The Minnesota Timberwolves have run their head coaching search under a cloak of secrecy, but the team interviewed Lionel Hollins three weeks ago.

The two sides have not progressed because Hollins is a candidate for the Cleveland Cavaliers' job.

Flip Saunders also informally discussed the Timberwolves' vacancy with Tom Izzo and Fred Hoiberg, but talks did not go beyond that.

Rick Adelman retired as head coach after the season.
