The Golden State Warriors fired their head coach today and even though everyone universally sees it as a terrible idea, they’ve put Mark Jackson on the market for someone else to hire. While he’s bound to get work again — probably sooner rather than later — there are certain places he won’t go.
According to Darren Wolfson from ESPN1500 in Minneapolis, the Minnesota Timberwolves will not be hiring Mark Jackson and probably won’t pursue him.
Gotten a few Jackson to #Twolves questions. Would bet heavily against that happening. Kahn’s not here anymore.

It’s ironic that the one thing that could get the Wolves the head coach they need is the guy who destroyed the franchise in the first place. Hiring Jackson would be a brilliant move as he turned the similarly structured Warriors around in two seasons and that’s exactly what the Wolves need right now.
But, because they’re the Timberwolves and are doomed to an eternity of awfulness and bafoonery, and won’t be seeking out Jackson’s help to show them the way to the light.
