Timberwolves Making ‘Significant Progress’ For Joerger

Dave Joerger

Per ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Minnesota Timberwolves have made “significant progress” and are “gathering momentum” in their quest for Memphis Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger.

The Wolves are restricted to offering draft picks and/or cash to Memphis to free Joerger from his contract with the Grizzlies. But one source said Thursday that Joerger landing in his home state with the Wolves is “the way this thing is headed.”

Joerger came up as the frontrunner this week, after Memphis parted ways with CEO Jason Levien.
