    Agreed. Iím not against trading him but I also donít believe he has been coached well since Flip passed.

    Ryan? Iím on record as saying he didnít earn the position and as result I donít think he will be successful but itís far to soon to determine if Iím right. I think weíll have a better idea by the end of the season.

    My understanding was that making the All Star Team will be s goal next year for him. Which I find nothing wrong with.

    He made it pretty clear that he will wait till next off-season to really try to make the All Start team. The idea of him making an all-star team is laughable first off but the real kicker is his dismissal of this season and the past.

    STrib: Saunders shakes up starting five; Timberwolves respond with needed win

    Wolves coach Ryan Saunders had a few players back, but another out sick. He felt it was time to make a change in the starting lineup, but he was forced to make two.

    On a snowy Monday, in as much of a must-win game as a team can find this time of year, the Wolves mixed and matched and managed to hold on for a win.

    So much happened in Minnesota’s 130-120 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, comeback specialists who had roared back from 20-plus down in three of their past five games. But the important thing: a win.

    “Obviously we’re not satisfied with one, but it’s hard to win in this league,’’ said Saunders, whose team was back home after an 0-3 road trip. “We had to scratch out a win. Sometimes you have to dig down.’’

    Dig they did. Jeff Teague was available, as was Derrick Rose. Saunders had already decided to make a change in the starting lineup, putting Dario Saric in for Taj Gibson, hoping Saric’s shooting would space the floor, giving Karl-Anthony Towns more room inside.

    But, with Andrew Wiggins out sick, Saric and Luol Deng started.

    Somehow, it worked.

    Deng played a team-high 37:50 and was a game-best plus-28. He scored 12 points with nine rebounds and two steals. Saric shook off early foul trouble to score 19 with eight rebounds. Teague had a 19-point, 10-assist double-double, and Towns had 24 points and 10 boards. Rose had 22 off the bench.

    Fun game last night. As much as I can't stand Rose the person, he made some amazing shots and stopped the Clippers run in the 2nd half.

    Souhan: Wolves' victory over Rockets provides a one-game glimpse into their future

    Wednesday night at Target Center, the NBA was what the NBA is supposed to be.

    All-Stars of almost unfathomable skill dueled, the Wolves wore purple to honor Prince, manic coaches traded strategic jabs, the crowd rose and ebbed all night, Jevetta Steele performed a stirring anthem and Sheila E. rocked the halftime, earning a standing ovation of her own.

    It was ideal downtown Minneapolis entertainment on a night when refuge from the cold, dark winter was appreciated.

    The Timberwolves took down Houston 121-111, with Josh Okogie and Karl-Anthony Towns starring before flying to Charlotte, Jeff Teague showing what this team can do with a quality point guard, and Luol Deng turning back the clock.

    Long after the game, the Wolves’ coach — his birth name appears to be, let’s see here, “32-year-old interim coach Ryan Saunders” — entered the locker room and handed a wristband to Towns. Towns put it on as the two laughed.

    “He’s our captain,” Towns said later of Saunders.

    This was a good night to embrace “small sample sizes.”

    Analysts use that phrase as an insult. But where would Minnesota sports be without small sample sizes?

    Kirby Puckett’s Game 6 was a small sample size. So were Jack Morris’ Game 7 and the Minneapolis Miracle.

    Perhaps major decisions shouldn’t be made based on SSSes, but sometimes small windows offer focused views.

    per Shooter:

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Fred Hoiberg within a month is named Timberwolves general manager with ex-Wolves coach Randy Wittman joining the front office, and if interim head coach Ryan Saunders is given the head coaching job with a $4.5 million, three-year contract.

    The Wolves owe fired coach Tom Thibodeau $20 million for the remaining two years of his contract.

    I have no opinion on Hoiberg (as long as he doesn't appoint himself coach), though I'd prefer giving Chauncey Billups a chance in the front office because I think he would attract FA's. I think Wittman should be kept far away from this franchise. Players have actively disliked him wherever he has coached.

    I actually like Hoiberg the coach better than the possilbe GM. I'd rather keep Saunders and hire Billups in a heart beat...so that won't be happening.

    per RandBall:

    Wolves

    The answers we seek: What can interim coach Ryan Saunders do with a healthy roster, and will it be enough for him to earn the job permanently?

    Clarity will arrive: Over the next two months. The Wolves resume play Friday after a long all-star break. While making the playoffs is a pretty remote possibility at this point, seeing how Saunders would coach — both in terms of style and rotations — with healthy point guards and Rob Covington is an important test over the final 25 games.

    Whitman hell no. I would love a Hoiberg(Coach) Chauncey (GM) duo with Saunders sliding down the bench for more seasoning.
