Report: Wolves will interview ex-Warriors coach Mark Jackson


On Monday, all the steam in the NBA was that Tom Thibodeau and Jeff Van Gundy were in a two-horse race to become the next head coach and team president of the Timberwolves.

Hold up a second, though, because ESPN is now chiming in with a fresh report that former Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson is on the Wolves' radar for a potential interview on Wednesday.

Jon Krawczynski adds that Jackson has familiarity with Minnesota because he was a finalist for the job when the Wolves elected to go with Kurt Rambis.

Jackson's coaching resume is short but impressive. He helped build the Warriors from 2011-14 into the team they are today. After back-to-back playoff appearances, Jackson was fired following the 2014-15 season. The next year the Warriors won the NBA title under first-year coach Steve Kerr.

The report from Monday regarding Thibodeau and Van Gundy also said the Wolves were looking to make a hire sooner than later, so stay tuned for what could be an eventful hiring process.
