Adelman thought long and hard about Minnesota job

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- When Rick Adelman parted ways with the Houston Rockets in the spring, he said he thought he had one more coaching job left in him.

Most thought he would wait for the right opportunity with a veteran team on the brink of contending for an NBA title that has eluded him over 20 years in the business.

"I kept looking at this group and I thought, this could be a really good situation with the youth they have, the talent they have," Adelman said.

"You never know what you can do and I felt it was a great challenge and so I decided it's a good place, it's a good place to take the challenge up and try to turn things around."
