The Timberwolves have fired president and coach Tom Thibodeau.
Wow. This was expected to be Thibs' last season in Minnesota anyways, but there were no rumblings of a firing – especially given the Wolves won by 22 points on Sunday. Thibs was back to his old tricks by playing players too much and we've seen injuries to Derrick Rose and Robert Covington because of it. This is probably best for Dario Saric and worst for Taj Gibson from a fantasy perspective, but it's still unclear who will take over as coach. While some may say the Timberbulls are over, Fred Hoiberg is a consideration for the job according to Adrian Wojnarowski. That would be a galaxy-brain Timberbulls move.
