Ryan Saunders Rumors
What do the Timberwolves do with Wiggins after this year? Also, do the Timberwolves clean house and fire both Saunders and Layden? Or just Layden? Sam Amick: @RYAN M. I think Ryan probably gets to hold onto the job, but we shall see. Heard last night that the odds of him getting another crack at it seemed fairly good. Not sure on Scott or Wiggins (just being honest).
Fred Katz: Ryan Saunders with strong words for the Timberwolves: “It’s hard to win in the NBA. It’s even harder to win on the road. It’s even harder to win on the road in the NBA when your defensive intensity is not there. It hasn’t been there in these three games.”
Gorgui Dieng missed the Timberwolves’ first two games out of the All-Star break because of personal reasons. When he came rejoined, Dieng was out of the rotation. The backup center has not played in any of the past three games, including Thursday night’s 122-115 loss to the Indiana Pacers, even though he was healthy. Dieng’s benching was a call interim coach Ryan Saunders made.
