He better off signing nellie and quiting, because nellie will take his position. GM/Coach

Although Brown is a great basketball mind, he's not a good fit for the Wolves.

He's an interesting coach, a guy who puts an emphasis on "playing the RIGHT WAY", a great fundamentals guy.

If the Wolves didn't have so much stock in Rubio, I'd actually say go for it, because he'd teach guys like Beasley maturity, a great work ethic, and a solid foundation of basketball basics.

However, Brown's shortcomings involve the improvisation of basketball, it's spontaneity, and free thinking. His style would handicap a creative point guard with strong court vision like a Jason Kidd, a Chris Paul, or a Ricky Rubio.

Ideally, to best suit Brown's strengths you'd want a half court team, who's most talented pieces lie at any position not named point guard.

I think Brown's days as a head coach are done (or at least should be done). He hasnt had great coaching stints as of late, and I do not think his style will do well in Minny. He needs to just hang it up.

i actually think brian shaw would be perfect for the position. i doubt kahn would go for it though since they already hired a guy from the lakers (rambis) and it didn't work out

I think this is a play by Kahn to show to the media that some high profile names are actually interested in the job. I don't think there is a chance in hell Brown gets the job under any circumstance.

I mean, for years Ainge did the same thing, and the Celtics were pitifully bad, and Pierce was literally going insane, until one day he turned all those assets into KG and Ray Allen. To be honest, now I am a believer in the "Isaiah plan," as it's so damn hard to find the right players in the draft and the free agency.

That said, I don't think Minny is going anywhere, especially if they go with Larry Brown.
