MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have fired coach Kurt Rambis after two seasons on the job.


Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn announced the decision Tuesday. Kahn says it was a difficult decision to make, but the right one for the franchise.


Rambis was 32-132 in Minnesota, including an NBA-worst 17-65 last season.


The firing ends a drawn out process that started at the end of the season in April with Kahn saying he would take his time to make a decision.

Three months later, Kahn finally made the move. Rambis has two years left on the contract he signed in 2009.
