New York Knick to miss London trip over assassination fears

Jeff Teague contributed a pair of 3-pointers to a game-opening, 15-1 run on Sunday afternoon that paved the way for the host Minnesota Timberwolves to post a 108-86 rout of a Los Angeles Lakers' squad missing LeBron James. Thibodeau was sacked shortly after the victory.

As of right now, it looks as though Ryan Saunders will take Thibodeau's place as head coach.

According to a report by The New York Times, Erdogan has jailed, fired or suspended tens of thousands of people accused of plotting a failed coup. While the timing was a bit off, the Thibodeau ouster is already around the corner for some time now, given his internal conflicts with the organization.

Hoiberg looms as the early frontrunner to replace Thibodeau as the coach in Minnesota, with ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reporting his previous relationship with the organisation holds him in good stead. Fred Hoiberg, who was sacked by the Chicago franchise in December past year is said to be under consideration by Taylor.

Thibodeau was named president and head coach of the Wolves in April 2016.

Taylor told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he didn't think the team had performed up to its abilities.

"I jinxed that badly", Towns said Monday, after the Timberwolves (19-21) gathered for their first practice without Thibodeau's familiar, gravelly voice leading the drills. But their 4th quarter woes continued and they choked, which cost them the game. "I can get killed pretty easy".

He said: "I talk to the front office and decided I'm not going".

In three seasons in Chicago, Hoiberg led his team to the playoffs just once and it remains to be seen whether he would be eager to jump back into coaching after such a gruelling experience. He served five seasons as an assistant coach with Washington prior to that.

Billups played two seasons with the Timberwolves from 2000 to 2002 before signing with Detroit in free agency.

"I don't want to comment on that dual role", Layden said. His best is against the club that drafted and traded him, Cleveland (25.6), and after that is Toronto (24.0), his hometown team.

Thibodeau finished 97-107 with the Wolves, who returned to the National Basketball Association playoffs last spring after a 13-year absence. "We are professionals, we know how to play basketball, so we just got to come together and step up", said McGee.

"We got off to a slow start".
