Minnesota Timberwolves, who were in bad shape in the NBA, parted ways with coach Ryan Saunders. The new head coach was determined immediately.

According to .’s Shams Charania, Timberwolves’ new coach was Chris Finch, who was the assistant coach of Toronto Raptors.

Gersson Rosas, head of Wolves Basketball Operations, made a press release thanking Saunders, saying that they dismissed the coach and expressed his best wishes to him.

Chris Finch, who is expected to sign a contract as the new head coach, will not have a problem with the Raptors at the point of separation, according to Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN.

Finch, 51, who was the head coach of the Great Britain National Team in the past, developed different assistant experiences with many teams at the NBA level.

Finch, who carried Sheffield Sharks to the British championship in the late 90s when he was fighting with the EuroLeague team London Towers, was the assistant of Nick Nurse, the coach of the Towers at that time.

Wolves, which has a star like Karl-Anthony Towns, has only 7 wins in 31 games and anchored in the last place.
