HOUSTON — Houston Rockets assistant Elston Turner has had a second interview to become the next coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Turner told KRIV-TV in Houston that he met Saturday in Las Vegas with Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn.

"David and I met Saturday in Las Vegas," Turner said. "There are a lot of guys who would like this job and a lot of guys who applied for it.

"I'm blessed I was called back."


Turner joined the Rockets organization two years ago when Rick Adelman was named head coach.

Prior to that Turner worked for Adelman for six years in Sacramento and before that he was with the Portland Trailblazers as an assistant coach for four years.

As a player, Turner had an eight-year NBAcareer with three teams in the 1980s after playing at the University of Mississippi.
