It appears Kevin McHale’s days with the Minnesota Timberwolves are over. McHale, who has spent the last 15 years with the team, is reportedly not returning to the team according to team sources. Also confirming the report is the recent Twitter update by Timberwolves forward Kevin Love. McHale’s role with the team changed in December of 2008 as he stepped down from his VP of Basketball Operations post to take the coaching reigns of the team. The Timberwolves finished with season record of 24-58 (20-42 under McHale).
Less than a month ago, the team hired David Kahn to take over as GM and VP of Basketball Operations. As recent as Monday, Kahn was still undecided as to whether McHale would remain as coach. As to whether the McHale-Timberwolves divorce was a team decision or one made by McHale is still unknown.
