The NBA offseason has begun for some teams and Minnesota is already making a splash.
With a lot of elite coaches looking for work this Summer, the Timberwolves had a nice selection of candidates. Coaches like Jeff Van Gundy, David Blatt, and Mark Jackson were all available. When it came down to the final pick the Minnesota Timberwolves chose former Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibobeau.
Now this is a big win for the Wolves, picking up the 2011 NBA Coach of the year. However, this was also a win for Tom Thibodeau because he earned the most intriguing coaching job opening of the Summer. Who wouldn’t want to coach the rising Wolves, their roster is filled with a lot of young stars, Andrew Wiggings, Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine, a future 1st round pick this season, as well as a major star in Karl Anthony-Towns.
ESPN got to sit down with the new Wolves head coach to speak about his new job.
