Really the Wolves need Taylor to step down as owner and then get rid of Kahn. Kahn's an incompetent GM and Taylor is a lousy owner.
In order to step down as owner there needs to be a buyer. Taylor's trying to sell for a couple years, but it seems like he's having trouble finding a buyer who will commit to keeping the team in MN. Over the summer there was a rumor he'd found one that would allow him to step away over a period of 2-3 years, but that seems to have fallen apart.
I will say that after costing himself a chance to hire Dennis Lindsey (former Spurs assistant GM, current Jazz GM) due to an unwillingness to pump money into revamping the player evaluation section of the front office, he seems to have listened to Adelman on the issue, particularly when it comes to beyond the box score type statistics.
I'd prefer Kahn be fired, but despite all his faults, he's finally managed to cobble together a nice supporting cast for Love, brought in one of the better NBA coaches in recent memory, and he's done so under budget (the budget probably being the reason he was hired in the first place). I think he'll keep his job because of that, but I'd much rather see them bring in someone with some people skills and talent evaluation acumen.
