Tom Thibodeau Rumors
While this soap opera was occurring, Thibodeau continued his policy of having a blackout when it came to the Wolves’ workouts of potential draft choices. Previously, this had been one way to get reporters and TV cameras to visit between the end of the regular season and the draft. The Wolves would work out two guys one day, another the next, and there would be a modest level of conversation over this in the media and perhaps the public. This was harmless fun for all, but it doesn’t fit Thibodeau’s egotistic view that he has no need to sell his product other than in the standings.
Several league executives who spoke to the Tribune believe Tom Thibodeau’s Timberwolves could engage the Bulls on Thursday, although that package likely would have to include young players because the seventh pick falls outside the top impact players.
Q. Who’s tougher on you, Thibs or Cal? Karl-Anthony Towns: Haha. Ahhhh … I’ma say Cal. Cal was very hard on me. Thibs is hard on me, but Cal was otherworldly hard on me. It was definitely something I enjoyed, funny enough. I was always able to take the criticism. I was always able to talk to him. They both have love for me.
