Flip Saunders, Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations, says he will also serve as the team’s coach “until I feel we need to move in a different direction.”
In the final game of last season, and the final game of Rick Adelman’s coaching career, Kevin Martin went down swinging. While most of the Minnesota Timberwolves slogged through one last game in a massively disappointing season, Martin went after the Utah Jazz. He scored a season-high 36 points, attacked the rim to get to the free throw line for 10 shots and even came up with a couple of steals before fouling out in a rare show of aggression on the defensive end from him.
Flip Saunders spent the entire summer with his executive hat on, banging his head against a wall for a full month thanks to an arcane NBA rule that forced his Minnesota Timberwolves and the Cleveland Cavaliers to wait 30 days before completing a trade for Kevin Love.
When Flip Saunders sat down at a press conference Friday, he assumed a position of power within the Minnesota Timberwolves that sets him apart from most everyone else in the NBA.
Minnesota Timberwolves general manager Milt Newton says the team remains patient in its pursuit of a new coach and has yet to see any trade talks start to heat up.
Flip Saunders is a former coach himself, so he knows how coveted a head coaching job in the NBA can be.
