Ryan Saunders is no longer the Timberwolves interim head coach.
According to The Athletic and Stadium’s Shams Charania, Minnesota and Saunders have agreed to a multi year contract that makes Saunders the head coach.
Saunders , the sone of former head coach Flip Saunders, was named the the interim coach after Tom Thibodeau was broken off on January 6 and at 32, was the league’s youngest head coach. However his installation in the position did not leave to immediate success; the team went just 17-25 with Saunders at the helm but that was due in large part due to the maelstrom that of the Jimmy Butler saga that the franchise was swept up in.
With a full offseason to prepare and implement his steam and roster that is certainly not bereft of talent, it will be interesting to see what the young Saunders will be able to do.
