Minnesota owner Glen Taylor revealed on Saturday that he gave Kevin McHale a raise well above his salary as vice president of basketball operations to coach the team.
Taylor is reportedly fine with McHale sticking on the sidelines past this season as well, although it'll be up to the coach.
"We thought these guys could play competitively against most teams," Taylor said. "For some reason or another, it has just taken longer to get this going than we anticipated. It might have something to do with Kevin's coaching. But, just a lot of good things are happening right now."
