Wolves' Rick Adelman assembles staff
MINNEAPOLIS -- Rick Adelman is bringing plenty of familiar faces with him to the Minnesota Timberwolves coaching staff.
Adelman announced on Wednesday that Terry Porter, Jack Sikma, T.R. Dunn and Bill Bayno will join him as assistants on his staff.
Porter interviewed for the head coaching position in Minnesota before it was given to Adelman. The former point guard played for Adelman with the Portland Trail Blazers and served as an assistant on his staff with the Sacramento Kings.
Dunn has worked with Adelman since his days in Sacramento, and Sikma spent the last four seasons with him in Houston.
Bayno spent the previous five years as a highly regarded assistant in Portland.
The Wolves also added Adelman's son R.J. as director of player personnel and his son David as a player development coach.
