Flip Saunders appears to have options: aside from proving himself adept in front of ESPN cameras, sources say both
the U. of Minnesota and NBA Timberwolves have expressed varying degrees of interest in bringing Saunders back to their respective folds. The return to the Gophers, his alma mater, would be to fill their head-coaching vacancy; with the Timberwolves, it would be to join the front office should they decide to make a change with GM David Kahn. A source said owner Glen Taylor still utilizes Saunders, who coached the Timberwolves for a decade, as a sounding board and is still well-regarded within the organization. Having spent a little bit of time around Flip, I'd guess a return to coaching would be his first inclination, even if it's at the collegiate level.
