Report: T-Wolves considering Hoiberg for GM or head coach

Timberwolves fire Tom Thibodeau, may want Fred Hoiberg

Saunders is the son of former Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders. He ended his stint in Minnesota on a two-game winning streak and with a total 97-107 record. "I think (Saunders) is going to be great".

"We would like to thank Tom for his efforts and wish him all the best", Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said in a statement. Priot to being hired as an assistant by the Wizards in 2009, Saunders was a graduate assistant under Tubby Smith at the University of Minnesota in 2008, helping the program to an NCAA Tournament appearance. Everyone believes in him, respects him, trusts him. Towns as well as teammate Andrew Wiggins were told about the firing by phone, and were reportedly not given a solid answer as to why.

Saunders is younger than three of his players, and he appeared a bit nervous but handled his first news conference smoothly while surrounded by a horde of reporters and cameras on the team's practice court.

"We've got so much talent on this team".

Donators would have to use a lever to move the rotational top in order to place their bag in a small opening. It has been suggested that the design of the bins is responsible for the people becoming trapped inside.


"If you look at something as a trial, I think that's when you start putting pressure on yourself or other people that just isn't there", Saunders said.

Ryan Saunders will serve as the Timberwolves' interim head coach moving forward, while Scott Layden is the team's general manager.

Thibodeau, who was one game short of the exact midpoint of his five-year contract that's worth about $40 million, was frequently booed during introductions at Target Center, where the Wolves are next-to-last in the league with an average of 14,765 tickets distributed per game.

Former Chicago Bulls and Iowa State Cyclones head coach Fred Hoiberg told ESPN on Monday that he'd prefer to stay in coaching - at either the college or pro level - rather than return to an National Basketball Association front-office role. "I don't know if you can classify anybody as necessarily a "Thibs guy" or 'Chicago guy.' Everybody has been in this organization to try and help this organization become better, and that's everyone's main focus". "It's just not", Rose said.
