MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Two people with knowledge of the decision tell The Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves have decided they want Memphis coach Dave Joerger to be their next head coach. Now all that stands in the way of that happening are coming to an agreement on a contract and discussing potential compensation with the Grizzlies.

The people requested anonymity because the Timberwolves are not commenting publicly on their search.

Joerger met with Timberwolves leadership, including owner Glen Taylor, on Saturday evening before returning to Memphis. He still has two years on his contract with the Grizzlies, but Memphis owner Robert Pera is believed to be considering a coaching change after he recently fired two top executives.

The Minnesota-born Joerger went 50-32 in his first season as Grizzlies coach.
