Tom Thibodeau Agrees to Become Head Coach & President of Timberwolves

Published

on

Last year, the Chicago Bulls wrongfully fired head coach Tom Thibodeau, in an attempt to revive their offense for the 2016 season. However, Fred Hoiberg’s inability to connect with the players, including Jimmy Butler calling out the team numerous times, as well as himself, was not enough for the team to make the playoffs. Today, the Minnesota Timberwolves have hired the disgruntled second best coach in the league and have given him complete control in team roster decisions.

Thibs new deal with Minny gives him $10 million annually over the next five years, which we’re sure will be re-upped before its completion (if he helps develop the young core of stars). Wolves owner, Glen Taylor hand-picked Tom this off-season, as he expects the careers of Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine to progress in the coming years.

Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson were also options, but the T-Wolves are now a team to look out for in 2017 – especially with an imminent top 5 next month’s NBA Draft lottery awaiting.

Los Angeles Lakers Reportedly Make Every Player Available in Trades Except LeBron James

Published

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost 6 of their last 10 games and have fell to 9th place in the western conference. With LeBron James still battling an alleged sports hernia injury, that’s had him out the last 6 weeks; LA is worried about their season. After the trade, we’ll report a bizarre trade that involved two superstars last weekend – but was shut down after the Lonzo Ball injury.

Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka, Kobe Bryant and LeBron are now officially in panic-mode. The team has reportedly made every player on the team, except LeBron James (and client Kentavious Caldwell-Pope) available for trades. The deadline is next Thursday, February 7th at 3:00pm ET; as we expect the team to make a slew of deals that won’t include Anthony Davis.

Since their New Orleans deal is dead, the team is now focused on adding superstars through free agency. So, they’re planning to trade Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram.

With the Lake Show blueprinting things out, the likes of Terrence Ross, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington, and Garrett Temple are veteran three-point shooters the team wants to add.

James who turned 34 last month, he’s suffered his first major injury, which we don’t expect to heal this season. From our examination of LeBron, he’s looking slower and has no major lift any more.

Now that his athleticism is gone and he never developed fundamentals (consistent post-scoring, off-ball play, free-throws etc); we’re not sure if this is right move to make.

Let us know in the comments if you’d trade players for the short-term

per ESPN

After a standoff that has stretched into the first part of the season, the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to trade Jimmy Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

Butler and the Sixers expect to reach a deal on a long-term contract this summer, league sources told ESPN. The Sixers made the trade to add Butler to a Big Three with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

The Timberwolves will receive a package that includes Robert CovingtonDario SaricJerryd Bayless and a second-round pick, sources said, and Minnesota will also send Justin Patton to Philadelphia.

Butler, who is expected to become a free agent after this season, requested a trade prior to Timberwolves media day in September. He ultimately reported to the team and was averaging 21.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game for the 4-9 Timberwolves.

Once the trade is complete, the Timberwolves may waive Bayless, but the team is still considering its options, sources said.

The Sixers' odds to win the NBA title have improved from 30-1 to 16-1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and their odds to win the Eastern Conference went from 7-1 to 3-1.
