Taj Gibson posted his second straight double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds in 26 minutes on Sunday.
That's all well and good, but Gibson's minutes might be in jeopardy with the firing of Tom Thibodeau. The Wolves should be turning their eyes towards the future, which would be great news for Dario Saric. He was outplayed by Anthony Tolliver for the second straight game (25 minutes to 22) but we have a hard time imagining that keeps up now that the Wolves are under new management. Gibson's still a hold wherever he may be owned but his arrow is certainly pointing down, while Saric's stock should be trending upward. He's a flier if you're not happy with the end of your bench but we'd like to see a game or two with the new rotations before fully endorsing any moves.
