The Timberwolves announced Wednesday the search will begin for a president of basketball operations. That individual will then help decide whether general manager Scott Layden and interim coach Ryan Saunders remain in place.
The search is expected to begin at the end of the regular season, according to the team. The final game is Wednesday night in Denver.
The team stated the position has been vacant since former president of operations and head coach Tom Thibodeau was fired earlier in the season.
"In the absence of Tom, I want to thank all who picked up his responsibilities this past year," Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said in a statement. "They worked through a season with many injuries requiring many challenges in our player lineup. We are incredibly grateful to them for all of their hard work and commitment to the franchise."
A timeline has not yet been set and the team said no further updates would be provided "until the conclusion of the search."
