T'Wolves Owner Glen Taylor Discusses Potential Sale, Future Of David Kahn
Published April 15, 2013
Q: David Kahn's contract expires this summer. Have you thought much about whether you want to retain him as the team's president of basketball operations?
Taylor: I haven't come to the time to make a decision on that. ... I don't have a time frame to address David's situation. He and I have been talking about the draft and other things as we go into the offseason. At some point, I know I need to make a decision.
Q: What's the latest on your attempts to sell the team?
Taylor: I haven't come up with anybody who meets all the needs. One of my problems is that I haven't found anybody who lives in Minnesota or has a Minnesota background. The interest has come from people outside the state. I'm interested in a local person buying the team on a limited-partner basis. Right now, I don't have a strong feeling that I want to get rid of the team. I still enjoy it. I was thinking of a long run to try to find a successor, but I might keep things the way they are.
Q: Flip Saunders was helping you find an ownership group. Have you had talks with him about rejoining the Wolves?
Taylor: First of all, Flip was just trying to help a friend who had an outside group, but that group never submitted a bid. I have a coach and I have a GM. Me and Flip have not talked about those things. What we talk about mostly is his work at ESPN and what's going on in the league (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 4/13).
