Rick Adelman said on Monday that he doesn't plan on coaching during the 11-12 season.
Adelman told the Statesman Journal newspaper in Salem, Ore., “It’s a hard grind in the NBA and I’ve been doing it for 20-plus years. I’m just looking forward to getting away from it.
“Right now I don’t plan on doing anything, just taking some time off.
“I don’t have any plans to (coach) next year, no.”
Adelman dismissed the notion that there was mutual interest between him and the Timberwolves.
“They had me interviewing a couple places that I never even went to,” he said. “It’s all part of it now. If you don’t have a job and you’ve coached in the league, the first thing that happens if a job opens up, they throw the same names out there.
“Sometimes you know things are happening, but until you hear from teams, I don’t believe a lot of things I read.”
