According to Inside Hoops, owner Glen Taylor and the Minnesota Timberwolves have picked up an option to bring back David Kahn for another season.
This is no surprise move. Kahn’s work still isn’t over here in Minnesota, whether we like it or not. He’s done some good things, he’s done some bad things, just like any other GM out there. He promised us Ricky Rubio, and he brought him here. But he’s also fumbled multiple drafts and has become one of the NBA’s biggest laughs of an executive.
This offseason will be critical in Kahn’s tenure. Entering his fourth year, he’s acquired some nice pieces to form a solid young core in Rubio, Love and Pekovic. He’s surrounded those three with integral role players like Ridnour, Barea and Williams. But there are a lot of question marks on the roster. It’s time to decide if they want to shed some cap space and lose some valuable pieces like Michael Beasley or spend more for some veteran players and compete for the playoffs for the first time in years.
The man behind those decisions will be Kahn. We’ve put our trust in him for three years already and he’s taken the reigns. Now we have to let him finish what he started or all the promises will simply be left empty.
