Minneapolis, MN (KWSN) - It turns out the Timberwolves are hiring a former Skyforce head coach after all. After a two week long flirtation with Dave Joerger that turned out to be a dead end, the Timberwolves announced today that Flip Saunders will step in for another term as head coach.

Timberwolves owner Glenn Taylor cited Saunders’ familiarity with the current roster and organization as one of the major reasons why Saunders is returning. Taylor also said that timing also played a factor with the NBA Draft quickly approaching

Saunders coached the Skyforce from 1994-95 leading the team to a record of 34-22 and an apperance in the 1995 CBA Playoffs, he then left Sioux Falls to take over as General Manager of the Timberwolves in 1995 before being promoted to head coach later that year. During his time with Minnesota he guided the team to its first playoff birth in 1997 and the Western Conference Finals in 2004.
