Minnesota Timberwolves Notes, Quotes 2009-11-25

Minnesota Timberwolves Notes, Quotes 2009-11-25--Wolves coach Kurt Rambis stopped by the Lakers' training facility after practice Monday. The Clippers' media game notes said Rick Carlisle would speak outside the Wolves' locker room at 6:15 p.m. as part of the customary pregame coaches availability.

Is there something we should know about?

"I saw some of the guys, got to talk to Mitch and Phil and Jeanie," Rambis said, referring to general manager Mitch Kupchak, coach Phil Jackson and executive vice president Jeanie Buss. "What did you think I was doing there?"

Rambis returned to Staples Center -- where he worked for much of the last decade -- for the second time in three weeks on Monday. But he won't face his former Lakers team for the first time until a Dec. 11 game there.

"It'll be a different night when we play the Lakers because I'll get my championship ring that night," said Rambis, who will be the last to receive his now that Houston's Trevor Ariza already made his first visit to Staples. "I'll be coaching against the Lakers, a team that I was with for a long period of time, a coaching staff I was with for a long time. So it'll be a little different."

--The Wolves will play a late 8:30 p.m. home game Central time Friday against Phoenix, as previously scheduled. Except nobody but the relative few at Target Center will see it. The game was scheduled for a late start because it was supposed to be part of ESPN's doubleheader that night. Instead, ESPN scratched a team that started the season 1-13 and instead will show Oklahoma City-Milwaukee in a game that features budding Thunder superstar Kevin Durant and Bucks rookie sensation Brandon Jennings. Word that the game had been bumped from the national-television schedule was slow in reaching rookie guard Jonny Flynn.

"That's the first time I heard about," he said. "It's all about TV, who people want to see play. That's ... just how it is. That's just television."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We have no pirates here." -- Wolves executive vice president of basketball operations David Kahn when asked how he keeps this season's players from feeling they're walking the plank this season while the team waits for the free agency bonanza next summer.
