The Minnesota Timberwolves have begun their search for a new president of basketball operations by reaching out to a couple of opposing executives.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Timberwolves were granted permission to speak with Los Angeles Clippers general manager Michael Winger.
The Wolves also reached out to Houston Rockets vice president Gersson Rosas, adds Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. Rosas, it seems, has been a candidate for nearly all of the league’s executive openings, but remains part of the Rockets’ front office.
At any rate, Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is looking for a head basketball man to replace Tom Thibodeau, fired during the season. Per several reports, the new hire will have the authority to decide whether to keep current Wolves GM Scott Layden and/or coach Ryan Saunders.
Minnesota finished 36-46 in failing to make the playoffs.
