Reported by the Associated Press, Flip Saunders, President and Head Coach of the Timberwolves, is being treated for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of cancer.
Flip has been an integral part of making things positive again in Minnesota basketball-wise, and our thoughts go out to him and his family in this tough time. It is said to be treatable and that Flip will not step away from his basketball responsibilities. There has been a lot of support on social media from other teams and players, like Ricky Rubio. Flip reportedly was diagnosed three weeks before the draft and continued to make various moves from drafting Karl Towns number 1 overall to trading Chase Budinger to resigning Kevin Garnett.
Stay Strong Flip!
