Report: Bobby Jackson Close to Joining Rick Adelman's Staff

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

Bobby's probably heading to Minnesota.

The Kings organization has gone through sweeping changes this summer after the ownership change at the end of the season.  It appears there is still change to come.

According to a report from the StarTribune's Jerry Zgoda, Bobby Jackson is in contract talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves to join Rick Adelman's staff as a Player Development Coach.  Bobby previously held that position with Sacramento before being let go (along with every other Kings assistant) by new coach Michael Malone.  The organization said they were going to retain Jackson in another capacity, but it's clear that Jackson wants to continue to focus on his coaching career.

The job in Minnesota certainly offers a lot of appeal for Jackson.  Jackson went to college at the University of Minnesota and also played for Timberwolves GM Flip Saunders for a couple years.  He also played five years for Rick Adelman, during which he won the NBA's 6th Man of the Year award.

It is sad to see Bobby go, but despite his change in scenery, he will always be a Sacramento King.  Best of luck in Minnesota, Bobby.
