While Saunders will serve as the interim coach of the team, it is highly-likely that he will be replaced soon.

New Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Ryan Saunders met with every player on the team individually on Monday after he was named the new man in charge of the club, according to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic. "We had just celebrated a good win, so we all went home thinking the day was over".

"Assistant coach Ryan Saunders will take over as interim coach for the rest of the season, while Scott Layden will remain Minnesota's general manager".

Hoiberg worked in Minnesota's front office following his retirement as an National Basketball Association player, and Wolves owner Glen Taylor has a well-known affection for him, according to league sources. "But with Thibs, like, he took a chance on me when a couple of organizations had s--ed on me". "If we want to make the playoffs this year, I have to make a move, '" Hine explained.

Taylor said he was "just looking at the results". Taylor has made clear that he expects results this season, but I thought Thibs would get the entire year to show them.

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. Hoiberg was recently fired by the Chicago Bulls and was in Minnesota as a player from 2003-05. He ended his stint in Minnesota on a two-game winning streak and with a total 97-107 record.

Former Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler, who also played for Thibodeau in Chicago, demanded a trade away from the team before the start of the season. 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.
