McHale to return next season

Michael Rand/Star Tribune reports on Kevin McHale's press conference from this morning:

Timberwolves Vice President Kevin McHale said at a postseason news conference today that he will stay on the job next season. He also said he "wants to have coach Randy Wittman back" and said there are no plans to trade Kevin Garnett in the offseason.

"It was a bad season," McHale said of the squad's 32-50 record, which included a 12-30 finish under Wittman after Dwane Casey was fired after going 20-20 in the first 40 games. "There's no other way you can say it. It starts with me."

Rand also lists other highlights from the press conference.
