    Default Minnesota Timberwolves fire coach and team president Tom Thibodeau

    The Minnesota Timberwolves fired president and coach Tom Thibodeau on Sunday, clearing the way for ownership to revamp the team's basketball operations.

    The move came moments after the Wolves' 108-86 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers improved their record to 19-21, including 14-6 at home. They are 11th in the Western Conference standings.

    Minnesota CEO Ethan Casson, accompanied by general manager Scott Layden, walked into Thibodeau's office and fired him after the victory over the Lakers, league sources told ESPN. Thibodeau had no idea his ouster was imminent, sources said.

    Layden will remain in place for now, but his future remains uncertain, sources said. Former Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg as well as ESPN analyst Chauncey Billups have been discussed as possible candidates for GM or head coach, sources said, but the organization has yet to reach out to either.

    I don't understand why he insists on running his guys into the ground playing excessive minutes. He's a good defensive coach that nobody can stand.

    They improved when they got rid of Butler.

    Yeah Butler is a huge penis - which is probably why he and Butler always got along. But then Covington got hurt because TT's playing him 40 minutes a night.
