MINNEAPOLIS -- While the rest of the NBA and their own fans clamour for the Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS -- While the rest of the NBA and their own fans clamour for the Minnesota Timberwolves to hire a coach and make a move with Kevin Love, the organization is remaining patient with two decisions that could determine the fate of their franchise for the next five years. Yan Gomes Jersey . The team is letting the search for a replacement for the retired Rick Adelman play out and has yet to see any potential trade talks involving Love, who can opt out after next season, or any of its other players heat up, general manager Milt Newton said on Thursday. The biggest domino to fall is Love, the three-time All-Star power forward who has been the face of the franchise for the last five years. Love can become a free agent next summer, prompting trade rumours to run rampant around one of the best power forwards in the league. The market figures to pick up as the draft approaches at the end of June, but the Timberwolves have not ruled out keeping Love and making enough moves to bolster the roster and convince him that he should sign a contract to stay in Minnesota, where he can make more money than anywhere else. "Well do whats best for the organization," Newton said. "Hes a hell of a player, a hell of a talent. Our first inclination is to keep him on board. If thats not the case, you best believe well be a better team based on what happens." The Timberwolves havent made the playoffs in 10 seasons, so if they do decide to trade their best player, they want to avoid a complete rebuild while doing it. A combination of high draft picks and solid veterans would likely be a starting point for the bidding. Hiring the right coach would be the first step in setting a new tone for Love. The Wolves interviewed coach Dave Joerger last week, but he decided to stay with the Grizzlies. The Wolves have had discussions with several other candidates, including Lionel Hollins, Sam Mitchell and Vinny Del Negro, who coached the Clippers and Bulls but is highly unlikely to get the job. Newton reiterated comments president of basketball operations Flip Saunders has made previously that the Wolves dont necessarily need to have a replacement hired by the draft. "Were not rushed for time to select a coach, the process will take care of itself," Newton said, before smiling to deliver a quick jab. "I guarantee we will have one before the season starts next year." The Wolves also held their first round of pre-draft workouts on Thursday, hosting a handful of players that could be second-round picks or undrafted free agents, including Minnesota guard Austin Hollins, Louisville forward Chane Behanan and UMass point guard Chaz Williams. The Timberwolves have three second-round picks in the draft, which made Thursdays workout an important day for a team that figures to be busy well into the night on June 26. "Not all the second-round picks are probably going to be on the team next year, so you want to be in a position to select guys and have them play in Europe or what have you," Newton said. "The players that we had today are definitely those level players that we would look at. "At the end of the day, you may have a guy that really impresses you, plays well in the summer league and finds a spot onto your team." Satchel Paige Jersey . Neither striker Demba Ba nor Fernando Torres came close to scoring as Chelsea was left unsuccessfully appealing for penalties in this drab penultimate game of the season. "Our strikers are good strikers, no doubt about that, but players with some specific qualities," Mourinho said. Edwin Encarnacion Jersey . - Wesley Matthews got a chance to practice his bow-and-arrow 3-point celebration on Sunday night. . -- Canadas Nicole Vandermade won the Four Winds Invitational on Sunday for her first Symetra Tour title, closing with a 4-under 68 for a one-stroke victory.For the first time in his illustrious career, Martin Brodeur will appear in an NHL game for a team other than the New Jersey Devils. The NHLs all-time leader in wins and shutouts is slated to make his debut for the St. Louis Blues in Thursday nights matchup with the team thats tied with them atop the Central Division, the Nashville Predators. With Brian Elliott out indefinitely because of a knee injury, St. Louis signed Brodeur to a one-year deal Tuesday. The 42-year-old netminder holds most of the leagues goaltending marks, most notably 688 wins, 124 shutouts and 1,259 appearances - all with New Jersey. Hes also won four Vezina Trophies, three Stanley Cups and a pair of gold medals with Team Canada. Ive been waiting for a great opportunity, and it came from the Blues, Brodeur told the leagues official website. I just want to have fun. Ive got nothing to prove to myself. I just want to go out and enjoy the season and enjoy the winning like I was able to do in New Jersey for a lot of years. Brodeur hasnt played in the NHL since the Devils 2013-14 season finale April 13, a 3-2 win over Boston. He began skating with the Blues on Friday. The future Hall of Famer will try to help St. Louis (16-7-2) bounce back from its first regulation loss in six games. Jake Allen was in net for a 4-1 defeat in Chicago on Wednesday that featured three Blackhawks goals in the first 5 1/2 minutes of the third period. The Blues were 4-0-1 before that defeat and had taken a season high-tying three in a row on the road. St. Louis attempt to get back into the win column will come against a Nashville team thats won six straight at home and is 10-1-1 there this season. The Blues, who split two home matchups with the Predators in November, are seeking a seventh consecutive victory in Nashville. They outscored the Predators by a combined 12-3 in last seasons three visits, but Nashville (16-6-2) has apppeared far more competitive in its first campaign under Peter Laviolette. Cody Allen Jersey. It had won a season-high four in a row - despite scoring a combined three goals in the final two victories - before a 2-1 loss at Carolina on Tuesday. Mike Ribeiro tallied his second goal in as many games with 4:46 remaining, but the Predators couldnt find the equalizer despite outshooting the Hurricanes 15-6 in the final period. There werent a lot of Grade-A opportunities for us. They were pretty quick to defense and shutting things down. We can be better, but we couldnt catch them, Laviolette said. Nashville got a tying goal late in the second period Nov. 13 in St. Louis but the Blues Paul Stastny scored the lone one in the third in his teams 4-3 victory. The four goals match the most given up this season by Pekka Rinne, 16-4-1 with a 1.83 goals-against average. James Neal had the tiebreaking goal in the final period and an assist in the Predators 2-1 victory at the Scottrade Center on Nov. 8, but he doesnt have a point in his last seven contests. Neal has four goals and three assists in his last seven games against St. Louis. The Blues Vladimir Tarasenko has three goals and five assists in his last six matchups with Nashville. Brodeur will face the Predators for the first time since a 5-0 victory in New Jersey on Nov. 10, 2013, his 123rd career shutout. Nashville last won seven in a row at home Oct. 29-Nov. 23, 2009.
