"New captain" Saunders has Wolves’ trust in interim role

Minnesota is now 11th in the West and only two games away from the eighth seed after a 22-point win over the Los Angeles Lakers, who now hold that spot.

"We would like to thank Tom for his efforts and wish him all the best", Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said in a statement. "These decisions are never easy to make, but we felt necessary to move our organization forward".

Scott Layden is now Minnesota's general manager, while Thibodeau was relieved of his duties as president and head coach on Sunday. Monty Williams and Chauncey Billups have also been reportedly discussed. For the time being, assistant coach Ryan Saunders will take over for Thibodeau on an interim basis.

"I'm hurt because Thibs is not here". "I think everyone knows this is special... for a number of reasons".

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

Clough: 'Pep's City tougher than Fergie's Utd'
The Catalan defended his decision not to start Phil Foden, claiming David Silva was in need of minutes after injury. We could do better with one or two but the gulf of the two teams is far too much to comprehend.

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

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. Hoiberg was recently fired by the Chicago Bulls and was in Minnesota as a player from 2003-05. Thibodeau, 60, led the Timberwolves to the playoffs previous year for the first time since 2004, but are just 19-21 on the season, including 5-15 on the road.

"Layden and Minnesota CEO Ethan Casson walked into Thibodeau's office and fired him after the victory over the Lakers, league sources told ESPN".

Hoiberg has been mentioned as a candidate for UCLA's head coaching vacancy.

The Timberwolves will face the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.
