Saunders supplants Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton (38), and has turned a career as a former player at the University of Minnesota and assistant with the Washington Wizards and Timberwolves into a surprising head coaching role at such a fresh age. "These decisions are never easy to make, but we felt them necessary to move our organization forward".

Thibodeau also served as Minnesota's president of basketball operations.

Karl-Anthony Towns and the Timberwolves will be playing for interim coach Ryan Saunders presumably for the rest of the season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves could have interest in Hoiberg in either a head coaching or general manager capacity. For the time being, assistant coach Ryan Saunders will take over for Thibodeau on an interim basis.

"After the trade happened, there was little bit of energy and life in the team", Minneapolis Star-Tribune Timberwolves writer Chris Hine said on Ferrall on the Bench.

"I'm just taking everything day by day", Saunders said.

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

"The results are that I don't think we should've lost against Phoenix or Detroit or New Orleans or Atlanta", Taylor said.

"We still have hopes to get into the playoffs and I think with half the season left, let's see if this change will make a difference". "Maybe one of those games".

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, former Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg is "seriously considered" by Minnesota. Minnesota then tried to fix the problem by shipping Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for young, excellent players in Dario Saric and Robert Covington. He was named the NBA Coach of the Year on May 1, 2011, after tying the record for most wins by a rookie head coach with 62.

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