Ironically, now that Hoiberg has that experience, he might be a candidate to replace Thibodeau again. A league source close to the situation told NBC Sports that Hoiberg could be a candidate to take over in Minnesota where he’d be reunited with owner Glen Taylor.

Memphis Grizzlies guard Tyus Jones is excited for what will come next in his career with his new team, but he is also appreciative of his time with the Minnesota Timberwolves, who gave him the chance to play in his home state.

“I’ve just got a lot of emotions right now,” Jones said, according to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.

“I don’t really know how exactly to feel. I’m just excited. I’m just ready for my next chapter of my career and my life.”

Jones showed his appreciation to the Wolves.

“I’m thankful. It’s a situation where I was fortunate enough to be able to play in my home state, and for four years at that,” Jones said. “A lot of people don’t get the opportunity to do that. For me, it’s a chance to play in my home state as my first taste of the NBA and to help me get acclimated to the NBA lifestyle.

“It was nothing but a blessing. I am very thankful for that and look at it as nothing but a positive. Now I get to take that next step in my journey and my career, and I’m excited for that.”
