Trail Blazers assistant coach Monty Williams told the Oregonian today, that will interview for the Minnesota Timberwolves head coaching position, perhaps as early as this weekend. It is confirmed that the Timberwolves have received permission to interview Williams.
“I’m flattered,” Williams said. “I’m someone who wants to be a part of a rebuilding process. But at the same time, I’m still a Blazer. So, there’s initial excitement, but in reality, nothing has changed. I’m looking forward to the process.”
Williams, 37, has been an assistant in Portland for the past four seasons after spending one year as an intern at San Antonio. Williams had played 10 seasons in the NBA before knee problems forced him to retire in 2003.
