Reaction: Wolves' Kahn out, Saunders in


Opinions about David Kahn being fired by the Timberwolves and replaced by Flip Saunders are running rampant in newspapers, blogs and social media sites. Here's a taste of what's being said.

Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune writes that Saunders "brings competency and credibility" to the Wolves.

Sid Hartman believes Wolves owner Glen Taylor righted two wrongs by firing Kahn and bring Saunders back.

Bob Sansevere of the Pioneer Press says Saunders needs to do whatever he can to coexist with head coach Rick Adelman, assuming Adelman returns next season.

"Don't screw up." That's the message to Saunders from Tom Powers.

An article says Kahn's biggest mistake was failing to give Kevin Love a five-year maximum contract.
