Dave Joerger addressed rumors of him potentially taking over as the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, saying that his focus is on getting the Sacramento Kings to the playoffs.
“Obviously I’m a Minnesota kid, so it’s interesting, but at the same time, my focus is right here, right now. I mean, we’re having a great time with our guys...we have an identity, and we’re giving ourselves a chance to be in the playoff race. I think every coach and every player, that’s all they ever want in their careers, is an opportunity to be in the playoffs, and that’s really where my mindset is now.”
Joerger previously interviewed for the Timberwolves job in 2014, but ultimately decided to return to the Grizzlies.
