When it's all sorted out, Flip's staff is expected to include former Wolves players Sam Mitchell and Sidney Lowe, although I'm not certain yet if either is a coach-in-waiting to take the job next. No word if one of Flip's former players, Chauncey Billups, will become that former coach-in-waiting and it's likely Flip's son Ryan will eventually join the staff. Minneapolis Star-Tribune

With star Kevin Love’s future in Minnesota in doubt, the Wolves now will resume a search process that has included interviews with, among others, former Toronto coach Sam Mitchell, who is a former Wolves forward, and Lionel Hollins, whom Joerger replaced in Memphis last summer. Joerger, 40, grew up in Staples, Minn., attended college in Moorhead and labored in basketball’s minor leagues — where he won five titles in seven years — for a decade before the Grizzlies hired him as an assistant coach in 2007 and promoted him to the head coach’s job a year ago.
