Timberwolves fire Tom Thibodeau, may want Fred Hoiberg

"I am not prioritizing one over the other in respect to the National Basketball Association and college", Hoiberg said. Team owner Glen Taylor said: "We would like to thank Tom for his efforts and wish him all the best".

After a strenuous offseason and hard start to the regular season, the Minnesota Timberwolves have relived Tom Thibodeau of his coaching duties after three seasons.

"I said let's let it go and see how things worked", Taylor said.

Currently, Assistant Coach Ryan Sanders will take on all coaching duties, thus becoming the youngest ever head coach in the NBA at just 32 years old, and General Manager Scott Layden will take care of basketball operations.

The Timberwolves then lost at home to Detroit and Atlanta and on the road against New Orleans, which played without Anthony Davis. "I'm coaching on the fly at the moment and I'm putting a lot of thoughts to paper now and really trying to organize those things".

Gonzalez said that the tipster had approached writer and activist Shaun King days earlier, and King passed the tip on to police. Investigators said they believe the gunman believed he was targeting someone else when he started shooting.

It was Thibodeau's decision to trade a chunk of that young talent for Jimmy Butler, the disgruntled star who all but forced his way out of Minnesota early this season and was traded to Philadelphia.

Hoiberg has been mentioned as a candidate for UCLA's head coaching vacancy. Most people linked Thibodeau and Layden after they were brought in together in the summer of 2016, but Taylor said he held Thibodeau accountable as the coach.

After the Minnesota Timberwolves fired head coach Tom Thibodeau, the organization named Ryan Saunders as the interim coach for the remainder of the 2018-19 season. "Yeah, we're ready to go".

Taylor said he "would assume" it was Saunders' goal to earn the full-time position. "I would hope that we could get a string of wins together here and get ourselves into contention for the playoffs".
