MINNEAPOLIS -- With the Memphis Grizzlies front office in turmoil, the Minnesota Timberwolves are considering trying to lure coach Dave Joerger away to coach the team in his home state. Air Jordan 3 Nz Cheap . The Timberwolves have received permission to interview Joerger for their head coaching vacancy, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The people requested anonymity because the Timberwolves are not commenting publicly on their coaching candidates. Joerger, who is from Staples, Minnesota, and went to college at Division-II Minnesota State, Moorhead, went 50-32 in his first season as Grizzlies coach last year. After a rough start while the team transitioned from coaching veteran Lionel Hollins to the first-timer Joerger, the Grizzlies pulled together, overcame several injuries to key players and surged to the seventh seed in the hyper-competitive Western Conference. But after losing in the first round of the playoffs to the Oklahoma City Thunder, owner Robert Pera made the surprising decision to overhaul the front office. He fired CEO Jason Levien and director of player personnel Stu Lash, two moves that immediately called into question Joergers job security. Joerger goes way back with Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders. As a young coach trying to make his way up the ladder, Joerger came to watch Saunders, who coached the Timberwolves from 1995-2005, run practices. The two formed a mutual respect which lasts to this day. Saunders, who coached in the CBA before breaking into the NBA, has long had an affinity for coaches who had to grind it out in the minor leagues, believing they learn not only how to coach, but to run an organization. Joerger won championships in the NBDL, the International Basketball Association and the CBA before joining the Grizzlies as an assistant to Lionel Hollins. Joergers experience as a head coach last year with the Grizzlies helps him fit the profile Saunders is looking for in a replacement for Rick Adelman, who retired last month. Saunders has said he wants a proven coach who knows the demands of running an NBA team, including handling questions from the media. The latter qualification is of particular concern for the Wolves right now with star forward Kevin Love set to opt out of his contract after next season. The Wolves are considering all their options with Love, including potentially trading him this summer. If the Wolves do not trade Love, they will head into the season with one of the major storylines in the league, one sure to draw attention from media all across the country. Thats part of the reason Saunders is reluctant to turn over the keys to a first-time head coach. The Wolves interest in Joerger was first reported by the Star Tribune of Minneapolis. The Timberwolves opening has also been linked to Hollins and college coaching stars such as Michigan States Tom Izzo, Floridas Billy Donovan and Iowa States Fred Hoiberg. Saunders has yet to offer the job to anyone, but it is believed that the uncertainty surrounding Love has caused some of the more high profile names on Saunders list to give tepid responses to inquiries. The situation with Love in Minnesota pales in comparison to the upheaval in Memphis, and the opportunity to bring his family back to his home state could be enough to convince Joerger to make the move if an offer comes his way. The two sides were working Wednesday to set up a meeting, which could come as soon as Thursday. Wholesale Air Jordan 3 Nz . Al Harrington, another former Knicks forward, scored 22 of his 24 points after halftime for the Nuggets, allowing them to withstand Anthonys attempt to rally the Knicks after his poor shooting had them behind until the final minutes of regulation.

The Sky Sports F1 analyst successfully tipped 9/4 shot Nico Rosberg to land the season opener in Australia for Mercedes, his fourth successive race win, but believes it is Hamiltons turn to top the podium under the floodlights at Bahrains Sakhir circuit on Sunday.Herbert said: Lewis was the fastest man in every session in Melbourne, except the race. This weekend I expect him to put that right and take what would be a third consecutive Bahrain GP win. Hes still the man to catch, even if his poor start last time out allowed his team mate to take the spoils.

Herbert added: The red flag in Australia cost Nico a chance to finish in the top six, so fingers crossed that he gets some better luck this weekend. Force India traditionally go well in Bahrain, so its time for the Hulk to let rip in the desert!The F1 pundit also saw enough from rookie Manor driver Pascal Wehrlein to suggest he could finish in the points at odds of 22/1 with Sky Bet. You might think Im crazy but the long straights in Bahrain will suit the Mercedes engine that Manor are using this season, and the young German showed on his debut in Australia that hes good enough to spring a surprise or two this season, said Herbert.With brake wear likely to be an issue for many of the cars, could a few retirements allow Wehrlein to bag his first points in F1?Johnny Herberts Charity tips this season are supporting Sporting Memories.
