Rick Adelman will not return as head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
This was expected as Adelman said that he wanted to spend more time with his ailing wife and his family. He took some time off from coaching last year because of his wife's illness. The parting is mutual and the team obviously wishes him the best of luck.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Korean slugger Byung-ho Park is reportedly traveling to Minnesota to talk with the Twins.
With a $12.85M winning bid, the Twins now have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Park and his agent. If they don't, they will be refunded the money and Park will return to the KBO. The Korean slugger batted .343/.436/.714 with 53 home runs last season for the Nexen Heroes and hit 52 the year before. The KBO is notoriously hitter-friendly, so take those numbers with a grain of salt. He should still be able to hit for power, but given the dimensions of Target Field, 25 home runs is more of a realistic expectation. Analysis: Howard Bender
