Sam Mitchell: “If The Right Opportunity Is Presented With The Right People I’ll Take A Look At It”
Sam Mitchell joins Jason and Randy to discuss the rumors of him potentially joining the Minnesota Timberwolves as their new head coach.
Coach Mitchell shared what it would take to get him back into coaching. “It’s flattering to have my name out there. If the right opportunity is presented with the right people then I’ll take a look at it. Minnesota would be a great opportunity because of relationships.”
He talks about the Timberwolves situation and the challenges facing teams looking for new head coaches right now. Speaking on Kevin Love, Sam said, “Nobody is in the business of making another team better while you’re getting bad. Worst case scenario you hold on to him and he walks and you have 17 million under the cap you can use to spread out among your current players or free agents. If you don’t get the right deal then you don’t do a deal.”
Sam also shared NBA wants to see in the finals, what makes the Spurs so special, and gives his thoughts on the conference finals so far.
