Tom Thibodeau Rumors
With training camp set to begin this week, Wolves president of basketball operations and head coach Tom Thibodeau made official some changes to his staff and announced extensive additions to the basketball operations staff. First, the coaches: The Wolves officially announced the additions of Andy Greer and Rick Brunson as assistant coaches, announced the addition of Peter Patton as shooting coach and the promotion of Vince Legarza to player development coach. Ryan Saunders – who coached the Wolves summer league entry – will be retained and Daisuke Yoshimoto will be the special assistant to Thibodeau.
Is this a playoff team? Tom Thibodeau: I don’t know where we are right now. As we prepare, going forward, the big thing is looking at what we’re doing each and every day. I don’t want to put a lid on what we can do, but I want us doing the right things. Concentrate on that improvement and how fast we get there, I don’t know. We’re young and we’re going to improve. I think we’ll be a different team at the end of the year than what we were at the beginning of the year.
