Timberwolves Not Considering Firing Ryan Saunders Despite 16-37 Record

Timberwolves Not Considering Firing Ryan Saunders Despite 16-37 Record

As the Minnesota Timberwolves undergo some wholesale changes at the All-Star break, the fate of head coach Ryan Saunders isn't up for debate.

Saunders, the son of the late Minnesota coach Flip Saunders, is just 33 years old and in his first full season running the Timberwolves after having succeeded Tom Thibodeau in January 2019 as the interim head coach.

Rosas orchestrated trade deadline deals to acquire D'Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley.

Even with the departure of Andrew Wiggins in the Russell deal, the team is arguably in a better position now than it has been since Saunders took over.

The team hit a franchise-record 26 three-pointers—Beasley had seven of them—shortly after the trade deadline deals were completed while taking down one of the Western Conference's top contenders in the Los Angeles Clippers.
