The Minnesota Timberwolves fired the team president and head coach Tom Thibodeau, a league source at ESPN on Sunday.
Wolves' victory in the 108-86 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers improved the record to 19-21, including 14-6 at home. These are the 11th in the Western Conference standings.
The Timberwolves are playing a short hand of the latter, with two of their top four scorers on Robert Covington (right knee knee) and Derrick Rose (twisted right ankle) still injuries.
Thibodeau finishes his tenure as Timberwolves coach with 97-107 record. His total win is tied to Rick Adelman for the second most team team history.
Chicago Bulls former coach Fred Hoiberg is seriously considering the owner of Minnesota Glen Taylor to be either future general manager or head coach, league sources told ESPN. Scott Layden remains GM of Minnesota.
Hoiberg, fired as Bulls coach in December, had previously worked as a GM assistant for Minnesota before becoming head coach of Iowa State in 2010.
At that time, Minnesota's current president Operations of basketball said David Kahn said Hoiberg was "tracked to become president of an NBA team because of his wide range of skills and ability to connect with people."
Hoiberg also spent the last two seasons of his career in Minnesota from 2003 -05.
