And Saunders, the son of the late Timberwolves coaching legend Flip Saunders, will be the leader players look to make that run happen. Thibodeau, 60, led the Timberwolves to the playoffs past year for the first time since 2004, but are just 19-21 on the season, including 5-15 on the road.
"I'm just taking everything day by day", Saunders said. Thibodeau's trademark hard nose coaching style and tendency to play starters extensive minutes eroded his relationship with both players and Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor. Several Timberwolves players attended the coach's wedding.
Ryan Saunders had served as an assistant in Minnesota since 2014. I think he's prepared a long time for this moment. "There's been a lot of changes, but I trust him". That's what we're going to believe in, support 100 percent. While the firing of Thibodeau is a bit anticipated already, many people thought that the team would forego the ouster until the end of this season. It will be the first time we get to see how the team's offense, defense and rotations will differ from Thibodeau.

No doubt part of those sales came from its Black Friday exclusive Spider-Man PS4 Slim bundle , which retailed for a low $199. More than likely, it'll be late spring, especially with such games as Medievil, Days Gone and Dreams coming our way.
"Minnesota will move away from the combined front office and coaching role that Thibodeau had", Andrews reported, citing sources. Ryan Saunders will be stepping in as coach on an interim basis.
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. Thibodeau, and his former players, were all caught off guard. "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".
Taylor said he was "just looking at the results".
