The Wolves have hired David Vanterpool as an assistant coach.
Vanterpool was a popular name on the interview circuit this summer but ultimately did not land a head coaching job. An assistant with Portland for the last seven seasons, one would expect that Vanterpool's responsibilities will increase in Minnesota.

The Wolves are hiring Blazers assistant David Vanterpool as associate head coach.
It is believed that Vanterpool will run the defense while also playing a key role in support of head coach Ryan Saunders. This is a fantastic hire by the Wolves as Vanterpool was one of the more sought after assistant coaches this summer. Vanterpool interviewed with the Suns and Cavs, in addition to the Wolves, for their head coaching openings, and makes for a quality pairing with Saunders.
