Tom Thibodeau Fired By Minnesota Timberwolves

Timberwolves fire Tom Thibodeau, may want Fred Hoiberg

On April 20, 2016, it was announced that the Minnesota Timberwolves had hired Thibodeau as head coach and president of basketball operations.

While Thibodeau was reportedly not expecting this news at all, it is sad nonetheless as the Timberwolves have had to restart too many times and this adds on as one of those.

Saunders is the son of former Timberwolves head coach and President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders; Flip died in October 2015 after a multi-year battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma. "We just lost against a bunch of teams that we're a better team".

"I think all of this was kind of a critical mass for (Timberwolves owner) Glen Taylor to say, 'Something is just not working here".

Democrats demand TV rebuttal time to Trump's Tuesday address
But Trump has demanded more than $5 billion for a barrier, which he now says could be steel slats rather than the solid concrete. He appealed to Congress to end "this crisis" and for every American to "call Congress" and tell them to "secure our border".

"I just don't think we are where we had hoped to be and where we thought we could be", Taylor said by phone.

Ryan Saunders will serve as the team's interim coach while Scott Layden will remain in his role as general manager.

"I think we have a pretty good team, barring injuries and stuff like that", Taylor said. He ended his stint in Minnesota on a two-game winning streak and with a total 97-107 record.

Hoiberg was sacked as coach of the Bulls on December 3 following a 5-19 start to the season.

Three things to watch in Trump's border wall Oval Office address
ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN , Fox broadcasting, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network and MSNBC all said they would air the rebuttal. One student, assuming the quotes came from Trump , said "the way he's referring to people across the wall is dehumanizing".

The list includes former New Orleans Pelicans coach and current Philadelphia 76ers assistant Monty Williams, former Chicago Bulls coach and Timberwolves guard Fred Hoiberg, and former Timberwolves guard and current ESPN analyst Chauncey Billups.

Thibodeau entered the season on the hot seat, which is why he was desperately trying to keep Jimmy Butler rather than trade him.

"You really don't get much sleep, getting thrown into this thing", Saunders said Tuesday morning, January 8, at the Timberwolves' shootaround.
