From the Pioneer Press:
Kevin McHale sounds as if he plans to return next season as vice president of basketball operations for the Timberwolves, but he isn't ready to say it's definite.

McHale plans to attend the camp in Portsmouth, Va., preceding the NBA draft.
The Wolves face the Nuggets in Denver tonight.
