pre-mature with his statement but a day later the truth comes out and Adelman is the new coach. Adelman is a great hire for the Wolves as he has experience working with young players and a lot of experience as a head coach in the NBA.

UPDATE: Adelman’s contract is for 3 years and $15M with an option for a 4th year. I believe that includes this season which is still in question due to the lockout.
