Tom Thibodeau Rumors
But it seems more likely that he will receive extensive interest throughout the league as an associate head coach or as a lead assistant coach. One possibility is the Minnesota Timberwolves, where Tom Thibodeau now runs the basketball operations department and works as the head coach. Griffin used to coach on Thibodeau’s staff when Thibodeau worked for the Chicago Bulls.
Thibodeau said he hasn’t yet met with Wolves star Kevin Garnett to discuss his future — which includes a contract set to pay him $8 million for next season — but says he still intends to do so in the coming weeks. He coached Garnett for three seasons in Boston, including a 2008 title won together, when Thibodeau was a Celtics assistant coach.
