Saunders, 36, noted how much he and his family are enjoying living in Denver. Winning helps too. Denver is 24-12, 1st place in the Western Conference.
Saunders was 43-94 as coach of the Timberwolves in his two-plus seasons. He was only able to coach his two All-Star players, Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell, in a total of five games. Saunders was an assistant with the Wolves prior to being elevated to head coach.
