Might the Lockout Affect David Kahn's Future?


We've been kicking around how the Wolves coaching situation is likely being influenced by Taylor's desire to see how the lockout unfolds, most recently in Andy G's tongue-in-cheek, Olive-Stone-like thread on the subject. My opinion, and it's just that, is that it's simply a matter of Papa Glen seeing how much the lockout bleeds out of Rambis' deal before he needs to cut a check.

Anyway, this leads me to consider the other partner-in-crime in 32-132: David Kahn. Because if I recall correctly, David Kahn was given a three-year-deal when he was hired in 2009. That would mean this coming season is his "contract year." What's weird, of course, is there might not be a season.

First, I need to concede I'm not quite sure if he's on a three-year deal. Because I've tried searching for it, and the best I can do is a TWolvesblog post pointing out that numerous Rambis-based news articles mention Kahn's three-year deal. So outside of that, I'm just going off memory. I'm sure somebody here knows for sure. If I'm mistaken, then this post is probably moot. (Alternatively, if this has already turned into a McHaleian unwritten handshake deal between Kahn and Taylor, God help us...)

Anyway, this leads to the question of what to do should the season (or most of it) be eliminated? I think many of us thought one more bad year might be it for Kahn (maybe not a safe assumption with Papa Glen running the show, granted). But what if there's no season? Surely Taylor can't extend the guy after 32-132. OTOH, would Glen Taylor simply bid adieu and hire somebody else next spring?

So, is this Kahn's contract season? And if so, and the lockout wipes most-to-all-of-it out, what becomes of him?
