Mitchell Robinson (ankle) a game-time decision for Knicks Friday

10 Janvier 2019

The Minnesota Timberwolves fired head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau, according to multiple reports Sunday, hours after the team beat the Los Angeles Lakers 108-86.

And now Towns' second coach was sacked shortly after a blowout win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. "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". Thibodeau had no idea his ouster was imminent, sources said.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are in the market for a new head coach after parting ways with Tom Thibodeau.

Taylor told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis that he didn't blame Thibodeau for Butler's discontent, but the owner said he believed the team was underachieving.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported it was Wolves chief executive officer Ethan Casson and general manager Scott Layden who delivered the news. "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".

The Timberwolves outshot the Lakers 46.1 percent to 36.8 and outscored them 33-15 on 3-pointers, with Teague and Wiggins each hitting a game-high three. So that's why I talked to the [Knicks'] front office. "I can be killed easily". The 54-year-old served as assistant in Minnesota in the 1990-91 campaign as part of his father's coaching staff and was close to Flip Saunders.

He said he could not travel anywhere except the USA and Canada because "there's a chance I could get killed out there".

Billups played two seasons with the Timberwolves from 2000 to 2002 before signing with Detroit in free agency.

When asked if there's pressure to do more because James and Kyle Kuzma (back) have been sidelined with injuries, Ball indicated it has been the same regardless of whether or not they are missing key players.

It's the Nets' 12th win in 15 games, matching the best 15-game stretch since the team moved to Brooklyn in 2012.

Thibodeau, 60, was hired by the Timberwolves in 2016 and led the team to a playoff appearance last season.

Butler was not available for comment, and the Sixers said he would not play Saturday night due to an upper respiratory infection.

While it's never easy taking over a new job on the fly, Saunders has built a relationship with the playing group and has the backing of GM Glen Taylor.
