Ryan Saunders Rumors

Saunders’ position on the staff appeared to be in limbo when the Wolves relieved interim coach Sam Mitchell of his duties at the end of the season and hired Tom Thibodeau as head coach and president of basketball operations in April. The Wolves announced in May that many members of the front office and assistant coach Sidney Lowe would not be retained. Yet Saunders is still around. Saunders said he treated that time of uncertainly like he treats anything in life. “You just take things day by day and do the best you can with them and you do something until somebody tells you you don’t do it anymore,” Saunders said. “So that’s my approach. … I grew up in this business, I understand how things go.”
