Adelman May Step Down In Offseason, Wolves Could Pursue Hoiberg

Rick Adelman nearly walked away from coaching last offseason and sources say he's convinced more than a few people in team circles that he'll opt out of the final season of his deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Adelman is 67 and his wife has been dealing with a persistent illness.

Fred Hoiberg is widely regarded as the most NBA-ready coach in college and he was an executive with the Wolves for four years before leaving for Iowa State. There is growing buzz coming out of Minnesota that the team will pursue Hoiberg if Adelman leaves.

J.P. Macura Considering Minnesota, Creighton, Xavier, Purdue, Iowa State

J.P. Macura has narrowed his list of schools to Minnesota, Creighton, Xavier, Purdue and Iowa State.

Macura will take an official visit to Xavier on Sept. 6 and likely Iowa State on Sept. 15.

The 6-foot-5 Macura eliminated Butler from consideration when Brad Stevens took the Boston Celtics job.

“I had a good relationship with the new head coach and most of the players when I went on a visit,” Macura told Gopherhole.com. “It is hard to say no to them, but I think it was a good choice because Brad (Stevens) is not there and that is a huge, huge thing for him to be there.”
