The future of Tom Thibodeau as head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves is uncertain as they move into a new phase without Jimmy Butler.

The Wolves were the No. 8 seed last season.

Glen Taylor is known to be very fond of Fred Hoiberg as a potential coaching candidate, who coincidentally replaced Thibodeau with the Bulls.

Ryan Saunders, who is an assistant coach on Thibodeau's staff, is also held in high regard by Taylor.
