Minnesota Timberwolves fire Tom Thibodeau

Timberwolves fire Tom Thibodeau, may want Fred Hoiberg

Report: T-Wolves considering Hoiberg for GM or head coach

What's surprising is the timing of the move.

"I am not prioritizing one over the other in respect to the National Basketball Association and college", Hoiberg said.

"The end result is that we think we just lost a bunch of games that we thought we had the better team on the floor", Taylor said. He ended his stint in Minnesota on a two-game winning streak and with a total 97-107 record.

"I said let's let it go and see how things worked", Taylor said. Assistant coach Ryan Saunders will be filling in on an interim basis for the Wolves with general manager Scott Layden continuing in his current role. "If you look at something as a trial, I think that's when you start putting pressure on yourself or other people that just isn't there". It's already been a whirlwind of a season thanks to Sunday's firing of Thibodeau and the Jimmy Butler trade on November 12.

Hoiberg has been mentioned as a candidate for UCLA's head coaching vacancy. "I jinxed that badly", Towns said Monday, after the Timberwolves (19-21) gathered for their first practice without Thibodeau's familiar, gravelly voice leading the drills.

The Minnesota Timberwolves could have interest in Hoiberg in either a head coaching or general manager capacity.

"We wanted to go with somebody that was on the staff already so that we can make the transition a lot easier, somebody who knew the players, the players would know him", Taylor said. I think he's prepared a long time for this moment. That also seems to be Taylor's preference. "I would hope that we could get a string of wins together here and get ourselves into contention for the playoffs".
