Karl-Anthony Towns Stunned By Tom Thibodeau's Firing

Karl-Anthony Towns Stunned By Tom Thibodeau's Firing

It was a shocking development on Sunday when the Minnesota Timberwolves chose to fire head coach and Team President Tom Thibodeau despite a 22-point blowout against the Los Angeles Lakers. "I think that was the beginning of this tipping point for Thibodeau to be let go".

Ryan Saunders will serve as the team's interim coach while Scott Layden will remain in his role as general manager. "These decisions are never easy to make, but we felt them necessary to move our organization forward". Monty Williams and Chauncey Billups have also been reportedly discussed. "I guess Taylor did not like the direction things were heading and chose to make a change now".

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

"The results are that I don't think we should've lost against Phoenix or Detroit or New Orleans or Atlanta", Taylor said. "I wanted it to be made on what I said, we gave it about a half a year's worth of games, and it wasn't one particular loss that did it". "We had just celebrated a good win, so we all went home thinking the day was over". Hoiberg was most recently the coach of the Chicago Bulls, but was sacked from his post in December.

He refused to say whether the hospital would subject its male staff members to DNA tests to help identify a suspect. It happened at Hacidena Healthcare, a facility for medically fragile children, teens, and adults.

The Timberwolves hired Thibodeau in April 2016.

Fred Hoiberg could be on the verge of replacing Tom Thibodeau for a second time if Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor gets his way. It's already been a whirlwind of a season thanks to Sunday's firing of Thibodeau and the Jimmy Butler trade on November 12. The need to hold on to him while seemed unnecessary before he was gone was reinforced after the world saw how much better Robert Covington and Dario Saric have fit into the rotation.

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