Dave Joerger Declines Timberwolves Offer, Will Remain in Memphis

In a surprising turn of events, Dave Joerger has decided not to continue to pursue the Wolves head coaching job, and will instead remain in Memphis.

This comes as a bit of a shock, since it appeared that Memphis didn't want him anymore, but I guess we were wrong:

This deal was never done, as nothing is ever done with the Wolves until it's done.

It is supremely disappointing, though, that the process got as far as it did only to fall apart at this point. Perhaps he wants to force the Grizzlies to fire him? Twitter seems to think there is more to this than meets the eye.

I have no idea where the Wolves will go from here.

More to come.
