Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman, who has already considered stepping down twice this season, may quit this summer because of his wife’s ongoing health issues according to NBA.com.

Adelman, who missed 11 games in January to be with his wife, says he has been treated well by the franchise.

“They’ve been terrific with everything,” he said. “There’s a couple times I really struggled whether I should come back.”

He later added: “I’m sure I’ll be thinking more about it as we move on here (through the season).”

Adelman wouldn’t discuss whether he is coming back next season.

“It’s unfair for me to talk about that when I’m asking these guys to finish the season off and compete,” Adelman said. “And that’s all I’m trying to do now. I think there will be a right time to look at everything. I don’t want to really talk about those types of things until it’s done.”
