From Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune:

With three preseason games left beginning Sunday night in Sioux Falls against Milwaukee, Rambis was asked when -- or if -- he'd firm up that lineup by playing his starters together 35 or 40 minutes a game and settling on a firm reserve rotation.

"Everybody keeps asking me that," he said. "I don't think you solidify things with this young team in a short amount of time. There's so much growth, so much experience to be gained, and a lot of guys are playing well.

"I don't feel under pressure to come up with something and say, 'This is what we're going to stay with for the rest of the year.'"

And so, he experiments with different combinations and shuffles players on and off the floor.

 

From Tom Enlund/ Journal Sentinel:

With point guard Jonny Flynn expected to be sidelined until late November after having left hip surgery in July, Ridnour has started in all five of Minnesota’s exhibition games. Minnesota signed Ridnour to a free-agent contract last summer after he had played the previous two seasons with the Bucks.

In Minnesota’s first five exhibition games, Ridnour averaged 8.8 points, 4.4 assists and 25.2 minutes.

“He’s doing great,” said Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis, a former Los Angeles Lakers assistant. “He’s been terrific. We, meaning the Lakers, liked him for a long time and I enjoyed watching him play even back in Seattle…going back that far. He’s evolved in the NBA and has gotten better in his decision making and shot selection and shot making.

“The way I want to play, he fits in perfectly. He knows how to play and has good court instincts and good court vision. He’s a willing passer yet he can create his own shot and knock down open shots. He knows how to run the system.”
